I would be very carefull about 'upgrading' your Aries 1 with the lighter platter and periphery ring. There are many that do not consider this an upgrade at all. The sound is considerably lighter, which gives the impression of more detail, but you lose dynamics and bass. It is a matter of personnel taste, of course, but I do not care as much for the new design. Do you have the Mk5 platter and bearing?
