Distributing Peter Reinders wonderful SolidX turntables… We know the crucial importance of idler wheels. Simone Lucchetti of Audiosilente pushed the concept of idler wheel to a new level.
With Audio Silente idler wheel : you have the certainty of obtaining a fully flat idler wheel… as a lot of Lenco idler wheels are warped. A warped idler wheel induces speed variations that are clearly lowering the level of playback performance from your turntable.
With this idler wheel you will also have 5 O-rings in different rubbers and… diameters. The red O-rings have more grip and will allow the platter to start faster. It will also have a tighter drive, while the black O-rings offer a softer start and tad less drive. With these different O-rings in combination with the Audiosilente idler wheel : you will get to experience some new performances with your turntable.
We cannot live anymore without it.
This version has a 2.45mm shaft which fits with Lenco L70/75 and… of course the beautiful PTP Audio SolidX turntables. The 3.00mm shaft version is also available on request.
- We do strongly recommend to clean the platter and the O-ring with alcohol. Cleaning your platter and idler wheel on a regular basis is in any case not a bad idea…
- Add also drop of synthetic oil in the bearing for the shaft of the idler wheel.
- Last but not least : please also check that the O-ring is not twisted when placed on the idler wheel.
