Hi Tibi,

I have the CD Puck ordered.
Might be an option, boards of the 5v Salas low voltage shunt regulator because dimkasta have good results with those regs.

Here a picture of Doede his site this is how I mean inclusive the transformer, plug in and play.
These are 5v 1A regs, I think that 80mA will be enough.
Only the 2 motor has more power needed.

The orange wire is the 5V which connects the main pcb and the display pcb.

Thanks syklab,

Waiting now for the terminals, when they arrive I go further.
I have no hurry because I can listen every day, to my Shigaclone.
The only goal for me is to make Tibiís Shiga better sounding.

Hi Skylab,

I look again to your picture and see you use red for GND and purple for +8v :confused:
Be aware you make no mistakes with diferent colors.
The other side of the PCB is +8v, on the wrong side the intention was, here the + 8v connection.
Then the error thus made

I have changes the inlet with a fuse ;)

I inserted the cable in the wrong direction, the blue is +8V and reed is ground, I have marked te red cable with a black marker so I won't forget. I will make a correct cable later.

Nothing special to show, except my enclosure (sans top). It is currently drying from its final coat of semi-gloss polyurethane. I decided to stain it Cherry. Looks better in person than in the pic.

You can see that because the cabinet walls are thicker than a standard aluminum enclosure I had to cut a slot for the buttons instead of small holes - the buttons would have never cleared the wall thickness that way. I don't have a router, so I couldn't route out the backside to help.

Considering the last time I did any hobby woodwork was in high school shop class I guess it's not horrible.

Hi Syklab,

Did you get the chance to replace the clock with Anton's kit?
I aso have the same kit and eager to hear your impressions.


tonyptony 31st March 2013 07:32 PM

Fred, which kit?

pchw 31st March 2013 07:41 PM

Hi Tony,

This GB. Contact Anton if you are interested, he may still have the kit or pcb available. Since you are interested in a dedicated PS to the clock, this kit should make it easier. Also, read the last 2 posts for Syklab's question and Anton's answer of how to do the wiring.
