Here's his feedback for part 1 upgrades :
Growing up, the Rega Planar 3 was the turntable to have. Well, I finally have one.
Thanks to Michael, who guided me through the restoration and mods, the turntable is now taking pride of place in mt home.
The music it plays is astonishing when compared to my previous digital experience with CDs.
There is an organic feel to it and is never fatiguing despite hours of listening.
Added the third belt today ..much better pitch stability. More weight to the bass and mid range and treble is less splashy. Less shouty the kids also in the mids.
- top bracing
- underslung counterweight
- Ortofon 2M blue
Dr. Wong commented further after part 2 upgrades :
Finally fixed the counterweight, dialled in 1.80 gm and played my favourite test disc Tracy Chapman...and an omg moment rushed over me. The mid range is so transparent and smooth now, without the edginess I used to hear in her voice. The bass digs deeper and yet has more control and weight. Front to back and image stability is miles better....Truly the best so far of all the different mods...I am very happy..thank you very much for all your help and guidance.
