Polar opposite mechanical approach of interest that delivers good subjective results also.

A bit OT but I had a VPI Classic and had problems with hum induction from the rather strong 220V motor directly into the cartridge, tested with a number of different phono stages and different cartridges. In the end I went for another TT even though I liked it (beside the clearly audible hum). Also, because the motor runs at 220V the TT ground = safety earth. Not ideal.

Regards
Sven

We had no such problems in our recent test. The phono was the Simplistic MM with SUTs inside the single box for near 60dB gain. The Zyx Bloom H has clear blue hue plastic body and has 0.48mV output. I.e. no shielding. It had no hum with just the output plugs connected so we skipped the dedicated chassis gnd wire. Go figure...

Well guys, i am loving it- R3 mate with Benz Ruby 3H-Turntable Once Analog(Aus made)/Basis Vector 3 arm. Compare to my previous phonostage Herron Audio(tube) the presentations is very different ie more laidback, no noise and so much more details

One more graph, here is the PSU Power Supply Suppression Ratio(PSSR) Near 60dB at 100Mhz

These are the most important/relevant messages regarding PSU and Pre-Reg.
  1. Mpp #4375 PSU-pre-regulator.
  2. Mpp #4610 V2 Schemas UPS and Amp.
  3. Mpp #6506 CCS fine-tuning.
  4. Mpp #6462 PSU with my notes.
  5. Mpp #6809 Do not try to feed the CVS of the CCS of the shunt with a regulated power supply.
  6. Mpp #7127 More about transformer selection.
  7. Mpp #7635 Single and dual transformer wiring (also corrected drawing) (See also #7733).
  8. Mpp #7733 Grounding (PSU, RIAA and Player).
  9. Mpp #7810 35V PSU for the CroMagnon.

  11. Mpp #8386 My resistor recommendationís.
  12. PradiseBuilders #13 Schema's and assembly guide.
  13. PradiseBuilders #155 Vdc input voltage minimum simulated.
  14. PradiseBuilders #970 PSU oscillates; posible solutions?
  15. PradiseBuilders #983 Compensating the PSU for oscillations.
  16. PradiseBuilders #1173 Fixing oscillations (up to #1182).
  17. PradiseBuilders #1322 Fuse .
