Respectfully, the GT ref sub platter is the second best upgrade. A motor isolation system is the best upgrade. Lim or other, just make an incredible improvement.


I actually contacted SRM Tech about their silent base and read the online post of someone in Montréal who did it. It is definitely something to do in the future. Thank you.

Hi,

Another angle. Rega dealers don't stress this anymore but in the original Rega literature regarding set-up they strongly suggested getting a wall-mounted TT shelf for their products. This reduces vibrational feed-back and other spurious associated live frequency resonances that can afflict any good arm. Good isolation feet will help but wall mounting a shelf for non-suspended chassis TT's is better.

Cheers,
David Neice


I considered this from the get go. I invested on a Bello Audio Tower before I even purchased my equipment. I don't like the idea of drilling holes on my wall.

I also had my brother cut me a 3/4" MDF that he painted gloss black like my table and I have them on vibrapod cones underneath the TT. A lot cheaper than buying a premade isolation platform.

Have you considered any type of VTA adjustment.
You mentioned earlier you were using an achromat from Funk Firm.
Just wondered how you compensated for the difference in tracking angle?

I didn't adjust the VTA.

I changed the stock felt mat with a 3mm achromat.

Thank you to all of you who replied.

Much appreciated.

I will defer on the subplatter upgrade for now since data is still very scarce regarding new Regas and subplatter upgrades. My research continues.

I will go hunt myself down a set of new speakers in the meantime.

I forgot to mention, I have the GT ref sub platter on my highly modded rp6. It does make a nice improvemnt, mostly in speed stability and background noise reduction. Def worth doing imho.
