Default Shiga project status update

Another update.

We have received the trafos from factory.
These are ultra low-noise with magnetic shield.
PCB board have been sent from factory and we expect to receive them today.
The good news is that remote PCB boards will be received also today.
LCD displays arrived in Bucharest and we wait for customs clearance.

Regards,
Tibi

Default Shiga project status

Tibi,

Sounds like things are coming together nicely!

When you are farther along with the design and build cost for the proposed handheld Remote Control and also the CD Clamp, let us all know the details on possibly purchasing those from you.

I know you had mentioned possibly doing a DAC at some point and that also would be something folks would be interested in.

I do not have a stand alone DAC and have been considering what to do. I considered a used Oppo BDP-95, which has the Sabra 32 Bit DAC's, but other than a USB Input, there are no Digital Optical or Digital Coaxial Inputs to feed a digital signal from an outboard CD Transport to the the Oppo's DAC section.

So...I am still looking for a state of the art DAC, and just as importantly, one that has a state of the art line level analog output stage to feed to my preamp.

Hi Sean,
Hi all,

The boards arrived yesterday ! :-)

We have also a puck concept and also a prototype. It is a very simple one.
Tomorrow IŽll post remote price as well.

About our dac. This is called Spartan and make use of 4 x CS4398 in parallel. Output is passive and use transformers.
This is a commercial product and was initially designed to be used in conjunction with a PC trough USB. We have customised a Linux distro to only 8MB . The goal was to reduce jitter and provide a constant data flow to USB.
Same dac will be interfaced with a spdif receiver. Pictures tomorrow. :-)

Regards,
Tibi

And here is a remote mounted.
Pcb was intentionally made single side, with no holes.
This allow you to make a box very easy.

Tibi

Hi Tibi,
Do you have the dimension of the remote pcb and buttons ? I want to look for an aluminum case but might require custom drilling for those buttons.

Thanks
