I have the VPI SDS hooked up to my Aries table and used the KAB Speedstrobe to accurately set the SDS to 331/3 and 45. The SDS can be set in very small increments to accurately obtain both speeds.

I agree Shane. Its got me beat why Harry doesn't supply a strobe disc that includes 50Hz markings - at least for export to England/Australia etc. The strobe disc that came with my SDS is the same one supplied 14yrs previously with my TNT - totally useless with 50hz mains.
The KAB strobe is brilliant. Maybe Harry should offer it as an option?
I use my KAB for my Oracle and it's easy as all get out and like the man said peace of mind. I couldn't listen to some solo or duo instrument recordings with out knowing it is dead on. And don't even get me started with chamber Music. I calibrate every six months but most times my Oracle is dead on so it's just a formality.
I went ahead and ordered the Kab Speedstrobe even though I had the strobe disc that was supplied with the SDS. Before the KAB arrived I thought I had my Scoutmaster platter speed set exactly at 33 and 1/3 but the KAB showed that the speed was fast by .07 on the SDS. So I'm glad I ordered the KAB, it's make's speed adjustment more accurate, plus easier and faster to dial in than the strobe disc that came equipped with the SDS.
