Upgrades Pro-Ject Xpression
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 will and does not show fingerprints. The Spindle is slightly longer on top than original for record clamps.
We have just 15 of these precision-made sub-platters for the Debut etc in silver.

- We also have sub-platter upgrades for
- the project Xpression Series
- and Rega Sub platters
The plastic lightweight sub-platter that came with your turntable listed above though good at its job can be massively improved upon bringing so much more detail and mass to your lightweight turntable. The project platter is considerably larger than the Rega Sub-platters available and the price reflects this.
The Delrin Bearing kit (should you also wish to upgrade) adds further enhancements in the sound reproduction by eliminating more noise. It is more stable having more mass than the standard bearing plus is designed to carry the extra weight of the sub-platter, where the original bearing was not designed for such weight and prone to wear faster than normal. Please consider the bearing upgrade!.
- We have put a considerable amount of time into research.
- These products give astonishing results!
Upgrading your turntables sub-platter or bearing is one of the best and easiest upgrades you can do. Simply remove your old sub-platter and bearing, replace the bearing housing, drop the ball bearing into it and add around 6 drops of oil (and on the spindle) before replacing. Be sure not to force, just push gently, turning and let itself lower (which can take some time). A little oil might come up but this is normal. As Delrin is self-lubricating, not as much oil will be needed over the standard amount.
Renew your oil when changing sub-platters.
- Oil kits also available on our other listings.
- If you have any questions please ask.
- This item will despatch the same day or within 1-2 working days
