Rega Sub-platter Upgrade
This Precision made Sub-platter with hi-carbon polished steel spindle is made from hi-grade 6082 high strength alloy. And finished in a super hi-quality anodised satin finish. This fine finish exudes quality and will not corrode or discolour over time. like a plain turned or polished alloy and does not show fingerprints. The Spindle is slightly longer on top than original for record clamps.
- Runout typically within 2 microns or less.
- Spindle shaft typically 1-2 microns of the original bearing.
- The physical platter is exactly the same as the original.
This sub-platter has a unique feature where the 18mm centre collar with red rubber ring can be removed. This allows a non-Rega Main platter to be used. Or perhaps a custom made a platter with just a standard spindle hole.
All Rega Platters have an 18mm centre hole so you’re pretty much stuck with what’s available. With this sub-platter however, it is possible to use a plethora of platters if the surface is level under the platter.
If you have what you believe to be a Rega Based turntable let us know as much info and photos to identify which model you have before purchasing.
We also have sub-platter upgrades for the project Xpression 2/3 & Project Debut in our other listings.
The plastic lightweight sub-platter that came with your turntable listed above though good at its job can be massively improved. Bringing so much more detail and mass to your lightweight turntable.
The bearing that came with your Rega is good quality and easily capable of carrying the extra weight of this new sub-platter.
Upgrading your turntables sub-platter or bearing is one of the best and easiest upgrades you can do. Remove your old sub-platter and ball bearing. Clean out your bearing and drop the ball bearing back into it. Add around 6 drops of oil on the spindle of the new sub-platter before replacing. Be sure not to force, just put it in gently turning it and let it gently self lower. A little oil may come up to the top of the bearing but this is normal.
