Are you using Tibi's power supply module? insteady of ripping it out, have you try bypassing it with a 10uF MLCC ?

I don t like adding more components that are not needed for the operation of the transport. Once the chassis is closed, it won't be visible anyway...

The TOC seems to be read a bit faster. Unfortunately the bent rotor and the wobbling puck do not allow for further testing... The CD cannot read anything past track 3 in most CDs

New puck was shipped today.

I did some consumption measurements.

At rest (with non-moded display at full brightness) the transport pulls around 77mA

The usual track reading consumption was something around 280mA

During TOC reading and other phases like track switching, stopping, starting, error re-reading where the motors are heavily used for either moving stuff or breaking, I noticed consumption of up to 800mA, with more common something around 500-600mA.

This changed my Salas plans a lot... I will need some serious heatsinks now...

Good and Bad news

They still do it for me but they charge 245 euro for a combination (platform and puck)

Anyway I ordered two and will let you know

"245 euro for a combination (platform and puck) "
That's equal to about $315.00 Aussie dollars each and you ordered two!
That's more than the shiga kit all up.
All i can say is you are dedicated.

The heavy-demand phases are very short and only happen occasionally, so as long as your heat-sink can handle the playback dissipation, you should be fine.
