The chassis and subchassis are already damped. Cables are new as well.

Oh, and Canada is a bit to far for me, think i'll look around in holland for that kind of material.
But thanks for the tip anyway.
My post was an answer to the original post, just shows how
easily it is to quickly confuse things if you jump in sideways.

Regarding your post :

I've never rebuilt a TD160 but something similar.

Your plinth looks fine, does it support the top plate rigidly all
around its edge ? I can't comment on the holes alleged
"stability" effect, but it will sound better with them.

I also think KBK's post is for the original post, not yours.

Suggest you repost as a new post.

Sorry, tried posting my own thread, wasn't allowed.

This thread read "MODS" thought it was for TT mods in general.
thanks for the tip about supporting the top plate all around, will make sure it does soon.
Won't bother this thread anymore.

BTW. original post is more then half a year old!

Thanks for all the great help regarding the mods, as you may have seen the original thread is old but since then I worked alot on this turntable... and finaly noticed I had rebuilt it all....

the only original thing left is the cover, and the little logos.

Still it was a fun experience, and unlike diy-ing a TT from scratch, here I had the chance to listen to all the mods as everything was done gradually

I'll eventualy post pics and descriptions...

Hi there, I have an old CEC BD2000 that plays great. I realzied there are some vibration on the panel board. At louder volume, I can hear rumble from the speakers. is it due to a bad motor?

Is it possible to replace the motor with more modern options?

Overall the player plays great. I use the Shure M97xE needle.

yup exact same TT as a Sansui SR212, i had one a loooong time ago that i inherited from my father. i still have bits of it in my attic. keep an eye on the oil for the motor, there should be a small plastic cotton filled tube that needs lubed now and again.

as for mods i tried a few but never could get the thing to sound right.

Hi All, I have added some Teflon impregnated oil to the 'bushings' and the tube. The vibration completely disappeared! Now I can play it really loud, and music has a lot more details. My aim is to replace the AC motor with a modern DC motor. That will be the next step.

I have also added the same Teflon oil to the spindle. Everything sounds right almost immediately!
