Thank you Steve,
With this belt drive and both the platter and tonearm supported on the same spring- supported sub-chassis, how best to prevent the tonearm from constantly trying to jump due to the underlying spring?
If the "pink" is inserted between the rigid top plate/top surface of the turntable and the sub-chassis can this prevent trampoline jumping in transit? Is the platter packed separately so it doesn't add mass to the sub-chassis during shipping?
Also, the clear attached plastic dustcover cannot be removed according to an acquaintance who could not put the cover back on once it was removed. so best to leave attached. (When record being played, the dust cover is temporarily way up out of the way for better sound.)
Sorry that there are more questions, but ignorance is not audio bliss.
