A bit of time at home and I'm finally there (except one small touch yet to arrive).
Firstly added a Heed Orbit 2 PSU after another VE member suggested an improvement on the power side of the story. What a simple and wonderful improvement. Jet black back grounds, better transients and more detail extracted than I care to think of with the added bonus of wonderful timing due to this unit. I now have my 45rpm back and even better; at the press of a button, so no more fidly belt changes
Any one looking for a simple improvement to any decent deck ought to give consideration this way.
Had a few problems with a new phono stage in matching the OC9 so went back to my old ways with the trusty (and superb) Project SE. Brilliant move, and to boot the new Rotel (ex Rolleye) has weaved a bit of magic to the PT and the Blue note.
A new dust cover from the Red-One and the deck is there; with the added little touch of a personallised name plate (note the new model title)
Still appreciating the sound with this new baby and I am just so pleased with what I am hearing. For what started life as an old hat TT, the moves forward have been worth every bit of effort and planning.
Oh and I must get some pics posted of the PT1 as it is now wearing a new CF top plate and as I said now linked with a Rotel RQ phono stage sounding very sexy inded.
