    Default Rega replacement feet

    Happy Christmas and New to you all.

    I have been looking at replacing my Rega rubber feet on my P25 and have come across some aluminium feet that use either

    3.2mm sorbothane



    Springs



    ceramic ball bearings



    Alloy, ebony wood and spikes




    as a way of dealing with vibration.

    Does anyone have any experience or views on this?

    Once I have changed the feet I will assemble my modded P25

    Thanks

    Lee

    Rega themselves now have posher looking feet for some models, but in all seriousness, it's mostly cosmetic and the best way to 'hear' your Rega, modded up or not, is probably via their wall bracket or something very similar, as bass quality suffers otherwise.

    I've used the feet with four little coil springs in each and with a massy deck they're effective. With a low mass deck like almost all Regas, if they work at all, they'll 'jitter around' too much I think. The isonoe feet beloved of techie owners tend to shimmy sideways rather than give a vertical bounce and thinking of this latter, maybe a set of Funk 'Bo!ng's' might be worth a look.

    Iím in full agreement with DSJR, the best thing you can do to improve the isolation on Rega turntables is to buy the latest lightweight dedicated wall mount, as I have, that and making sure you play records with the dust cover removed will get the best from any Rega.

    I use the SRM Tech silent base, it decoupled the motor (which makes a massive difference) and as it uses sorbothane domes for the plinth to sit on effectively isolates it from vibration, it sounds great with plenty of bass.

    The Funk Boing feet work very well with Rega.
