Garnet of Calgary, Canada has recently added some of my upgrades to his RP6. He is very happy with the sonic improvement. Here's his feedbacks : 


WOW!

Part 1 : Dual pulley, adjustable aluminium feet and acrylic platform upgrades:


hello michael.... 

i just installed my double pulley system,the new feet and the acrylic base

The installation when smooth and HOLY COW what an improvement..bass mids and high end really came alive ...i am also using a delrin ceramic platter and a groove tracer sub platter and new counterweight...but i think the double belt system from you really bring my turntable into a another class...no more a mere rega rp6 now this is REGZILLA....can not thank you enough.....

Part 2 : Acrylic Plinth, top and bottom bracings and motor isolation base :

hi michael...

got my parts today and i installed them...

the acrylic plinth upgrade was almost too easy to install ...plus it sure helped the sound and looks ..lots of audiophiles in Calgary are more than impressed with my new turntable and i expect they will follow and do the same thing to their  Regas....

WOW what a upgrade...the only thing i had to do is to replace the 2 round head machine screws with flat head machine screws on the top of the plith holding down the bracing that is because the delrin plater sits so low it was rubbing on the screws..... now that i am finished i will send you some photos in the near future.....thank you very much.....

ps  having the motor housing sure did make a big change



Thanks Garnet !

Hi, this is more of a comment to Michael. Some time ago in a personal email I had suggested this: What if he offered a complete table "kit" including everything you would need to build a new from the ground up Rega "style" turntable without having to purchase a Rega table? I know the arms are a bargain when you purchase them with a table, and perhaps one could sell the table without tonearm to help with the purchase of the kit.

So what's needed? Here's a list:
[*]motor, pulley and isolation base;
[*]tonearm and tonearm weight;
[*]sub-platter and platter including platter bearing;
[*]plinth, arm brace and feet;
[*]speed controller/power supply if required

As the motors are quite common (even substitutions could be made for a favoured brand such as Crouzet). I suspect that the single largest expense night be the plinth (the shipping of the plinth might push the costs of all the shipping, else the shipping company may provide a discount) but that could be made locally from whatever material one might want (metal, acrylic, wood or any combination).

Perhaps Michael would consider a "package price"? (,of course I'd push for that ;)).
