Default Picture of my shigaclone.

Hi Everyone,

thought I'd post a pic of my Shigaclone. I put the the PSU in the bottom box and have upgraded it so that there are four individual regulators that connect via an amphenol 62GB mil spec multipole connector to the main transport. Overkill, but I needed to fill that bottom box up. The box that houses the transport has a 1 inch copper bottom for a bit of ballast.

Just need to polish the front panels and fit an on/off switch.

It sounds wonderful.

It looks solid.
"It sounds wonderful." is all that matter.
Thank you for feedback.

Regards,
Tibi

Hi Tibi,

I checked the ribbon. On the pcb side, I had tried to push in as deep and still can see about 1mm copper trace. Should I go further? it seems quite tight.

Push as long connector allow you. Make sure it make perfect contact. Use a contact spray if necessary. Another important thing is do not twist this ribbon cable in any way.

Dear Tibi,
Finally a status report from my side. I am using the holiday time to work on the Shiga kit. I am progressing well! Maybe you could help me with a few little issues:
A. I do believe i am missing a few parts, i checked many times, but they are not there.
ADP151
1uF keramic 1206 smd (2 pieces)
IR transmit diode in the remote control
The schematics of the remote control.
I would appreciate if you send these to me.
Thanks all of you for sharing the building info, it helps a lot in getting everything together.
Best regards and i wish all of you a happy 2015,

Paul

Hi Paul,

ADp151 and 1uF caps are part of optional parts. In fact I do not use this in standard or high-grade.
Double check for IR, must be there.
IR schematic is on my website. vicol audio : Shigaclone mkII CD transport

Regards,
Tibi
