To all you turntable builders out there, I would be interested to know how you choose a motor position. For an onboard motor, the options for the motor spindle position would be on a circle around the subplatter. However, the preferred position on this would seem to be as far away as possible from the cartridge when on the inner grooves to minimise any interference problems. However, using this criteria only, this would seem to put the motor at about 11 o clock, toward the back of the plinth. However, this is now moving the motor closer to the arm pivot which may give rise to induced effects on arm wiring. Perhaps the position is not that critical at all, however, I would be interested to hear whether anyone ever considers this, after all, in many new builds, the motor position is free.
