I would appreciate some advice from members who have owned or currently own the Garrard 401.
1) Does the original idler wheel need upgrading? The one in my unit looks good and does not shown any wear when I run my finger around it.
When I powered it up, it ran smoothly at the speeds and speed was spot on when measured with my Allnic strobescope.
2) Are there significant gains (if any) by upgrading to an after market idler wheel such as Audio Silente or others?
This TT is in such good original condition that I am loath to do any unwarranted modifications.
3) Are there any recommendations for feet for the plinth?
4) Not sure whether it is worth the investment from something like still points. Is there anyone using them on a Garrard?

Item Condition: Used (Vintage)
Reason for selling: Upgrade
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal +3%, COD Only
Extra Info:Bloody good machine for the age, it does what it's supposed to do very well and is most comfortable with older vinyl.....not sure what the cartridge is but I suspect it could be a Shure. The only reason I'm selling is because I have upgraded most of my Stereo gear and the package needed new TT.
For obvious reasons this is a PICK UP only sale.
