I would like to thank Paul Sheehan of England for sending me pictures of his system with the following simple upgrades:

Standard stainless steel pulley, silicone belt and motor thrust bearing

Rega Planar 3
Ortofon 2M Red cartridge

A&R Cambridge A60E amplifier (built in 1981 !)

Mortdaunt Short Pagent 2 speakers, fitted with small spikes,
connected using QED79 strand speaker cable

And here is Paul's feedback:

" I have been using the turntable for a couple of days now and I'm pleased with the way it sounds.......

The sound is very open and detailed, and I can also hear a very quick response when percussion occurs.

The stereo separation is so excellent. The deck itself is silent when running."

Thank you, Paul!
