Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Item: Custom Rega Based Turntable, AudioMods Tonearm, IsoDrive
Location: Tasmania
Price: $3500 Price Drop $3350 & $50 for shipping Australia Wide.
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: New Project/Build
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

 

This is a complete custom build from the ground up based on a Rega P series design. Raw cost of materials and items was over $6000.

 

  • Plynth milled from single block of billet alloy on CNC router (around 15kg) Finished in red automotive paint Followed same dimmensions as a Rega P3 plynth.
  • 5x Maglev feet (tried with 3, 4 and 5 configurations and 5 was the best)
  • IsoKinetic IsoDrive Power Supply with 33/45 speed selection
  • IsoKinetic 25mm Acrylic Platter
  • IsoKinetic IsoSub Groovetracer Machined Subplatter
  • IsoKinetic Phosphor Bronze Bearing Sleeve
  • IsoKinetic Ruby Bearing + Spindle Oil (lifetime supply left in bottle)
  • IsoKinetic Puck/Stabiliser
  • IsoKinetic Red Thing Silicone Belt + Spare New One in Packet
  • IsoKinetic MTB-D Motor Thrust Bearing + Motor Isolation Mod for Premotec Motor
  • Premotec 50hz Synchronous Motor
  • Audiomods Series 4 Tonearm with Series 5 bearing, lift and arm hold. Full VTA Adjustment - no VTA adjuster.  All original weights and headshell weights/spacers included to adjust to any cart.
  • Custom Acrylic Dust Cover to accomodate arm height
  • No cart included, but I did have an Ortofon MC25e on it and it was stunning.

 

*I have covered the hole bottom left corner where a power button would have gone if I didnt use the motor PSU with a samurai silver coin from WA mint. So the turntable is dubbed The Samurai.

 

For interstate buyers, it will be professionally crated and foam lined for shipping with tonearm back in original transport box. Shipping Australia wide with insurance around $50, will need your postcode to confirm.

 

For those that want to know where to from here - my next build will be in the similar vein...but using the MK6 Audiomods tonearm for primary, 200mm monster delrin platter,  ceramic bearing sleeve, larger billet plynth with 2 armboards for future arm addition and external motor and controller.

Thanks!

 

I would say more like RP10 in terms of subplatter/bearing/motor/platter performance but with the audiomods arm exceeding ANY stock rega arm.

 

Also, after comparing a stock RP10 in my system - I am just not sold on the foam/magnesium low mass sandwhich plinth. 

 

A light tap on the exposed right front corner and listening to noise transmitted through the arm compared to the heavy weight billet plinth is vastly different and much higher in the frequency bracket.

 

I have played around with composites previously as I love carbon fibre... we made a foam core sandwich with carbon which was super light weight and super strong, but just didnt work for a plynth. Ended up making great kitchen splashbacks though :)

      Some of the very finest around.
       
      "Frankly, there’s nothing to fault ...  The Audience cable seemingly does it all; it is convincingly superior in every sonic criterion ...  if you want a no-compromise USB cable, look no further."

      http://audience-av.com/au24-se-cable-reviews/
       
      For context, the Au24se USB is virtually 2nd best Audience USB, after FrontRow (no SX model).
       
      The AES also comes in SX and FrontRow at US$1200 and US$1700 respectively.
