Thanks Tibi, I'll take it in tomorrow and check it at lunch time when the lab is not used. I cleaned it with alcohol so anything should show up.

All IC leads re-soldered with enough (too much) solder to bulge over the leads. (pad for pin 10 on U2 (la6541) lifted, but it is a NC pin so ok. All discrete components re-soldered with excess solder.

Board cleaned with alcohol and inspected again. No issues found. I'll try it again this evening. Hopefully this fixed it.

Default Best Digital Cables for the Shinga

All of us using the Shinga Transport are going to need a Digital Cable of some kind. I am trying to determine what cable to get and where one reaches the point of diminishing returns on the money spent. You can spend insane amounts of money on this stuff if you are so inclined.

Is anyone aware of any serious comparisons of at least some of the available digital cables?

That leads to the next question...What digital cables...that are readily available...are considered to be really good?

Consider the LessLoss Digital.You asked about the point of diminishing returns. This might be the cable.

I don t have a boutique one but I have a cheap one laying around from my home-theater era. It is no good.... I am currently using a short CAT5 twisted pair with a pair of quality connectors and it is really really much better.
