Puck problem sorted . . . ?
The original puck weighted 8.7ozs, reduce the weight, too much mass . . . ? Reduced it to 6.3ozs, helped but I was still not happy. Then it struck me, I have used the broken bell principal in almost all of my hifi hardware . . .
Breakfast over, a revisit to the shed, a hacksaw appropriately applied . . .
Lighter weight and broken bell, the new puck if anything has an even airier sound . . . it certainly does not have the slightly sat on sound of the earlier heavier version. More listening required . . . just to enjoy the music.
