I've been listening for a couple of hours and it's very good indeed.
No problem with any form of interference despite using a low output zyx

Moved on to my tt restoration.

I bought a lenco with old wooden plinth. Ditched the plinth and separated the platter from the top plate. Try doing it with 1 hand.

Put the platter to 1 side.

Moved on to the top plate. Took the motor off, the idler, and all the electronics.

Is it better than the pink. I ain't gotta clue. I've not listened to them simulatanosly. I think it is better, but I wouldn't bet on it. The pink ain't coming back, so I suppose that says it all.

Before it took pride of place, I pissed about with the speed for a week. No matter when I measured it, seconds, minutes, hours and days, it was always the same.

I am used to speed fluctuation, I've owned an origin live controller. So I was anticipating some problems. But its been rock steady.

I settled on a 6mm acrylic mat glued to the metal platter.
