Carlo from Italy had upgraded his P25 TT with almost all my upgrade products. What's the sound improvement ? He described "  "absence of listening fatigue" !

Absence of listening fatigue is important as you would wish to listen to more... truly enjoying the music to the fullest!

Carlo's P25
Dear Micheal, 

First of all I'm sorry for the delay with which I'm sending you my feedback on your changes, but in the meantime I have changed a bit my plans and I preferred to have a clear head before writing you. I'll try to be as brief as possible. 

I bought "all" your upgrades and I built them in part on my main record player (P25) and in part on my self-built turntable, derived from an old P3 with a RB250 arm. 

I wish to thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness, showed while I was waiting to receive the items at issue. 

Thank you, truly! 

Rega P25/RB 600/Exact 
The upgrades are: 
- Michael Lim Aluminium Subplatter 
- Michael Lim Dual 33,3 Stainless Steel Pulley 
- Michael Lim Double Silicon Belt 
- Michael Lim Motor Isolation Base 
- Michael Lim Adjustable Aluminium Feet 
- Michael Lim Top Metal Bracing 
- Michael Lim Stainless Steel Bottom Bracing 







 Previous upgrades: 
- XTC 0,99 Counterweight 
- Tizo Acryl Acrylic Platter 
- Tizo Acryl Record Puck 
- Heed Power Supply 

 Once the upgrades had been built, the turntable became "beautiful". It looks like a higher-price one. And it's something that already puts me in a good mood. All the accessories are perfectly made and they seem "state-of-the-art" built. Really a great start Michael! 

Everything fits perfectly with the Rega and the only item that requires patience is the subplatter: the tolerance is indeed low and it requires time for the subplatter to go into position. Once inserted, the subplatter requires, anyway, a couple of hours of breaking in before being able to spin really "free" and I admit that this fact has caused a little bit of worry! :-) I really don't know how to describe you all the sound improvements that I had. I have this expression in mind that could describe it all: "absence of listening fatigue"! 

I always thought of listening fatigue as that sensation that you feel when you are listening to a low-quality digital player, with acute "drilling" and bad defined sounds. 

In this case it's quite the opposite! Here, the absence of the "listening fatigue" translates into the desire to keep listening to music, without getting tired or wanting to lower the volume. The music "pours" from the loudspeakers in a "light" and natural way. 

The low frequencies are full, imperious but never invasive or inflated. The soundstage is perfect, deep and with a lot of "safe space" between the instruments. The highs are much bright than before, but never strident. 

With a few words it was what I was looking for and I would never have imagined to obtain such an improvement. I am utterly satisfied! 

Best Regards, 
Carlo



Thanks Carlo!

Hi Carlo!
You have an awesome deck!
May I ask you if you had any difficulty aligning the pulley and belts with the sub platter after you installed Michael's Isolation Base? I found that my belts sat too low as the motor needed to be at least 1/8" from the plinth. Any feedback or info would be appreciated!
Cheers!
Joe Borzetta
