    I cleaned the motor pulleys yesterday, I just turned them on and used some duraglit, then run a cloth to buff up and they now look very shiny.
    Fitted a brand new belt and it's made a difference.
    It's really tightened things up, that slight pitch deviation has gone.
    It seemed easier to fit the belt too.

    It's sounding very fine indeed, I think I will in the not too distant future try a different cartridge, I'm thinking at the moment to get the Hana SL.

    Thinking about trying different feet and removing the baseboard, my previous Voyd. 5 didn't have a base and it was fitted with Michell tenderfeet, don't know if they were ideal to be honest, something to think about.

    Chris that sounds like a VIZ Top Tip.

    Enjoy your Void.

    Hi Chris

    I have removed the baseboard and fitted 25mm sorbothane feet one each corner attached with thin double sided carpet tape, the result is better soundstage definition and more control at the bottom end.

    You could also try these, Mr SJS said that he used inexpensive inverted brass spikes into the plinth and that he found that best:-

    3Set-hifi-28mm-Speaker-Spike-Stand-Amp-Isolation-feet-Base-brass-spikes

    or ebony ones, which has a very good damping properties and is often used for tonearm mounting boards

    HIFI-Ebony-Wood-Speaker-Spike-Isolation-Stand-CD-Amp-Feet-

    I have tried a Hana SL and found it to be extremely good, similar in sound to a Benz Micro Wood S but quieter in the groove, I also tried a Phasemation PP-300 (from Hugo at Ammonite Audio) I have to say that for the 1345 this is a superb cartridge and great VFM, great soundstage and lots of detail and control, and quiet in the groove. Would be worth borrowing Hugo's demo SL. I ended up buying a Benz Micro LP-S from Hendrick at Lyprodukter for an excellent price which is another step up, he offers a money back guarantee if you are not happy, PM me if your interested. The LP-S is superb detailed cartridge, and does not colour the music IMO.

    Let me know how you get on with your isolation experiments.

    Cheers

    Back in the day, I ran my Valdi sans base board and supported by small Michell Tender Feet, I replaced those with brass cones, but I can't recall who made them. However the biggest upgrade was moving from a Target TT wall shelf to a three legged Rata Torlyte turntable floor stand.



    Setting the Valdi on that was transformative regarding the sound. Well worth looking out for one. I sold mine to the same loser I sold my ET2 arm to, who was to sell it back to me, if he was to sell it. Guess what, he didn't.

    My friend John has one those, it's the best support for a voyd, really makes it sing.
