Hi all,
Question for RPM 9 Carbon owners / dealers out-there: the turntable comes with a template for positioning the motor assembly w.r.t the platter to ensure the correct belt tension. Once this is done I'd like to know what is the actual distance between the center of the platter and the center of the pulley. Can't find this info anywhere, seems to be a well kept secret...

Thanks a lot!

Having owned a RPM 9.2 Evolution I have actually measured this but have forgotten (doesn’t help you). Seem to recall a similar question being asked – have a search on the forums

Why the need for this measurement?

I need it to determine position on the rack and to run what-if scenarios (like motor at 9 o'clock or less, how close to the edge, etc...)
I can work my way also if I can find the belt diameter.

Best way would be to visit a few stores in hope they have one installed, but not in this weather... :wink:

Thanks

It’s footprint of 440mm Width including the motor x 325mm Depth if that helps.

I have a rpm 9 it is 54mm from edge of pulley to plater, but the best would be to order a template from manufacturer or place like needle doctor, the minute you move the tt you have to re check.
