I acquired a new toy yesterday. A Merrill modified AR The Turntable with walnut veneered plinth (the only retailed finish). The subchassis has been replaced with a George Merrill acrylic subchassis, and Vinyl Nirvana supplied a new vinyl pulley and armboard for a Rega argm. It currently is sporting a Rega (Moth) Variant of an RB-300 with Cardas wiring, tags, and adjustable VTA. It also has new upgraded springs from Vinyl Nirvana. It has the stock aluminum platter assembly, and I just ordered a new belt and AQ Wildcat tonearm cable. This table, IMHO, is a good looking piece of kit. I’ll be running it with a Rega Exact2 MM cart into the phono section of my Parasound HINT Integrated to start. Why? Because I already have them on hand. I’ll look at maybe a Lounge LCR or Rega Fono MM or MC Mk2 later, after this cart at least. The previous owner mentioned he also has the George Merrill acrylic platter, record weight and rim weight for sale separately. Are there any AR fans here who can say if that is a worthwhile improvement over say a Funk Achromat 2? Also, this platter assembly rings like a bell. I was thinking of adding some Dynamat to the bottom in an even pattern to dampen it? Worthwhile? Bad move? Just the ticket? This is my first non-Rega and first suspended table. Any and all help is always appreciated. *Edit: I was told by the seller that the arm was a Rega/Moth RB-202, but when I was cleaning everything up I discovered it’s actually a Rega RB-300 with Cardas rewiring and tags terminated to a 5-pin Din plug.
