Promotional package

Promotional package for upgrading your Planar 2, Planar 3 and P25

- 1 pc  Aluminum sub-platter model ALSP1

- 1 pc Standard 33.3/45 stainless steel pulley 

- 1 pc Special matching belt 

 All three items for USD175.00

The aluminium sub-platter is machined from high quality aluminium with polished hardened steel spindle to improve coefficient of friction and wear property.

The stainless steel pulley offers an excellent upgrade over stock plastic pulley of many of the Planar 2, Planar 3 or P25. And coupled with a matching special belt you get better speed stability and hence, improved pitch stability.

The stainless pulley is machined to match the aluminium sub-platter supplied to less than about 0.7% speed deviation.

Optional :

For many older models of Planar 2 and Planar 3 with motors suspended on rubber band you may want to add a motor thrust bearing for smoother motor run. Add another USD10.00 with the above special package for the motor thrust bearing.

Try it out !

Hearing is believing!

Robert's RP3 Upgrades with New Ply Plinth

Robert's RP3 has got a New Ply Plinth together with other upgrades. Please read on to find out more:

Thanks Michael 

Once I get a TT-PSU then a double pulley system will be going onboard too. I added your components to a stiffer ply plinth simultaneously- sound difference is profound. I have just upgraded phono stages in a big way and the difference is on par with that. (New phonostage is 6 X the cost of the original unit I was using). 

I listened the the 'upgrades' with my older original phonostage so as not to blur the perception. 

Upgrades carried out at once: 
•PEEK bearing sleeve 
•Silicon Carbide bearing 
•Your sub- platter 
•Your platter 
•You isolated power supply and motor assembly 
•New ply plinth 
•Adjustable spiked feet 

Differences form the original RP3 are very easy to identify, no intensive listening needs: 
•Much more air around the instruments 
•Decay of musical notes more evident and high frequency extension vastly improved 
•As a result of the above points, instruments are more 'isolated' 
•Lower noise floor 
•Slight improvement in stage width but my speaker location and room are the biggest hindrance here 
•Bass is tighter and less bloated 

I still have to spin many records to hear the tonal differences but thought I'd share my initial findings. 

Next in line is an IQ3 cart and pure silver arm rewire. Then back to the new phono stage. 

I had a listen to your mat as well. Awesome thing, such an improvement on the Rega felt mat. I however enjoy the 'airiness' of the Ringmat. 

Thanks for the great support and service. 


Thanks Robert!

Robi ( Singapore) - RP3 upgrades

Robi of Singapore has added two new upgrades to his Rega RP3 - the acrylic platform and the rubber cork mat.

Simple upgrades. No tedious installation involved. How's his new experience with these upgrades?

"Sound quality...melting my ears!" 

Hi Michael, 

I managed to get myself a nice rega rp3 with ttpsu. 

I will begin my journey with this turntable and your rega upgrade components. 

The attached picture shown the turntable with acrylic platform and cork rubber mat i get from you. 

Sound quality...melting my ears😘.

Gert’s Tonearm Stabiliser and other mods

Gert's (of Netherland) feedback for tonearm stabiliser and dual pulley mod : 

Hi Michael 

Two weeks ago I received and installed the double pulley together with your silicone belts and your tonearm stabilizer. 

Removing the original stock pulley was very easy indeed with the pulley puller and following your instructions. 

The results now in terms of sound improvement are very positive and beyond my expectations. 

The soundstage is wider and deeper. More surprisingly the sound character has much more openness and color. Last but least the deck runs now stable at 33.3 and somewhat. 

The influence of the tonearm stabilizer on the sound is more difficult to estimate, I think. I always had a difficulty to held the stock lightweight hex nut in place, given that it must be fastened finger or hand tight. It always had the tendency to loosen and remove from its sweet spot position. Very annoying. I supposed that your stabilizer would solve that problem, given its substantial weight. And that is just what it does. It’s a real find. 

Best regards, 

Thanks Gert!
