Will add a detailed review once I'm accustomed to the change in sound but a little eye candy for now.
One small concern I do have though, if your reading this Gus, is that silicon belt is a lot tighter than the standard Rega belt (although rubber is more pliable so it may be just that). But when first turned on there is a slight grinding noise as the platter sits stationary and then I need to give the platter a spin get it moving, (this occurrence I have found (after panicking a bit) is quite common though with Regas so not an immediate worry) but I hadn’t experienced prior to the install.
Wondering if this excess force pulling on the motor/spindle/pulley may add undo stress to the motor bearings over time, but I’m sure the belt will stretch a bit.
On a positive note I was quite stunned by the much improved clarity with regards to piano, listening to Sergie Rachmaninov’s Suites for 2 Pianos with Güher & Süher Pekinel, Deutsche Grammophon 1981 and Harold Budd’s “The Pearl” 1984, high notes were crystal clear.
I saw elsewhere someone mentioned that there was less bass which I’ve have found is usually a perception when lower notes are tightened up with less bloat and over hang, which in my books is a good thing and was most evident replaying Simple Minds’ “New Gold Dream” and Shriekback’s “Care “ album.
Overall so far without getting into more details, Gus’s sub platter/pulley combo has brought an already descent turntable up quite a few notches.
