Kjell 's RP6 Upgrades ....

Kjell  from Norway is another Rega RP6 TT owner who chooses to upgrade to dual pulley and silicones. He is happy with this simple upgrade. Here's his joyful experience.



After having the belts settle for about 5 days (busy week) it was finally time for a listening session. First impressions are that the build quality is superb! The instructions received on email beforehand is simple and straight-forward, so the installation on my modified* RP6 were hassle-free. Start-up time is much faster now, I would say its cut down by a half at least! 

So how does it sound, and is it worth it? Yes, absolutely and the sound is in short, more defined! 

The bass is tighter, and more accurate on all levels..stronger and more controlled and adds that extra punch! This cleans up the overall soundstage and the musical experience is more dynamic and lifelike I would say! 

So far I am very impressed by the dual pulley setup w. silicone belts and service is exceptional as well! 

Thank you very much!

Marko has a P5 TT. He has chosen to begin with the aluminium sub-platter and stainless steel dual pulley upgrades. No doubt P5 is fitted with a metal pulley (aluminium). But somehow stainless steel pulley outperforms the stock aluminium pulley. If dual pulley is used to replace the stock pulley, the result is even better!

Let's take a look at how Marko of Seattle shows his step by step procedure to do the upgrades: 

Hello Michael.

I completed the install tonight I am delighted. Although I know that the bearing may benefit from wearing in, the impact of the upgrades is immediately obvious. 

Before  the upgrades: 

I took photos of the entire process (pulley and subplatter) and will organize them and get them to you. I am not a poster so I’d rather just email or upload them to you. 

i) Pulley installtion :

ii) Aluminium sub-platter installation : 

The subplatter was very hard to descend. I almost called you. I ultimately got it down several millimeters by spinning it backwards but couldn’t get it to go down further until I put the glass platter on top, which got it down the rest of the way. 

I was surprised at how much larger your belts are compared with Rega’s. I moved the pulley to its maximum out position and there’s still significantly less tension than with the Rega belts, but I am guessing that this is on purpose and you’ve found that less tension is better. I have not experimented with tension as you describe below. Perhaps another day. 

Now I am just enjoying the more open sound. Imaging is improved, bass richness is increased, and midtones are more present and lively. 

Thanks for making this an easy and high value upgrade. I hope you’ll find the photos to be a nice resource for your customers. 


Thanks, Marko!

Alan's RP6 - Adjustable Feet upgrade

Stock Rega RP6 TT comes with aluminium feet. But it's non-adjustable. So if you have problem getting your TT sitting level on the rack, take a look at my adjustable aluminium feet. It may solve your problem.

Here is Alan's (of Fort Lee, New Jersey) adjustable feet upgrade :

Dear Michael, 

Hooray, the adjustable feet arrived today. A mere 30 days since you shipped them( so much for air mail). Surgery is complete. The patient is fully recovered and up and about. 

Finally my RP6 is truly level, no more washer as shims. 

Thank you so much. See picture below. 


Best regards from the US, 
Alan de Vrie

Thanks Alan!
