    Default My Garrard 301 journey... almost there.



    Ok guys, so I have made my decision on a power supply. After some discussion with Jaap at Hanze I took the plunge on a Hanze Hifi HAT CPS-2 regenerator. Jaap is very knowledgeable when it comes to all things idler so I put my faith in them for a fully frequency and voltage adjustable power supply in order to tweak the best from the TT. Jaap has recommended I remove the brake magnet fully out of the way or even better the whole eddy disc to minimise vibrations and get the motor running silently.
    It was a touch more expensive than the LDA ,Nigels,CTC etc so I asked why. Hereís what he said

    ďI have seen and measured some of them we only use the best expensive parts ,no cheap digital oscillator or XR2206 ic all converting a square signal to sinus.
    It Can drive about 90 VA motor continuous without getting warm .
    Our version is clean and stable but I know there is a price difference you must decide for yourself.
    Picture is from the variable speed unit, standard version without it. With our powersupply you can lower the output voltage on the front panel with the knob torque ,
    De oscillator is analog most important for a very clean and stable output signal with very low distorsion .
    The driver stage is with a 180 watt class d amp who drives the transformer better then a discrete poweramp with lower distorsion ď.

    Personally I much prefer the looks of this one aswell too. Really love that vintage analogue vibe. And he also assured me that on Garrard and lenco the improvement is quite dramatic so I look forward to adding this to the new rig.

    You've done the right thing in taking your time. I think you'll appreciate your hard work and you can sit back knowing that you'll probably not need to do anything to your 301 EVER again!!!! Karl, which project are your asking about?

    Default My Garrard 301 journey... almost there.

    So with the plinth only a couple of weeks away now I thought Iíd better put together a new rack that can fit all of my equipment on as my current Atacama one is a shelf short for my box count so the preamp is stacked on top of the CD player ,which is not ideal.

    Whilst contemplating how to go about it all I was lucky enough to walk into a charity shop and find a hardwood table , built in the good old days so rock solid and sturdy. This meant that I didnít have to build my own . Result! All I have done is fill and sand it, paint it white, add some support struts in the middle of the shelves to take the weight of the panzer plinth without bowing , and I made individual isolation platforms for each piece . Iím just waiting on the isolation spikes to arrive for the bottom of the rack and all of the little platforms . I have also made a larger 500x400 hardwood platform for the plinth to sit on in the middle.

    Not too bad so far and it gives an idea of how it will look once Iíve installed all of the spikes. Grand total of $180 Australian /about £90 for everything and a Saturday of my isolation time which kept me well entertained . Ive saved myself a small fortune as something like this would be eye-wateringly expensive from a retail store.

    Cheers

    Karl

    Thanks buddy. So am I. Feels like a lifetime ago since I started this project.
