No relay, but there is a limit switch right by the capacitors and adjacent to the motor. The bottom of the sled has a "feature" which hits the switch at end of travel. I have a hard time believing that it will not spin up unless that switch is open. (Mine immediately parks in such an instance.) How about the door switch? Loose connection? Something else going on?

I don't know. My experimentations are that the wires are good, the connections are good too, and the set works fine when put as original.

I did not check the voltage though. I will try that in the next few days. Thanks for the support!

Pendergast, from looking at your photos (nice work!) it seems to me that you are losing much of the advantage of the inertia of all that mass by continuing to use the green compliant couplings. If you mounted the transport rigidly, wouldn't the vibrations of the rotating disc and mechanism be reduced through being directly coupled to a lot of weight? You could then put some sort of compliant suspension under the whole heavy box. I may be wrong - but I think it could be well worth trying.

I will certainly experiment from your suggestions! Thank you!

Strikes me that there might be an EMI issue here, try grounding the mechanism chassis when you do this.. (Negative side of supply)

Other thought is ribbon is open in extended position due to handling. Works in one position and not other. This same issue got me into a lot of trouble with the mpu board I ultimately blew up.. (Sordid saga several hundred messages back in this very thread... )

The effect of suspension will depend on frame weight, material, supporting platform and the exact type of springs being used. Only in such context one can compare one type of suspention to the other.

I spent great lenghts of time experimenting with various types of transport mounting and the end result is still compromized, taking into account practicality and visual appearance.

The choice of spring suspension was solely based on my subjective listening tests and not design decisions of Madrigal or 47Labs
Based mostly from information collected in this thread here is my take on suspension. Peter's 'suggested' frame built of copper and bronze. 5/16" socket head capscrews mounted underneath the frame and pointing down. These ride inside a small piece of rubber hose which rides inside the springs mentioned earlier in this thread. These are temporarily seated in a 1" MDF base in which I drilled 1" seats for the springs. In the second picture you can see a set of Nordost Pulsar Points that I had laying around that I decide to use. When I get around to it I intend to build a Wadia look-a-like case for this transport out of MDF. I'm thinking of painting it black and intergrating 1" doweling into each corner for the authentic look and a place to mount the Pulsar Points.

Regards,
Dan

I know money doesnt come into concideration when you ar doing something you love but they must stand you a complete fortune and not just in monetry terms, man hours alone must run into the thousands, i wouldnt be surprised at tens of thousands.
a work of art none the less congrats
Thanks
The xXx speakers were approx. 20.000 euros on material and 2500 hours to build.....mind you the original Avalon states somewhere to 140.000 euro in the Netherlands.
And I changed a lot more to my liking..

Clearaudio I have paid you today ...looking forward!!
