Oil change for the Rega !Never done this and have owned it for well over 20 years, and it was second hand then!
Sub platter replaced and the belt ready to be refitted.
Reassembly of the sub platter ( really difficult to persuade into the bearing with the new oil) and replaced the upgraded Rega white belt
This is what I mean about the platter being a tight (airtight) fit in its bearing. Drops down eventually if left To it's own Devices.Apparently it means that the bearing, despite its age, is in good condition.
Job done, time for a test.I don't know if its the placebo effect but I would swear the Rega is sounding better than ever after this minor service procedure!Peter Gabriel So
@Jkp did the platter lower down before the LP was placed on it?
@athairbirb The main disc platter is a centimetre thick glass disc which quite quickly kicks the reluctant sub platter into touch 😄
