    At some point during all these mods the deck probably ceased to be a Rega, and I think you have earned the right to re-name it! You could go for something obvious, like JacDek, or perhaps a more traditional moniker. Personally I like Frank, that was my grandad's name. Or maybe Doris.

    Looks seriously clean, Baz. How's the arm? Always been intrigued by the OL arms.

    I have always liked the OL arms. They have a very musical presentation. I have improved it significantly by replacing the nut with a stabiliser.

    Very nice indeed, keeping it clean would drive me mental, I'm assuming that you are doing the same as me and mounting the motor on the base, but what are you using to isolate the plinth, on mine it uses sorbothane domes.

    A custom cover keeps the dust at bay quite effectively. In terms of isolating the plinth, it sits on eight layers made up of a combination of ceramic pucks, an acrylic sorbathane sandwich, and Audio Serenity speaker pads under good old Ikea Bamboo Butchers Blocks. This combination is derived from decades of trail and error on a tight budget.

    So now with all the bits left over, you can re-construct the old Rega deck as it was originally?

    All these bling changes and the motor for ages was still fed from the very basic Planar 2 120V cap and resistor supply, allowing so much more motor vibration through? Not sure it's still available as Rega went to a 24V motor some time back, but the later fixed 120V motors had a much developed supply board and the motor vibrations were significantly reduced at source. Just sayin'
