platters sold for the Rega turntables are lighter than the stock glass platter.
I pay a premium for the raw material because I use oversize blanks . No-one else does this so I feel it is very important to mention.
I am also asked on occasion by potential customers how it compares to the weight of the glass platter.
I fully understand, and I believe that it's a good thing giving information to the customers. I also understand that some of the aftermarket platters are lighter than the original and that it may not be a good idea.
I was just wondering if it's a point in having the acryl or delrin platter exactly the same weight as the original or if heavier is better.
Looks really nice on your P5!!
Not sure if I like the looks of the frostet acryl better.
Then again, looks ain't all, the sound is the primary goal
