I have done this replacment Inspire plinth on my Rega p7, and am very pleased with the result.
Its easy to do if you are handy with a few tools, and if you have a problem Robert is always at the end of the phone...........
Cheers not bad with tools, time served apprentice. Although spend my time programming robots
for a living now, so less tools, but triumph herald in garage to keep tools busy.

New sub-platter is expensive Andy, so as a very good stop gap I can recomend the 'SRM Sub-Platter damping kit'. I have used it to good effect, its consits of 12 orange like sections to fit in the plastic segmented SP. Easy to fit, cheap and very effective, I found a little fine tuning helped, I removed two oposing sections, tuned up the base nicley, also tried removing 4 sections, preferd 2.
Tracked it down on the Bay: 'SRM Sub-Patter damping kit' . . . item number: 330943096695
At £15 it is worth it.
Cheers just bought one, god its too easy to spend money these days

Well sometimes you do
There is a damping kit for the standard plastic SP, that works OK'sh, if you remove 2 or 4 sections, cant for the life of me remeber the name of the supplier, its was £15 from the 'Bay' a good investment at the price, but the full metal SP is the best way but much more expensive.
I found under slung arm counter ballances worked well too.

Thats the one DIB . . . works suprisingly well if you 'tune' it.
Well that was a nice simple job to do, hardest part was finding my soldering
Well was it worth it……
Big yes, everything sounds better all round.
Soundstage vastly improved, clarity much better. Everything’s clearer

Looks great, I found exactly the same improvment, with my quest upgrade. better clarity and soundstage.
What was the finish that you chose, mine was zebrano to match my zebrano SA1s.............
Walnut to match stand and speakers
Can't believe how much better it sounds
Next the speakers
The single biggest improvement/modification you could make that has repeatedly been proven to be successful regardless of other factors is fluid damping. There are technically no downsides to it I know of as it really cuts down on unwanted vibrations and pushes the ones left outside of the most harmful range.
Whether the resulting more neutral or less coloured (some may perhaps call it 'boring') sound is to your taste is another question but that it works is undisputable whether done as Townshend does on the headshell or the Paris, Well Tempered etc does on the arm. The measurements are there.
Pretty ... and pretty proud of it
