For what it's worth, my dealer tested the speed on it. Dead nuts accurate, and solid as a rock. No wavering or hunting.
You got it, Anthony. The subplatter is aluminum, and beautifully machined. The bearing is also totally understand Rega-like. I really appreciate a company that is willing to leave it's past behind and just keep improving. You really need to see this guy in the flesh to understand the magnitude of the change.That is definitely not your daddy’s Rega. No MDF anywhere on this one; is that cast aluminum for the “plinth”?
Thank you!I'm glad this finally happened and I'm glad this is what you chose. We've had an ongoing "what table to get" discussion offline for months with many options. I'm living a bit vicariously through this one as well, as it's exactly what I want as my "get off the wagon" table, too. I tried that with this table's philosophical polar opposite and ended up hating it in the end (VPI Classic). So, coarse correction someday when I have the coin to do so.
So best of luck! And do keep us informed on its progress. That whole "you ain't gonna kill vibration with mass, you'll just trap it so better to control it and push it out of the audio band" thing that my Harbeths employ is what this is all about. They're among the only audio things I've managed to never want to change...so...
To me, this feels like one of the only different tables out there right now. And one of the ones with the most ingenuity put in it past the early 1980s.
