Acrylic platter (model APLT) - USD130.00


This anti-resonance acrylic platter is suitable as a replacement for the original glass/wooden platter for all models of Rega turntables ( P1, P2, P3, P3-24, P5, P25 TT's ...). Nominal dimensions are 11.5" diameter and 23mm thickness. Its mass is concentrated on the outer and lower portions of the platter, thus provides stability in the circular movement, enhancing sonic performance.

Other than suitable for Rega turntables, this acrylic platter could also be used on other models of turntables e.g Thorens, Lenco, Pro-ject etc.

Thiago of Brazil commented :
"Sonically speaking, it seems to have opened a little more my system, without compromising its bass response. It's still too soon, my I guess I'll enjoy this upgrade."

Jan Landgraff of Copenhagen commented :
"Hi Michael,

Yes, the Rega is up and running, and what a difference! I installed all the items at once, Sub platter, twin pulley, silicone belts and the acrylic platter. 

The sonic improvements as I can hear it are: better timing, more "space" around the instruments, deeper and more solid bass. The start up time is instant, and the stability of the speed is much better. So thank you Michael, for revitalizing my old Rega, now considering what upgrade to go for the next time. 

Best regards

Receive the goods and the improvements are amazing. The next thing I'am looking at is the bracing top and bottom and a record clamp/weight.

Endrik of Manila commented :
Michael, just wanna let you know that I received the acrylic platter from Leslie last week. Build quality is excellent and I'm not using any mat when playing records. It's as if a veil has been removed from my speakers. 
Thank you so much and cheers!

Hi Michael, 
The platter arrived on Monday, much sooner than expected, and I have been away for a few days so have only just been able to try it this weekend. When I opened the package I was immediately impressed with the finish and quality of the product.

I have a RP1 previously updated with white belt, rewired RB202 tone arm and Ortofon Super OM 30 cartridge. My first impressions are the sound (previously slightly bright) is now more even with fuller tighter base and clear, detailed treble.

Best regards,
Stuart


The Star newspapers - Review on the acrylic platter for Rega turntables:
"The sonic changes from the substitute platter took no effort to discern. The baked and pressured sawdust-glue original platter of the P2 couldn't match the bigger acoustics, denser image with more specifics outlined, firmer bass (with less of the chesty upper bass emphasis of the original), clearer treble and plain all-round finer detail that the acrylic platter brought out from the P2."

"Even the glass plattered P3-24 was improved on, something an “audiophile wife” who was at Asia Sound with her husband to pick up their new red P3-24 readily agreed with – you should audition these after-market products if you have a Rega turntable below P7 grade.

HiFi unlimited - Review on the acrylic platter for Rega turntables:
"Immediately, upon the drop of stylus on to the LP groove, I noticed lower LP surface noise. LP hiss is almost eliminated too. But best of all, I heard less high mid sibilance so prominent on glass platter ed Regas. The acrylic platter also tidied up what ever so slightly splashy high hats and cymbals on drum tracks. The mids are now more solid with good body density, great focus and definition, solidly anchoring the singer(vocal) to the ground. Bass is more articulate and tightened. The acrylic platter up grade lifts the hifi performance perimeters of my Rega P25, while manages to keep it's best virtues of the signature musical flow and tempo."

Hi-Fi Avenue - Review on the acrylic platter
"I had been comparing Michael Lim's vinyl platter with the stock Rega glass platter on my modded Rega Planar 3 and I noted that the vinyl platter delivered a steadier pace and rhythm. This is due to the fly-wheel effect of the vinyl platter since it is thicker at its rim. "

How about VTA. I have the Rega Planar 3 with Ortofon 2M Blue which is 18 mm vs app 14-14,5 mm for rega cartridges. With regards

Hi Christian,

if you are using the stock wool mat which is 3.5mm thick, you may need a 1.9mm or 2mm spacer if you are using the stock glass platter.
