Model RC-ST : USD45.00
Weight : ~392g ( ~13.8 oz)
Height : ~31mm (~1-7/32")
Diameter : ~ 63.5mm (~2-1/2")
Spindle hole depth: ~25mm (~ 1")
As we know disc stabilizers come in many forms and shapes in addition to different materials. And for this disc stabiliser, other than the weight (lower section) is of stainless steel, the handle is made of light weight alloy. It's designed so to reduce the weight in the inner segment which would improve the moment of inertia when the platter turns, without adding unnecessary extra burden to the main bearing.
It is able to accommodate top spindle height of up to 25mm(~1") and will not damage the stylus in the event that the cartridge knock against the stabilizer weight when the needle runs over the record label.

Sean of California has just completed his new Rega project.
Beautiful, isn't it?
It's almost a completely new TT now with all the upgrades:
- stainless steel dual pulley
- aluminium sub-platter
- acrylic platter
- bronze bearing hub
- tonearm stabilizer
- motor isolation base
- acrylic isolation platform
- braced acrylic plinth and Audiomods tonearm.
Here's Sean's feedback :
I was finally able to get the table together. I was waiting on the custom arm. Everything worked except the VTA adjuster but that's going on my other table. Audiomods included their VTA system for free.
It looks great and sounds fantastic. The "Rega sound" is still there but it's much more like an P9 and P10 than a P3 due to the massive improvement in accuracy and dynamics. Also that instant start up is quite amazing and speed is spot-on.

Add some colour to your TT with this acrylic upgrade!

|VTA adjuster |
Model : VTA-HN-3-point
The new VTA-adjuster (as you can see from the picture above) is for the 3-point mount series of tonearms i.e RB101/RB251/RB301/
Besides, I have also designed the VTA adjuster to retrofit the existing 25mm(1") diameter tonearm mounting hole for RP3/P3-24/RP6 turntables. Hope it would be a good and easy upgrade for you and your beloved TT's.
Here's the installation sample on RP3 with RB303 :
