I have chance of buy turntale rega planer 3 with nagaoka boron mc11 cartrige. Has any experience of cartrige with these planer 3? I cannot find any thing on these nagoaka(?) on internet. Sory for my english quality :)
Thank for help
:att'n: Also, I buy these rega for disassembly and use of rb300 for diy turntale, maybe he in form of suspend plynt?
I'm not familiar with the artridge, but the Rega 3 is a decent table. I'd be cautious putting it in a suspended plinth. The arm can benefit some from mods.
These teflon counterweight subs do a good job.
Re: Planer 3
small light and rigid shelf attached to a solid wall. Its possible
to convert to a suspended design but you really need to know
what you are doing, you will also destroy the value of the
turntable in the process.
Better to start with a suspended design and modify that.
The Nagaoka MP11 Boron is an upgrade derivative of the once
popular MP11 cartridge. From what I remember the compliance
of the Boron is a little high. The standard MP11 has a rich sound
as is quite sensitive to capacitive loading. A new Boron stylus
(the boron refers to the boron cantilever) is not cheap.
Thanks you both for input, I aware of value of original planer but is fairly cheap secon hand model.:) I find difficulty to get stylus for boron on internet - an ideas??
You can use the standard MP11 stylus, :) sreten.
please, tell me more about these counterweights. Are those commercially available or DIY?
May I use this picture on my website? I would like to write below that picture where it is taken from.
I have a planar 3 and I realllyyy like it. Be sure to hear it first before you do anything to it. I have a Garrot cartdridge on it.
What do you mean with suspended design? Any pictures on the net of this? I currently use a TNT style diy rack.
I have been given the task of selling these on the internet (and to distribute to dealers). Production numbers will be small for now, and i haven't got firm pricing yet -- but they will be competitively priced with other offerings, i'm expecting a bit less -- at least at 1st. Packaging will be simple as the docs (at 1st) may be sketchy). I actually have the 2 counterweights in the picture.
Yes you can use the picture.... please just attach my email to them (i'll email the right one) for inquiries. I am currently developing a bew web site to promote these, and a few other diy bits projects the local community is working on (ie wooden phase plugs -- i have the 1st batch of prototypr RS 40-1197/Fostex FE103 plugs sitting on my coffee table)
I'm not sure what you mean by a suspended plinth, I was
referring to a suspended subchassis design, you do have
to know what you are doing for these.
Regarding the counterweight mods :
They make a lot more sense with the RB250 than the RB300
fitted to a Planar 3. As the RB300 steel counterweight stem
and Tungsten weight is much better and more expensive than
the plastic / steel combination of the RB250 and that the
Planar 3 is second-hand you'll find value for money is poor.
I'd leave the Planar 3 pretty much stock and investigate
building an advanced support for it.
There was once a very groovy German kit to upgrade the Planar
3 to effectively a Roksan clone, this could be worth investigating.
