Balblair 89......does it for me...

After a nice full tumbler of that brew I want to play a cd on my own Goldmund Reference Turntable at the right.....but after sobering up I see that it is still MDF....





BTW my 132 kg pre-amp is on the left so I gave it away..

WOW some serious slabs of acrylic....

Could you define what it did to your sound when you placed the Shigaclone on top of it...

Thanks...

I've built that rack quite some time ago, so posting any impressions now could be misleading. What I remeber though, ML31.5 sounded better on that rack that sitting on air suspension platform, placed directly on concrete floor. That rack was built with ML gear in mind:

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...015#post604015

As to Shigaclone, the rack probably provided similar improvement as adding screw on clamp on CD transport, but the result was probably rather subtle. The most improvements I got with springs and copper/bronze chassis.

Hi there!
I tried te make my shigaclone. But failed. I did evrything you all did, but the 8V won,t go to the spindledrive. On both drives I got 3,65, on both poles. The 8V is going to the HWCap IC, but it comes out with 3.65V. Is the HWcap out of function, or is there something else I forgot? Thanks allready for the answer, Grtz Teake

Ok, I have read all the 78 pages, I have sourced a 51, and now I need just the other few parts for modding.

I live in Switzerland, and that is a DIY parts wasteland!

Does anyone have a set of parts and would be willing to ship to me?

Thanks!

Wasteland?

In the period of globalization? Just order parts from Hongkong...

Seriously:

Do you know Pusterla in Zürich?

And Distrelec?

And Conrad in Dietlikon?

Kind regards
Franz

@Franz:

I know all of the mentioned, but: try to find the LM7808... (yes, you can get 10 of them on ebay ... from Hongkong )

and where do you get Blackgates in Switzerland?
If you know a source, please tell me, thanks

Sorry, did not want to sidetrack the thread...

Today I worked on my transport again...this time I finished the birch-lead platform for my transformers...

I also finished the ebony legs (a lot of sanding..) and made a first connection with aluminum...for later on the birch plateau to rest on...
