John Gallup of California USA has recently upgraded his Rega Turntable with acrylic plinth and bronze bearing hub. Here's his feedback and beautiful pictures of his new TT : 



Michael,

The plinth, bearing and braces arrived today in good order. I was pleased to find that you had already assembled almost everything, which made the installation a snap, requiring only a few screwdrivers. Everything lined up properly and fit well. I'm already using your motor base, adjustable feet, and motor pulley.

I put on a record I always play after I've modified the system ("Selections from the Gutter," by Art Hodes, Storyville SLP 4057) and was delighted to hear stronger bass and less wow and flutter. I'm not sure why this should be the case but it is very enjoyable. Your plinth is of course heavier than the stock Rega RP-3, and as I understand it Rega's philosophy is to make the plinth as light as possible. Whatever the reason, your plinth and bearing work well and I'm very glad to add them to my system.

Some photos are attached.





As always, it's a pleasure doing business with you.

Regards,
John Gallup
