    Or just keep one motor with duel pully and the Rega PS. Or the Rega motor with, duel pulley and Phoenix PS and Tach.

    I am probably going to get a Michael Lim acrylic plinth. I will keep my multi stack. My thinking is Vertere uses acrylic. I will keep my tripple stack. I may mount the arm on the second sheet between the top holding the bearing and bottom holding the motor. I wonder what to call my table at that point.

      Phoenix shut down about 14 months ago so finding a Falcon PS and Roadrunner tach is nigh on impossible now.

        Double pulley and two belts! Everyone who has ever taken their second belt of the P9 /Rp10 has said the same thing: The sound took a Hit...

          I'm not sure what you're trying to say. Is a double pulley good or bad?

            I'm pretty sure he said it was a good thing.

              Well, I bought a 3/4" slab of acrylic to make my plinth. Since my setup is already a tipple stack, I am going to mount an arm board on the center sheet so the arm is separate from the plinth and motor. Since the arm I am using is a Vertere, I should call the whole project a Rexere.

                Well, there is not much of the Rega left. After upgrading my digital setup, I understood how poor the analog really was in my system. There was a little shout and a lot of mid range bloat in the play. I will admit, a good portion may have been due to the Denon 103R with Midal aluminum head shell. Maybe not. That cartridge is at the Sound Smith. I asked he asses if first. Maybe I will see it again, maybe not. I hear some Denon are just ok, and others quite good. If the motor does not perform well I may toss it.

                Anyhow, I decided the arm on my TT is Vertere. They make an all acrylic TT for this arm, so why shouldn't I. I purchased a 3/4" sheet of acrylic and went to work. Then stopped work as I realized I had the wrong tools. You just cant drill a strait hole with a hand tool. I tried one of those guides that is suppose to keep you vertical. Did not work. Then I took it to a friends house with a drill press. He said his tool was accurate. Maybe it was, but it was not tuned. The holes came out tilted. Then I bought my own drill press. Of course the quill was flopping all around in the guide but the bearings were good. I had to drill out the head of my new/used drill press, tap the holes and insert nylon bolts. Now the quill is dead solid in the guide. Next I had to use a pretty high end square to make sure the drill was strait to the table. Last night I put the last holes into the acrylic to finish it off. The extra holes are from my first tries. Maybe they are good. They might reduce resonances.

                If you notice, there are 4 small holes around the tone arm. I still intend to cut out the rectangle that holds the arm and mount it to the acrylic plate that the TT stands on. That would put the motor on the bottom of 3, the tone arm on the 2nd of 3, and the platter on the third of 3. Actually, the motor is going to end up on its own piece of 6"x4"x1" steel base. I will cut out the Corian base and put the steel base on the stand to isolate the motor sound even further. What I have done so far did a lot to isolate the motor noise. I get why Rega mounts the motor on the plinth for ease of use. However it sure transmits a lot of sound to the needle when mounted there. It just goes right into the plinth, up the bearing, through the record and it the needle. It is just so much more quiet with the motor mounted remote.

                I don't have a cartridge yet. Maybe Solypsa will bring a Sensitive Sound by. It sounds like an interesting cartridge. I should have the Denon back one day with the Ruby cantilever and optimized line contact diamond. That should be a totally different sound.

                That comment just made me think of something. Everyone here is so into purity of the equipment chain. Nothing is suppose to add color, just transmit what is on the medium. Why then would cartridge sound different. I wonder if the heads on tape decks also sound different? Things that make you go Hmmmm.

                Once I get a cartridge I will be able to report on sound and whether it is getting anywhere near what my Digital is capable of. Maybe it will surpass it. I have my fingers crossed.
