Hi Turbon,

I am going to use the reflektor's in my build, i was waiting for the groupbuy.
In the build thread there are some mods recommended, i am also still investigating.

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/power...-d-builds.html

It starts getting interesting from page 25 and up ;-)

I am going to use 4 5V reflektors and for the 8V i am going to use a teddy pardo ruperreg.

Transformer, bridge, big filter capacitor in external box, regulators in cd box.

regards,
John.

Isn't that neutron star a thing of beauty!!!

how is the sound of the soekris dac different from the buffalo? and is it a balanced design?

i am still using a buffalo 32s, its maybe time for an upgrade.

Regards,
John

I am so happy to see builds on wooden boards - still haven't been able to build a good box for my shiga mk2 - so every picture relieves me from having bad feelings over my lazyiness

Hi Tibi,
I got the problem on CD reading.
After listening music a hour, I changed a disc (after then I changed several discs), the Shiga started to be enable to read disc.
I press the button for Cd door, it started to read, but the display flashed `--` and then shows `00`
I have recorded the lens movement on following YouTube link:
https://youtu.be/gH6xASdzDCg
Normally what is that problem caurse
Thanks

This is a ribbon cable problem. Please check your ribbon cable to be properly inserted and use the contact spray I recommended in this thread. Also several disconnect connect may damage ribbon cable.

Regards,
Tibi

When I say ribbon cable I refer to flex cable between optic and main unit. This may generate a lot of trouble if not proper inserted, or was damaged due too many connect/disconnect.

Regards,
Tibi

Making latest improvements before Shiga becomes rested in its case. For clarification with the SPDIF Resistors, to buy the correct Z-Foil ones

R48 = 300R
R49 = 100R

Righty right?

Cheers
Fabian
