Hmmm I might be a little late with the answer i suppose, The cad i use is solidworks and then i render it via Keyshot 5.

I have been far to busy to do anything with the Shiga, it is still sitting on the audiophile piece of mdf.
I do have a lot of boxes with parts and about 30kg of raw aluminium stock.

I am glad to see you made a very goodlooking chassis for the shiga, and also a nice remote housing.

regards,
John

Thank you John, for your replay.
We managed to stay away from commercial software. Therefore, at right time, some Quantum files will be shared with community.
Looking forward to see your final Shiga unit.

Regards,
Tibi

Default Quantum dimensions?

Hello Tibi,
Lots of great pictures of Quantum. Can't wait! But I don't see the dimensions posted anywhere. What's the size? Height from table top to highest spot on top? Width, and length? Thank you.

Default shiga ''le monstre''

Hi folks,
Here you can see fully D-Reflektor-ized Shiga MKII .
It took some time before I could gather all the pieces together , but it was worth . I did not encounter any difficulty , everything I needed can be found in this thread . It is powered by 4 D-Ref for V1-V2-V3-V4 and 2 Ales ''mravlca'' TPS7A4700 low noise LDO regulators for J6 and Burson clock .
2 r-core (9V 30VA)and one toroidal (12V 50VA) transformers.
There is alot of cool staffs used to build D-Refs like Mundorfs caps , Caddock MP930 resistors , Vishay S102 res , Black Gates .
I also changed some capacitors on Shiga board to Black Gates .

The improvement is ... you have music in your room , alot of transparency and spaciousness , very fluid and detailed . Just perfect .Even my wife listening from the kitchen did noted that she hear every detail as if standing in front speakers .

So ,have to say many thanks to Tibi ,thanks for the help and for making this project come true.

Thank you Tibi.

Hi TD ,all changes were made from the basic kit offered by Tibi and made one by one , after careful listening and burnin period go on to another mod .
You can see previous version of my Shiga some pages before and this is same board .
As about the parts used are parts of my favorites that I preferred during DIY audio.
Regards
Nicolae

TD,
Since the EZ shiga times I understood that the most important mod is to separate power supply for each line . Because of this I have not even tried mini regulators from Tibi . From this point of view Tibi created the perfect board, giving the possibility of powering all components separately. And that's the answer,if you want, the biggest improvement is given by separate power supplies with own transformers ,rectifiers,filtering capacitors etc.
Regards
