Hi. It is great to see you guys discussing my products.
The classic is the more serious piece of kit, weighs a ton and works a treat with each added mod. The acrylic platter was the kicker for me when added to the dual plinths....massive bass improvement.
I am still using the standard sub platter I am ashamed to say, but I am certain it is the way to go from here.
There is an orbit review on a popular auction website and a review of a classic rebuild at 29ordinaryguys http://29ordinaryguysmusicblog.com/2012/08/
The orbit is a bit of fun but still wrings out better performance from the Rega components and punches well above the donors. I liked the "homebrew" comment guys.....I prefer "bespoke"! Polished acrylic, no jagged chipboard or dodgy laminates and a range of clear acrylic covers available.
Thanks again and keep vinyl alive whichever route you take.
