"I am in desperate need of a new counter weight for my RP1 with the RB101 tonearm as my upgraded cartridge arrangement means I can no longer get the dust cover on (any sonic improvement would be welcomed also).  I was looking at your underslung counterweight to solve my problem..........." Tristan from Australia first wrote to me.

Would my underslung counterweight would do the trick? Yes, It is almost in line with the tonearm as far as height is concerned. 

Any sonic improvement ?

Here's Tristan's feedback:

Hi Michael. 

Firstly sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have installed the counterweight and all seems to working very well indeed. 

Firstly it's great that I can now get my dust cover on again. 

Secondly I was surprised to find that you counterweight seems to have dropped the floor noise and tightened up the bass just a bit. 

I'm very impressed with the quality of your product and thanks again for the great communication. I have attached some before and after photos.

Thanks once again! 


Thanks Tristan!

P5 upgrades by Alex Hong of Korea

Alex Hong of Seoul, South Korea has just upgraded his P5 with dual pulley, silicone belts and motor isolation base. He is very pleased with the upgrades. Here's his feedback on the beautiful upgraded P5:

Hi Michael, 

I received all the items last Wednesday evening and did some surgeries on my Rega P5. I could do all the modification jobs with no problem following your instructions. 

The change was not small. All noises from the motor has been gone and I can feel the background is now so much quieter than before. I realized that I have been listening music mixed with motor noises so far. 

Now my P5 is dead quiet. The outboard motor base is a real gem! The soundstage becomes much wider and deeper and the sound image from complex orchestral works seems to be even clearer and finer. I 'm sure without hesitation that this is the biggest upgrade among all modifications. 

This is my short impression and I think I have to check more LPs and enjoy with more music. I'm adding some pictures of my rega P5. My hat off to you for all your efforts done so far. 

Thank you again for your suggestions and nice upgrades. 

Best regards, 
Alex Hong from Seoul, Korea
