MAN! Now your tweakin'! I love this stuff Can you give us a link for Tower that shows the silicone dampning solutions?
The Tufoil website has a bunch of diff. treatments. That on do you use, engine, motorcycle?My bearing is not completely sealed on the bottom. While it doesn't drip anything I did set the plinth on a pillow and it left a red stain. Will the Tufoil leak out? What are the thoughts on the Mark3 vs the scout platter as an upgrade?
Chairguy, I just found the manual for my HW-19 jr. They said in it they used Molybdenum sulfite grease in the well.Will the Tufoil/slick 50 be OK to use as a substitute? I have never change the grease in it - bad me.JPV
The Music Hall MMF-9, with added speed controller, would seem (on paper, at least) to be the near equal of it in superior belt drive configuration...but at close $2000.00 new. It's got an inverted ceramic main bearing, heavy platter, de-coupled 50Hz motor and a heavy platter with a carbon fibre arm. It's $1700 with hi output Goldring cartridge mounted and aligned already on it - outboard speed control is another couple hundred. The VPI Scout is probably a close second to that one in value - but outboard speed control is $1000.00 for it. They may well be better than the Technics...but only with speed control.
Again, I think the difference is speed control...without it (VPI), the vitality and drive of the music is lost - it just kinda' plods along in comparison. With it (the JVC and it's direct drive and FG Servo motor...with good isolation), the notes and music just leap out at you and small adjustments to platter mat, VTA, damping, vinyl quality are more noticeable.
