Mini-regs are optional. You get min-reg boards, but not populated.
You may want to use tentlabs, burson or any other reg.
The single reg which is included in kit is ADP151, but again not mounted. I'm sure that some people will get Shiga MKII sounding great and will prefer do not modify further.

Tibi,
I take from your excitement that this version in stock form is better than the first. How does it compare to the original? I know when I get mine that is what I will be comparing it to. If all goes well I will be trying different regs to see which ones work better.

Erik,
Is there a particular person to contact to get some of those very nice looking transformers. I looked for information but was unable to find anything that pointed me in the right direction.

Hi there,

Sorry for my late response....due to listening to music

I mounted the laserplatform on two corners....one tight and one loose so no tension on the board.

The transformers come from Acoustic Dimension Delft (the Netherlands) they speak english.

Acoustic-Dimension, high-end audio and components for tube audio

They have experience with the Shiga-project so they know what you are talking about.

Please resend your shipping details, as I lost several forum messages.

A quick and small Shiga MK II, Did finish the copper bottom plate today, did use 10mm thick plates , I use cobber onely because its easy to work whit and i got alot of CU ,don't beleave that it will make the sound better.

But adding a BlackGate N 1000uf/25 v in the powersupply board make wonders.

And importantly, the twisted 8v power cord this way is a lot shorter than on the previous photos
