I just purchased new a VPI Classic 3. Upon opening the box and removing the platter the aluminum thin disc that sits in the inset on the bottom fell off. I could either leave it off because I'm not are what function is serves or glue it back. Thoughts?
I called VPI and the plate's primary purpose is extra dampening. Mike wasn't there but they offered to replace the platter, or I could leave it off or put on a couple dabs of construction glue and put it back. I'm going to leave it off for now.
