    That looks amasing to my eyes Gaz. Congrats!!

    Some questions from someone planing to have a gyro.
    - Orbe platter, does it take the warmness away. How do you compare it with gyro platter?
    - The small vibration bases under the foot, are they SDS feets? Do they really work, any differences on sound quality?

    And finally for sure you need a black sme arm to complete the Batmobile.. Ups sorry the battable

    Bought the Gyro platter and directly compared them in my setup Neal, as with everything compared it can be a trade off what you gain what you lose, and the Gyro platter did it for me.
    Orbe platter is *better* particularly in the bass, but the Gyro platter in my setup has a "life" about it which i like.
    Different flavours of the same deck I guess, and I'd be fibbing if I said the visual aspect of it never played a part too.

    Before I bought my Oebe platter I asked Michell what difference it made. Answer? Better bass definition.

    When I got it I could only agree. It also sounds smoother and better defined higher up the FR. A standard Gyro platter can spit real fire into music, though. Works well with some music.

    However it looks shite compared to the standard Gyro platter. The thing to do perhaps is swap them round every now and then for a change. I screwed up and sold my Gyro platter for a pittance

    Yo Gaz, sorry to be a party pooper, but I much prefer how the deck looked originally, with the chunky platter, minus the bling!

    For me, it looked more industrial, 'purposeful' and less showy that way, but then I like rather 'sober' looking T/Ts... Anyway, as long as you're happy, that's what counts

    Btw, did I miss the arrival of the 300Bs, and your write-up on those?

    Ah, no worries on the amps, it's just that I saw you'd listed them on your sig....

    As for your T/T, don't worry about me. I just have an aversion for shiny gold on hi-fi equipment. If it sounds better, and you like the looks, then enjoy!

    Arm board upgrade coming soon, expecting good improvements...
    Better cart isolation from chassis vibration should make more of the Technoarm and let me hear more of what my cart can do.

    Taking the opportunity to reoil the bearing with Audo Origami bearing oil, double checking everything is 110% level and get the bounce totally spot on.

    Pics up when she's done.
    All good.
