You got one now again then or what ?
I know where there's area planet going for a song loike.
 The one with the three disc platter. cheers
I heard it at the shop on Saturday and Jeff played Led Zep on the highest resolution download against it and the planet fucked it right over. Both through Icon valve pre power amps and gert big monitor audio speakers.
 Nobody in the shop thought the download was better.

The planet used the same Hanging 'O' Ring. i fitted a brand new motor done away with that.

btw is it a white version of the Acos/Rega planet, i prefer those?

That original platter had a slight wave when spinning + crap support for the record. Because the original planet platter has a thicker Bearing shaft the housing has been replaced for a New 33rpm Engineering Derlin lined Housing + one of their Alloy sub platters

However you still have to order the 'Planet' belt which is a smaller diameter than the 'Planar' belt. All in all the 'Planet' plinths were the best made.

Prince Rupert been looking at one of these. £200 seems a lot considering where its sourced from..My cartridge is picking up noise from the new motor as the record comes closer to the centre..

Prince Rupert always like Simplicity & good sound for the really early Rega decks, but not the cheapness of the parts and certainly not the arms.. lucky there has been a lot of excellent made after market parts which allows you to make up a good quality no fuss deck. fit a good arm & your away, well nearly. Every single Rega 'Planar' i have had suffers from picking up hum from the motors as the record travels closer to the centre.. This can be cured in a couple of ways & lastly when buying a standard replacement motor ffks do not use that two sided foam pad they supply to replace the 'O' ring & plate. devise a new way of mounting the motor, its not brain surgery. Logic used the best way back in the 80's with the 'Tempo' Turntable. 

Im not just saying this & i hate to use this term, Changing the arm to the Mayware was truly night & day for me..

People dont believe in arm designs being different in sound.. Im a big fan of Unipivots, I believe that no bearings are the best bearing & certainly reflect on the open mid range the Mayware has.. They are obviously out of fashion bein a low mass arm but fashion is bull shite, anyway it uses a sliding mass ring so lower compliance cartridges can be used. But again im an high compliance light tracking fan. Ive had the ADC Blocks tracking pefectly at 0.75 of a gramme
