I'll keep the GB open for a while, so people get aware of and subscribe.
I'll also announce here when the GB is going to be closed and after that start to collect money via paypal or bank transfer.

Tibi

Default Shigaclone DAC

Hi, this may be off topic but..

any recommendations for a DIY DAC that is good enough for a Shiga MKII audiofile version?

I would prefer to assemble myself but still want to get the best out of the transport.

Thanks

The builders thread has some replies along the line of DAC's being used you just have to read through them ! Personally I am building a version of Peter Daniels TDA1543 and also plan a tube DAC based on the PCM63A, and have an Ebay Sellarz electronics 9018 USB in the works. I am trying to get info on the Subbu DAC from this site that is well regarded. Good Luck

You mean V3 and V4. For V1 and V2 you need higher current super-regs.
V3 and V4 minireg PCB's are included in standard KIT and in high-grade are mounted.

Hi! (Though of the week)
I would say that all decent dac, even very cheap, is good enough for the best drive of the world, but only the better transports are good for the best dacs...

Sooo many people have bought new amps, speakers, cables, etc, without realizing that what they need is a good transport - the only piece of a system where you can't have compromises, if you want good sound/music.
What people usually expect from an amplifier, they get from the drive. All the rest comes after. That's why I am in this GB. No drive, no music.

I mean, if you don't have a good transport, don't buy an expensive dac, but if you have a good transport, you can buy a cheap decent dac.
If you buy (or make) a very good dac for a very good transport, you're in heaven.

Quantum is a custom made, commercial version of a CD transport based on Shiga MKII.
This is not a DIY product and is addressed to people who look for a top notch CD transport at a decent price.
