Franz, no problem, I'm keeping one kit for you until tomorrow.

sondguy, still no reply from you. I replied to your emails since the beginning. I'll try again. Are you sure that you don't have a spam filter activated that reject my replies?

Default Spindle wobbles

Just gutted my new Boombox last night and threw together a basic PSU. I only performed some basic testing and was using the analog out of the CD-board.
One thing I did notice and was unhappy about was a slight wobble of the CD, it was even wobbling a bit when the magnetic puck was not installed (it still played ok). Has anyone had the same experience?

I really like this project, thanks Peter

I just visited Brussels and noticed Shikaraki reviews in two magazines. The other one was Music Emotion but I can't remember what the other one was (French, Belgian, Dutch?). I didn't buy them since I didn't understand a word.

I just made a comparison between a NAD C541i (SPDIF out) with the Shigaclone.

Unbelievable, the difference!

I just used Marla Glen, This is Marla Glen, because I know this recording so well.

With the shigaclone, all "air" from this recording is back.

Sorry, because my limited english knowledge, I should avoid to describe sound experiences.

Next step for my shigaclone:

I realized, that SPDIF and AES/EBU are mostly the same, but AES/EBU is not so "bad" as SPDIF.

Differences are the level and unbalanced vs. balanced.

I think, it is very bad for SPDIF in real live, that all devices are using this RCA plugs. Not 75 Ohm at all.

As I remember, it was Sony insisting on RCA, while Philips wanted to implement BNC.

Exactly what I will do as next step: convert my DAC(s) to BNC input. And use a RG59 cable, direct out of the shigaclone.

/Edit
I will bring the player soon to the office, to Studer. Then, we will compare it to a A730.

Just noticed the C541 is the same laser/drive and similar chipset as the "Shigaclone" LA9240, LC78621ED & LA6541;
while the C541i uses CXA2581 (RF amp), CXD3017Q (DSP) BA6392FP (focus + motor drive) and I presume a sony laser

Doesn't "i" usually mean improved?
