I'm going to have to get one on loan to find out for myself it seems. Was hoping to spend £400 on a RCM.

I honestly believe that you'll be convinced after only 5 minutes of use, the HR PSU is really that good. Please let us know when you try one out.

What advantages, if any, does the HR PSU have versus something a Falcon PSU + Roadrunner tachometer combination?

One will work, the other won't.

Is this assuming you have a DC motor?

Is the Falcon PSU really compatible with any of the GyroDec motors?

If it's an older AC motor, yes; it's not compatible with DC motors, Michell or otherwise. You might have to use the Eagle, which is designed for higher wattage motors.

Once installed would I still need to measure the speed of the Gyro with a strobe disk etc or will the HR automatically play at 33/45?

You'll need to measure. The HR doesn't know what the motor is doing.

So the HR does not have any feedback capabilities, ie know when the motor is slowing/speeding
up?

No. The HR is just a stable supply.

Mind, friction-induced speed variation is low on a Gyro, because its DC motor has a fairly low coil resistance.

No. I have an Orbe, and then I have something half-DIY which resembles a Gyro SE, with a Maxon motor and a supply of my own design.

Hmm....things not right with the Never Connected website:

Didn't pay their bills, maybe?

Werner,
That is a fabulous deck. I want one! It gets rid of the annoying coil spring eccentric mount.
I can't get mine to bounce 'right' but it will do until I have more time. I can't stop playing records. It has also prevented more with/without HR listening tests.
