Hi,
I am going to make a new case for my Shiga MKII. I am very happy with it. It uses the SF-P101N-16 P modded mechanic. But I would like to know if the change of the C8 cap by a Mundorf EVO Silver-Gold OIL 450VDC 0.10F (I have one of this) would be a significant upgrade for my setup. I don't want to change anything. So if C8 upgrade only is a good point: perfect, else I leave as is.

It may have been asked before here, but I did not find it:
How to convert or use the shigaclone 1 and 2 for I2S output?

Lohk,


LC78601 do not have i2s output. The single option is to use an s/pdif to i2s converter like WM8804.
On other hand I have seen bad i2s as well. Using i2s do not guaranty superior performance.
I personally use Shiga MKII high grade level3 with a Soekris r-2r dac trough s/pdif and it sound by far better than a MacBook Pro + Amanero via i2s to same Soekris dac.


Regards,
Tibi

Thanks, Tibi.
Fortunately my Soekris has recently arrived and will try this setup as soon as possible finally myself.

After two years I've finally completed my build. While I've had it playing for nearly a year now, it's great to have the enclosure finished too. Thanks for your help in the beginning stages, Tibi.

Remote control is by an Apple remote with the IR signals decoded by an Arduino Nano. The Arduino outputs are linked to the button PCB through optocouplers.

If possible, can share photos for internal parts arrangement?

Thank you!

It turned out much tighter than I expected, especially around the display and buttons. The mech is held up by bolts through the base. You can just see the arduino under the mech, along with the perfboard I used for the additional circuitry.

I used my 3D printer to make mounting frames for each PCB, that were then glued to the aluminium. As for the aluminium, I had the front made by Front Panel Express, the lid done at my local laser cutting business, and the others cut by hand. The 3D printer also came in handy for the brackets to hold it all together.

Bonus out of focus image of my recently completed Bijou headphone amp. It's in an identically sized enclosure to the Shiga, so they look great side by side (if I say so myself).
