Ok, starting the 'mod' process.....
Mod One: last weekend placed my German Audio cones under the table to find a much noticeable improvement in clarity. Last night, removed the stock, rubber Rega feet to allow better placement of the cones, two up front, one in back.
Mod Two: dusted the turntable off. The soundstage opened up widely unlike before, and bass slam like never before (hey I'm kidding here..but did dust it off)
Mod Three: I have ordered a new belt. I am the second owner of the TT and have owned for close to five yrs. So a new belt cannot hurt. Decided to order the Rega white belt just for fun.
Mod Four: Need to place order for GT sub-plat and platter..
Will use several records as my test records to include: Joni Mitchell Blue, John Klemmer Touch (a mobile fidelity pressing) Dave Grusin Discovered Again (direct to disc) and maybe Steely Dan's Goucho album.
Rest of system includes: Meridian 201 Mk1 Pre-amp, Meridian 205 mono block amps, the P25, all sitting on a five tier Sound Organisation stand. Speakers ATC SCM 7's sitting on Mission Stance speakers stands.. PS Audio Quintet for AC conditioning. IC's Harmonic Tech Pro-Sil III mk 1's. and lamely, cheapo, spooled Monster Cable speaker wire. I sold the HT Pro 9 bi-wire some time ago-need to find a reasonable replacement)
