Ordered the VPI Super Platter upgrade for the Scout turntable just as soon as it became available. It was shipped without an appropriate spacer for the spindle, and without installation instructions. While waiting for VPI to ship a spacer have made do in the interim. The upgrade is worth every penny in terms of great sound, though it's cost does not begin and end with this very heavy and slightly larger platter upgrade. The Gingko Cloud platform the turntable was sitting on before the upgrade had to go. The super platter is so heavy that it set the entire turntable wobbling back and forth on the Cloud to the extent the tonearm was cavitating. Out with the Cloud, in with the VPI Super Feet on a steady platform. Everything now sounding really terriffic. But, the Super Platter really requires better speed stabilization, so, new motor upgrade and the SDS speed controller. The motor upgrade, though advertised as easy, is anything but, for the electrically challenged at least. None the less, everything now sounds bigger, better, well, as good as a better VPI turntable, had I the sense to skip the hot-rodding and step up to an out of the box solution to begin with. Now I have the best sounding Scout on the planet, (isn't that an Aries 3 with upgrades to come.....?) A lesson learned.
