Has anyone heard this Micro Seiki Tribute package?

There was an older thread where @shakti had compared only the Dereneville Tribute motor to the original Micro Seiki motor, using original Micro Seiki turntables, and felt it was an improvement.

Looking for someone who owns or has heard this complete package. Things I’m curious about are:

1. Quietness of the Pabst motor

2. Ringing of the brass platter and what difference the optional SS platter makes

3. Quietness of the bearing for someone coming from air bearing

4. How it compares with original RX-5000 or 8000 series I

5. Which TechDAS would it compare with best (AF5, AF5P, AF3, AF3P)
