So, the table does not come with a record weight but instead, Techdas sells 2 after market ones called "disc stabiliser II" made of high grade Aluminum and "disc stabiliser Ultimate" made of tungsten presumably some sort of Tungsten alloy for eye watering money.

I seek advice and insight from fellow enthusiasts. Any experience with these ? Any recommendations for any other record weight ?

So far, I have experimented with no name record weight probably made of alumium, 0.5kg copper record weight, 1.0kg record weight but all to the detriment of the sound.

Thanks.

The TechDAS disc stabiliser is no good, the tungsten ultimate is very good and very expensive. I have tried them all.

After trying a lot of different weights, I designed and manufactured my own. It is better than anything in the market at a fraction of the price.


It was posted in Hong Kong HiFi forum and I have made over 40 pieces. If you want to have one please send me a personal message.
