Mine is stock apart from the leads and a modded arm base plate with right angled gold plated rca adapters so any rca leads can be used. I am thinking of buying a spare arm, so I was going to get the m5g arm which is a bit better, so I will fit that . I have a few headshells most are Zupreme.
I am sure you guys can do much better.

Hi Rocker, thanks for that info on the screws, does anyone know what the actual problem is??

Mike New Bearing, custom platter (!) new feet, internal plinth damping and mods, a solid 20mm aluminium arm mounting plate (I know 'cos I made that) nice record clamp, external power supply and probably some more that I don't know.
....plus about 10mm of solid copper mat
It's on the wrong side of the Atlantic for me to have a listen, but reckoned to sound pretty good.

I'm really not sure what effect adding a lot of weight has on the motor. The direct drive is fairly torquey and, once up to speed, the heavy mass should actually help stability. Maybe one of our Technics experts could give an opinion on that?
