Need a Height Measurement on a Prime...

Postby Robes » Mon Nov 06, 2017 8:20 pm

Hi All-

Could someone please check a measurement for me since I have not got my new Prime TT yet? I'm working on building a component rack that will fit under my Prime platform. I want the platter on the Prime to be at a specific height so I need to know the height in inches (at least to the nearest 1/4") of the resting Prime TT from the bottom of it's "STOCK" feet (surface of its platform) to the top most aspect of the "BARE" platter. Inches, cm, mm, or any conventional method of measurement is acceptable. That's a big help, thanks!

Robes,

Just checked one on the floor and it measured 6" from the bottom of the foot to the top of the platter (spindle not included).

Sincerely,
Marc

Prime Signature would be taller. I can give a measurement first thing when I get in tomorrow morning.

6 & 7/8". This would just be the height from the bottom of the foot to the top of the platter (spindle not included)

I would add that you consider a height of about 9 inches instead of 6, in case you decide to use an isolation block under the TT.
I have had good results with this on all my equipment. My new B-stock Prime being the most challenging as you might imagine. My entire system is in an oak rack, so I felt the blocks were a necessity. No regrets so far.
