  1. I have 2 turntables cos I have 2 setups, a 'better' one (Gyrodec with Graham 1.5c unipivot, Hana SL) in my music room, and a 'not so good' one (CEC ST930 with Grace 707 unipivot, Nagaoka MP300). Am actually in the process of setting up a 3rd system, so if any bros here thinking of selling one of their turntables, I'll be all ears!!! ben
  2. So, every once in a while I will get the urge to tweak my Gyrodec. Recently I felt the itch again. So after some reading, I decided to upgrade the suspension springs, as well as add some lubricant to the bearing oil and Papst AC motor. Although I love my Gyrodec, I've always had less love for the suspension springs - they're fiddly to adjust at best and I can never the the bounce perfectly right. There are several upgrade options out there - I know of at least three. Two of them replaces the springs with O-rings, but I opted for this option by a company called Solidair, which replaces the springs with ebony spacers that effectively hang the subchassis on waxed thread! No particular reason why I chose them except I am more familiar with the use of ebony in musical instruments, and I have my doubts about the long term reliability of O-rings. So the Solidair pylons arrived yesterday, and I quickly fitted them, and it was a simple 10 minute affair - there's no more bounce. Just have to level the table, position the motor housing such that it it not in contact with the subchassis, and it's good to go! Then I also added 2 drops of ZX1 oil to the bearing assembly and 1 drop to the AC motor, then replaced everything back. How does it sound? Everything's still there - the detail, soundstaging, PRaT, etc, but everything just flows more naturally, more 'cheng', more musical! Sharing some photos here...hope they work this time!
