  1. And how does it sound? Well the difference between this and the layered timber plinth I used to use is definitely there. Resonance has been removed. So essentially all you hear is what’s on the record grooves. Better focus and micro dynamics, cleaner and more natural sounding. Instruments appear more properly into space - front to back, side to side and also height. Pretty impressive. Total project cost just over $220, all sources from bunnings.
  2. Well I did this exercise. Used formply for outer and because I couldn’t get cutting boards I used cork floor tiles stacked and cut to size and taped up with paint blue masking tape. Did a few layers and yes you’re right the resin leaked everywhere. Was a messy job. Anyway molds removed easily enough. Then I added the outer timber for additional strength, glued to the sides using liquid nails. Painted the top with piano gloss black spray paint. Here’s what it looks like.
  3. Thanks Steve I’ll measure tonight

  7. Replacement of output stage transistors with TIP32c, replace phono stage op amp with LM833 and you have a very nice sounding amp indeed with more power and better dynamics.
  8. Thank you @Warren Jones I can see the DIY audio posts and will hopefully start making my mold over weekend. I’ll use formply for outer and try cork tiles for the cutout parts.
  9. Very interesting indeed. I’ve been looking at how molds were done at DIY audio. Looks feasible. Did you drill holes for the mounting bolts. Was that difficult. Or does the TT sit on top of the plinth unfastened.
  10. That’s a good idea I’ll do some research
  11. Found! Thank you @Grizzly much appreciated
