    I have been very lucky in getting 1 of Petes Acrylic platters.
    Pete was kind enough to let me try his and said if I like it I can then buy it.
    I’m not the greatest in sharing thoughts on how the improvements sound but I would like to say Yes this has made quite a big difference to my ears. Don't get me wrong, It sounded excellent before and I love watching the gold weights spinning around but I do like to try improving things further.

    The music playback seems to have all been pulled together and tightened. The bass was great before but now it seems very solid.
    I did have to adjust the speed slightly but thats nothing.

    In the next few months I will trial a few different mats. I have a cork/Nitrile, Plain cork and a leather mat to try. I’ll also try Petes recommendation of a rubber mat.

    I just want to say a big thank you Pete! I’m very very happy with my new Gyrodec and I look forward to trying out some of your Pylons in the future.

    Heres a few pics with the platter in place.

    Hi Nathan thanks for the kind words, it was the last B grade i had, now they are bloody expensive, as i dont make them i just managed to get the B grade to let go , so now they are all A grade direct from TP , that one i was using , and have nicked one for my self on monday last week , Just hope Charlie does not knock on the door for his money i use an ORACLE GROOVE ISOLATOR The original special compound rubber mat it is sorbothane , sticks to the platter , i have a anniversary mat , but not the beer mat version , mr moon has the gold spot and he has the same sme arm a 309 , ,sorry you had to fight with the packing LOL better safe than sorry ,

    please note over the pylons , the following , please check the distance from the center of the small post to the center of the other 2 , they should be equal but to stop these being made i think they are 2 mm out on one point , i know how to do these , if they are 2mm out but please let me know before they are sent , so i can work Michell's new design which twists the springs out of shape, pete

    Deck looks fabulous. I'm pleased the platter is doing the business...I'm using the Anniversary Ringmat, which just seems to work on my deck..have fun playing with other mats, but I have a feeling you will like myself, keep going back to the Ringmat..atb...Alan..

    Thanks Alan,
    Yes it’s a good mat. Do you use the clamp with yours? On the ring mat sleeve they say don’t use it but to be honest I can hear any different with it on or off.

    I did buy a Michell clamp from Peter...but I find the Anniversary mat is better without it....

    Hi Alan and nuff , i wish i could take pictures that good, i have poor eyesight , and could not take a decent picture if i tried, i will retry the ring mat i have , hope the platters are working well , still no mk2 , and never will be , as the weight on the bearing may have been too much
    enjoy the music

    Hi all please note all the Michell upgrades are made BY Truepoint Audio and not by me, also the pylons use o rings similar to SME, AVID , AND GERT PEDERSON and not Cotton,
