Hi Mr Lim, 

I have the pleasure to inform you that yesterday I received your parcel containing the pulley that I had ordered. 



After getting it in my hands I immediately appreciated its substantial weight and 'extreme accuracy of the invoice. I easily removed the old plastic pulley (with hands).


To fit the new pulley on the shaft of the motor I used a spray lubricant and the transaction was completed in a very short time and with success. 


After I turned on my system and after an hour I started listening to some of my favorite LP. I was amazed by the excellent positive result. I can safely say that the sound has improved on all parameters and in particular: 

- Greater sense of dynamics with excellent bass control. 
- Greater distinction of sound levels with a scene in clearest detail. 

The consequence of all this has turned into a desire to raise more and more the volume of! 

I highly recommend to all this. 

From now on my Rega Planar 3 has been enriched by a beautiful new story! 

Thank you, 
Alfred



Thanks, Alfred!

Stainless Steel Disc stabilizer


               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")
A stabilizer is used to provide tighter coupling of disc to the turntable. It's even more so for slightly warped records. 

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 had upgraded his P3-24


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 :

Hi Michael. 

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

Thanks again! 

Sean


Thanks Sean!

Peter - My Rega RP3 Acrylic Plinth Upgrade


Add some colour to your TT with this acrylic upgrade!

How about the feel with the result of this upgrade?

Hahaha.......  Peter of Australia will let you know the answer here:

Hi Michael. 

I initially purchased an aluminium sub-platter, to which I fitted 2 Rega White Belts, and an acrylic platter from you about 4 years ago and was very happy with the sound it was producing. 

Recently, I was browsing through your blog and came across pictures of Ralf's braced acrylic plinth (with red top) and adjustable aluminium feet upgrades. 

It was too tempting to ignore! I had to do it to mine too. 

Your well secured package arrived within less than a week to Australia. Other than some initial confusion on my part about the on/off switch no longer being required and the TT-PSU now becoming the on/off switch, everything ran smoothly. 

I have included some before-and-after pictures to show my new look Rega RP3. Not only does it sound sexy…it looks sexy as well!!


This is the “before” shot
Braced acrylic plinth (with red top)
New plinth fitted with the aluminium sub-platter (previously bought from you)
fitted with 2xRega White Belts.
Finished product with new acrylic plinth and adjustable aluminium feet,
acrylic platter (previously bought from you),
SRM/Tech Silicone Platter Mat
and Ortofon 2M Bronze stylus
I think my next step will be to add an acrylic isolation platform. 

Many thanks! 

Regards 
Peter Sherriff 
Ulladulla NSW Australia.




Thanks, Peter!

VTA adjuster
Model : VTA-HN-3-point
USD58.00
Some cartridges, especially MC cartridges, are sensitive to vertical tracking angle (VTA). For more precise tracking, an adjustable VTA is the dream for many. And here is the good news; I have just designed a new VTA adjuster particular to meet this requirement of yours.

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/RB303. With this adjuster, the VTA can be adjusted starting from 1.5mm onwards (with any desirable incremental value) to the correct VTA you require (within the limit). 

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.

So from now on, VTA problems that follow after a cartridge change would not be a headache to you any more.

Here's the installation sample on RP3 with RB303 :
