  1. Hello - Does anyone have a spare ProJect glass or metal platter that is 8-12mm thick with a centre hole of approx 7mm? It came with a warped ( think ‘mushroom’), warped platter - an inherent fault. I cannot use the Acryl-it because it is too thick. My spindle measures 19mm high x 7mm dia approx, and uses a subplatter similar in laypit to Rega and the Debut Carbons. I am unable to use the Rega glass platters either because rega spindles ( base widens) are different , i believe Am also awaiting a response from Interdyn as to what spares they have but tgoufht i would ask o
  2. I have not installed the 95e yet, that will be installed in a Stanley Engineering Cocobolo wood body which i will do in a few weeks time - as i need to learn how to cut the stylus carefully out of its casing, by watching more youtube videos. However, going back to the 3600L, which i really like, I have been comparing the LP Gear CF3600LE - carbon cantilever with simple ‘cut’ eliptical. This stylus has a fuller midbass, and very good treble extension; whereas the Black diamond has a clearer but somehow less ‘thick’ midband, possibly due to aluminium cantilever. It is a 10-15 sec sty
  3. Btw...based on this thread, I have ordered the Analogis nude ellipticals for the AT3600L and 95e cartridges. Dealing with @cafe latte was a pleasure with excellent service, communication and a very fair price. The styli sound excellent and fit was excellent 👌 Derek
  4. Further information: Brand new, bought few years ago but never installed. Retails A$590 currently. Can upgrade to 2M Black stylus.

  5. @aussievintage @cafe latteQuestion regarding Stanley Engineering wood bodies for AT cartridges Does the AT95e wooden body fit a AT3600L ‘generator’ metal body.? Thanks Derek
  6. @aussievintage....I suspect the wooden body should help tame some vibration and resonances which should allow the stylus and generator to work a bit better... one would think and hope...
  7. AV.... keen to follow your wooden body mod for the AT95e and keen to hear whether the mod ‘transforms’ it. I have the LP Gear CF95SE but unopened because I am running the CF3600LE eliptical on the ubiquituous AT3600L, which is very ‘lively and detailed’ but i cam detect a lack if refinement at the top end. i get to compare it with a Garrott p77i which is not ‘lively’ but very smooth on theand refined on treble. If both aspects can merge.....:)
  8. I actually prefer the AT3600L sound to the VM95C /E, have both. I also ordered the LP gear eliptical upgrade for AT3600L - more natural sounding and less bright compared to VM95e ( unless i didnt ‘run’ it in long enough
  9. Incredible value for money, those 'White' pads from Bunnings, and extremely effective especially with wooden floors and unsuspended turntables. I use them under the (unsuspended) turntable, under the t/table support etc.....
  10. You may also wish to consider a Vincent Pho8... they are superb and affordable and have plenty of rave reviews also
  11. For a new turntable, the Rega Planar 2 would be a good choice. Excellent engineering and great tonearm ‘feel’ and sound. Project tonearms can feel a bit flimsier, but also sound very good. Try the cueing mechanism on both.
  12. Hi there I’d like to be next in line if the deal falls through...:) Derek
  13. Hi All Not sure whether this has been discussed elsewhere, but i testing a bamboo chopping board with Dunlop Yellow dot squash balls x3 I was using an old Mission isoplat ( mdf with sorbothane feet) Initial impression is that its a very different sound with the bamboo plinth support. Mids are forward n pronounced... and i have lost the dark meaty midbass of the mdf plinth setup. I believe the bamboo is not retaining ‘energy’ as much as the mdf hence the cleaner, leaner faster sound. Thoughts? Comments? Derek
