Responses from wires

Tri-Planar grounding question...

Turntable interconnects.

Pentagon PS 3 phono preamp settings help
I have a copy of the DIP switch setting for the Pentagon PS-3. What would you like to know or would you want me to copy it and mail it to you. 
RB300 binding in horizontal movement
I believe the problem is with the anti-skate. On the RB 300 a magnet is used for this purpose, amd I have seen many Regas have this problem. Most people believe it's the rewiring job, but it's the magnet in the post of the arm and in the slide whe... 
VPI Scoutmaster - Rubber Washer
If you are using the screw down clamp (as well as the periphery ring) then you still should use thye washer. The dishing is caused only at the center of the record being pushed downward. I hope this makes sense.

Pass Labs X150 or Pass Labs X250

turntable upgrade VPI or CLEARAUDIO?

help hot-wiring RB300

Cables with VPI Scout
