I now use no aluminum puck, ordered also a laptop-type clamp on ebay where you can click the cd out like in a laptop cd rom.
If I have the new Shiga I do a good compare easier interchangeable.
The sound of the aluminum puck is better than the magnetic puck.
I would say, do not continue with the magnetic puck search than an alternative.

Regards,
Rudy
Edit: here you see the shiga working with a Laptop-type clamp sorry the sound is to loud:

The puck will be a real issue for many. People have been looking at it from the very start of the shiga story with limited success. The problem always is around the new platform running true when mounted. I worked around this by using a brass insert in the standard platform and using an ebony screw down puck.

It seems that the easiest thing is to scavenge scavenge a puck from a lid of another boom box. It should be possible to machine a new puck with some magnets too, but accuracy would be key. Having said that, all manufacturers using top loading mechs make them.

The other thing is that I bought a couple of the 3 ball type mechs for my shiga, but I had big problems with skipping and not playing. The alignment or something must have been off. I just mention that here as something to be aware of.

Anyone know if the codes are available from somewhere? I have a Marantz RC9500. If I can get the codes it would save me even having to spring for the remote.

I'm pretty sure that the codes have been mentioned in this thread, but can't recall it myself - search is your friend!

Default CD Clamp

The easy solution if you want to build your own CD Puck is a ceramic ring magnet that is not overly strong.
cPath_2_28 | products_id_258 | Ceramic Ring Magnets 28mm OD x 14mm ID x 4mm - Applied Magnets & WindMax Wind Turbines

The ID is 14mm and OD is 28mm. On the standard SF-P101N 16 pin 16p CD Mechanism, with a CD in place, I then applied an interface layer to the bottom of the magnet so it was contacting the top of the CD, but allowing the 14mm ID surface of the magnet to center on the CD Turntable tapered surface. The result is perfect alignment of the CD Puck. At that point, you can attach a turned piece of wood or plastic if you so desire, to make a handle, etc.

Not unlike LP, in measuring run-out of the CD Clamp noted, I measured FAR MORE run-out associated with the typical CD centering hole variations from manufacturing tolerances, than in the CD Puck. There is nothing that can be done about CD centering hole variations and all CD tracking servos are designed to handle that issue quite nicely.
