Pro-Ject / Rega Subplatter And Bearing Upgrades.

Acoustand Audio are proud to announce the return of the worlds first commercially available Pro-Ject Turntable sub-platter and bearing upgrades.

We have massively upgraded the bearing system of these sets. The Delrin bearings we used to produce although great was not producing the detail we had hoped for, we felt there was more musical detail and nuances that could still be extracted but this would require a different approach completely.

As a result, the new sub platter kits come with a completely solid bronze bearing, yes, they are more expensive than the original but the results far outweigh the extra. And with the rising costs in everything we do, this has also had an impact on the overall price but we hope this is still a fully justifiable product for your pro-ject which elevates it to a all new level.

Please ask if unsure, look underside of your “Main Platter” main platters must be perfectly flat underneath where it sits-on the sub platter, some have a recess that goes over the subplatter and they are fine, however there are some main platters that have the spider type casting and are concave and will not sit level on the sub platter usually found just on the original 1st Debut turntable.

These Sub-platters themselves are precision made from Delrin which we found is superior to the previous aluminium model we made and has even better dynamics and rhythm. Darker quiet periods, and most notably speed stability and improved pitch stability, this was not a cost move, on the contrary, Delrin is more expensive than alloy.

There is no ball bearing now, the new version has a built in PEEK Ceramic thrust pad set inside the new bearing housing, no mess no fuss.

The plastic lightweight sub-platter and bearing that came with your turntable listed above though good at it's job can be massively improved upon bringing so much more detail and mass to your midrange turntable as well as speed stability, and enabling it to produce a sound that equals turntables costing many hundreds more.

We have put a considerable amount of time and research into these products and this will sure to be experienced by you with astonishing results.

We now have the option on the drop down menu of purchasing slight seconds of our subplatters, this may be a very minor ding or scratch but will have no effect on performance but does have a slightly reduced price

If you have any questions please ask.

All orders shipped with oil.

Please select your desired subplatter model type from the drop down menu at the top.

Check out the Review by Oscar Stewart of Sound Perfection Reviews on what he thinks about the new Delrin Sub-platter for the Pro-ject Turntable.
Our sub-platter kits have earned us 5 star rating from HiFi Choice.

As with all Acoustand products, each and every product we build is not mass produced, and is built to order.

This ensures your product is best suited to you and built for (you)

See photos for comparison to your original bearing for identification.

You can check out our YouTube Video of this kit being fitted here:

Fitting, this is a reversal of removal. Reuse the three screws you took out of your original bearing to fit your new bearing. Making sure everything is clean with bearing and spindle, put 6 drops of oil into the bearing and a drop on the spindle and spread oil around the spindle. Place subplatter gently into the bearing and let it lower naturally, do not force. Gently turn it until fully seated.

Place on the belt, fit main platter, job done.
