RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
IMO, a most interesting comparison would be LP12 Tranquility with Armageddon or Lingo vs LP12 Radikal without Tranquility.

RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
What a great idea, in the words or the late Mr Dury "there ain't half been some clever bar-stewards"!!
I've always been a bit fascinated with the way opposing magnets behave, this "idea" would appear that it just has to "work"

Are we thinking that the improvement will be that dramatic?

The main difference between Radikal and Lingo is not higher accuracy but lower noise.
The Tranquility is supposed to do subtracting noise.

OK. Who's going to be first in trying one?

I would have thought (hoped) Peter S might have had a listen.

I have Big GrinCool Earlier this week as it happens but have not been able to post about it due to lack of free time...Just one of those weeks where one get's lunch at 16:30 (today). Not that I'm complaining... I just was hungry!

Anyway, I'm still listening between client appointments but I have a feeling this will be Tiger Paw's most successful product to date!

I can understand that reducing the load on the main bearing would have an effect.... But just not this much! Such a neat idea and neat solution. Congratulations to Roger @ Tiger Paw.

More info when I get time, sorry but an installation awaits this evening.

I'd be interested is seeing some pictures of how the plate fixes to the bearing and what keeps both plates from falling off.

RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
very interesting product - idea behind it immediately makes sense...

just one question: the lower assembly is sitting around the bearing housing but mounted on the top plate?! otherwise magnetic field would have a hard time passing through the top plate. but in this case only the upper assembly on the inner platter is on the "bouncing side", the lower assembly is fixed?!? correct or is there some misunderstanding from my side?

AFAIK, there must NOT be a connection to the top plate but a connection to the bearing and sub chassis only.

RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
OK guys, I have one fitted to my deck and I will be posting a very long and detailed review of this unit. It has literally changed the landscape here. Be patient I am still writing up the document itself.

RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
So you still have the top plate sitting between the two magnetic plates. The magnetic plates appear to be larger than the hole in the top plate so I'm not sure how the top plate reacts to the magnetic force.
