I got the first of my 2 fully built shiga hooked up tonight.

First impressions: very positive indeed, excellent sound considering that it's just thrown together at the moment.

Me and the little connectors didn't get on too well, I will probably solder the motor wiring directly I think. Other thing is that it seems a little more picky about the cds that the jvc shiga. Playback is perfect so far on perfect discs, but I have skips and toc fails on more scratched ones.

I took a short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LJ6...e_gdata_player

Thanks tibi! The work of the chassis now is next.

Instructions are all on tibi site - primaries to suit your voltage, centre tap on the tx secondary to the centre of the connector on the power board, other ends of the secondaries to the other sides of the connector.

Something else for other builders to watch out for: make sure that you fit the motor cable the correct way around. If you fit the connectors first to one end of the 6 way ribbon, then the connector at the other end needs to be "upside down" so that SP+, SP-, SL+ SL- and so on connect the correct way around. Just watch it when you are putting the cable together.
