@ferrariYour post is severely misinformed, there was a transposed
First above posters replies are severely misinformed.
price initially read the thread prior to making an
off the cuff statement.
I'm glad someone else revived this thread. Up the thread, I wrote to Mozart: "Machining down the diameter of the idler would reduce platter speed." Xactaudio seemed to disagree with me. I am always ready and willing to learn if I made an error in abstract reasoning, which is entirely possible. I still think, all other things being equal, that an idler wheel of smaller diameter compared to original would cause the platter to travel a shorter distance for every revolution of the idler wheel. Hence, the platter speed would be reduced unless idler wheel rotational speed were to be increased accordingly with the reduction in its diameter. Am I wrong? If so, I still cannot see it.
