I will update after it arrives.Besides the regular VPI clamp, I also have a very nice heavy center weight.I plan not to use the clamp as others with the periphery ring have advised in the past.

You are going to love owning a periphery ring. Sure it's an extra step, but when you see how steadily your cartridge rides the grooves you'll know it's the right thing to do!

Ordered one of Wayne's outer rings on the same day as Gene. Noticed on AudioGon Wayne was offering a reduced price and made a reasonable offer. Arrived this AM. Beautifully packaged, Beautifully machined. The amazing thing is what a difference the outer ring makes. Tried it first with one of my old discs, Bolling and Rampal, Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano. Can't remember it ever sounding better. Also believe the extra weight on the periphery helps stabilize rotational speed, another plus.

Looking forward to hearing Gene's comments.

Arrived and it is really beautiful. I haven't had the chance to test it and compare it yet as things have been really busy the last few days. I did slip it on quickly using the guide plate and played one side of an lp which sounded really nice but did not play back without the ring. I hope to find some time shortly to give it a good run. I was swapping out tubes the other day so I will place everything back to my normal setup and this will help me judge better was it the ring or the tubes creating the sound difference. I can say is it extremely well built and and packaged. My offer of 500 plus shipping seems like it was a steal.

Gene, since I received mine, I've been playing a ton of vinyl. To my ears, I've been blown away. I've been really happy with my system all along, but vinyl just seems to have made the leap to extraordinary. I often rely on the girl friend who is not a hifi junkie but has terrific ears and enjoys much of the same music as I do to bring some objectivity into listening. She definitely seconds the motion. Enjoy your new toy. It adds some work to the process, but it's definitely worth it.
