Gerret's aluminium feet upgrade

If at this moment, you are not yet ready to tweak the "main body" of your beloved Rega TT, why not just consider the "feet" first? My aluminium feet would be a simple tweak for you to begin with .....

Don't worry, you would not mess up anything with this tweak! And you will notice sonic improvement as Gerret of USA would testify here after his aluminium feet and silicone belt upgrades :


It took me a while to get back to you. I really like the feet and the belt upgrade I received from you. They tightened up the bass a bit at first. That is before I also replaced the plinth. I found that Joel at takes apart Rega's and resells the plinths he doesn't need. He makes some beautiful turntables that are more art pieces than audio gear. 

Using the better plinth gave a further advancement. I found that the get further enhanced and I feel like I just moved the turntable to 2013. 

Here is what happened to my Rega Planar 2 thus far: 

Michael Lim belt upgrade 
- Michael Lim feet upgrade 
- Replaced sub platter with aluminum one 
- Replaced tonearm stub with metal one - same design thought - upgrade potential? 
- Replaced AC motor with DC 24 V upgrade 
- Replaced platter mat with Mission mat 

Next I am looking at the double pulley and belt upgrade. I am a little scared of pulling off the existing metal pulley. I saw your tool to get this done. Is it tricky? I'd need the double pulley, the pulley remover and one more belt. Let me know your thoughts. 

I included the pictures from both the pre-and post plinth operation. Thanks for you blog, inspiration and great products.

Rafe Arnott of Vancouver, BC Canada has a RP1 earlier which was upgraded with dual pulley:
Voila! A nice, neat solution... for Rega RP1

A happy customer who believes in the stainless steel dual pulley upgrade, he would not forget to add this upgrade to his RP6 too. Let's hear what he says :


I hope you and your family are doing well! And yes, I'm enjoying much more analog music on my RP6, especially with your dual 33 1/3 rpm 50Hz pulley :) 

Here is a picture of my setup: 

Your dual pulley has made a world of difference, the change across the frequency spectrum – going from one belt to dual Rega white belts – especially in the midrange and bass was not subtle – and I have recommended the upgrade to everyone I know who uses a Rega TT. 

I find my RP6 has grip and authority in the lower registers (that it did not possess previously) much more akin to an RP8 now.

Thanks Rafe!
