Hi all,
Thought I would post a few pics of my system. The VPI is a work in progress and hopefully have it up and running soon. I have got a few items on the way and have had some great suggestions from members on here.

Link to my Hifi journey from the Australian site that I’m on. Stereonet, it’s a great site and worth a look.

Very nice Pops110! Do you still need to use those flywheel thingy, the located 9 ,1 and 5 o'clock position? The cover /plugs for those holes are available from VPI,if they dont have it ,ask vpi the catalog no. and buy it from McMaster & Carr .its around $10 per 100 pieces .VPI use to give them away no charge in the past .

I received the pulleys from Harry and a new set of belts so I could at least give it a try. As others have suggested it appears to sound better without the tri pulley setup so I have removed it now.
I’m not overly fussed on the holes but I do have the cover name plate I have covering one of the holes at the moment. I think it looks pretty good, maybe not to everyone’s taste though.

Harry sent me the pulleys for the tri pulley setup as I was missing these. They also sent belts for this setup.

I have changed the motor over to the 300rpm motor and thought I was getting the HRX pulley with it but wasn’t supplied so I have had some machined locally. Hopefully I pick them up this week. At the moment I have bodied up the existing pulley to get it working.
