RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
Can someone explain why the speed does not need adjusting after fitting? If friction is reduced. For those with an AC motor who adjust speed by motor position. I am sure the TP web site is correct but I can't follow the physics of the speed being the same after fitting as before. I think that is what the website is saying.

Would be interesting to have the numbers for wow/ flutter / through bearing noise etc after fitting.

If claims are true regarding speed then the torque required to maintain platter speed must way exceed that required to overcome bearing friction. Remember the spindle to sleeve is running in full hydrodynamic lubrication. Only the tip runs in boundary conditions. This does not mean that noise reduction claims are untrue.

I wonder if it works best with a Khan? Wink

Hopefully no better than with a Karmen!

RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
The tiger-paw website says:

"...utilizes a unique array of high quality rare earth magnets in a specific arrangement to ensure that the fields are perfectly aligned in order to deliver precisely the amount of force required"

My question is, do these magnets degrade over time and if so what is their lifecycle time before they need replacing or .... ?

I admit it has been a while since I did physics but I seem to remember for "hard" magnetic material, which is initially magnetised in a strong magnetic field, that they may loose 1% in 10 years so that would be negligible?

RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
Richard, as you say the rate of loss is negligible as far as I know. The main thing they don't like is very high temperature but thats not an issue in this context (hopefully!)

Clive, I haven't actually checked that it will fit, but as long as the cut out is similar then it should be fine.

RE: Tiger Paw Tranquility
Hi TPA,

I am sure you are right and very high temperatures probably are in excess of 100 degrees Centigrade so no worries!

Is it something that requires a dealer to fit and can it been easily removed at home for dem comparative purposes?

When will it be available for dem by your dealer network?

Richard

p.s. As you can tell, I am interested.
