But on the original shiga there was a switch that the laser sled touched.... But it mustn't be on this board or else the prototype above wouldn't work....

This is what I am trying to say - the switch is built into the Sanyo CD mech, you can just about see it on the picture: SANYO OPTICAL LASER LENS SF-P101N (15PIN) W/MECHANISM | eBay

OK, I think I see the story now. When I've used one of the ebay mechs I've always taken off that bottom board...

I just a did a check there, and the mechs I have are the 16pin versions and they have the switch. I also looked at a mech that I bought with the 3 ball platform (ie no magnetic puck needed) and it doesn't have the bottom board. I probably removed it while testing though.

Sorry for the confusion!!

Ah, but the nuances are important too! I was referring to the cap construction in this case. So if I am looking for a nuanced movement in the direction of clarity, which wood choice do I make?

There are two basic versions of the SF-P101N mechanism. The only difference being the CD mount.

If I am correct, the recommendation is to remove the factory mounting mechanism (left - 3 ball or right - 3 point clinch) and replace it with either a magnetic or mechanical screw clamp assembly.

Note these mechanisms are also available in 15 Pin vs the required 16 pin variant for ShigaClone.

Ebony is your choice then. I did mean it when I said it is expensive though - just enough of it to make one capacitor like my VNM Cap, would cost me about 125. I could make such a cap for you, naturally - but even I would consider it a bit extravagant! Your money would be much better spent getting another VNM cap for use in C9 (C908), or for your DAC input.

Keep in mind, what actually matters is the overall resonant behaviour of the entire component. One could conceivably build an excellent, rigid oak capacitor, that would sound superior to flimsy / poorly made ebony cap. This is not unlike making musical instruments (the famous "pallet guitar" by Bob Taylor proves it's not all about the exquisite timbers). So I settled for sapele, which is an excellent-sounding wood, and pleasant to work with - if not quite the best there is.

The same rule holds true for the entire devices by the way - their resonant properties can have significant impact on the sound, but the way they are built and mounted is just as important as the materials used.
