Pro-ject S/E Upgrade Kit

PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL NOT WORK ON 110V USA MODELS

The S/E Upgrade Kit is an affordable motor upgrade package for selected turntables, designed for historical Pro-Ject owners looking to get more out of their existing system. This simple but intuitive kit, developed specially by Henley Audio, improves motor isolation to the modern standard employed by the latest Pro-Ject turntables. 

The package includes:

2 Rubber Gromits and Screws
Rounded Drive Belt
Alternative Pulley

The rubber gromits are designed to sit underneath the motor, and are secured in place by the supplied screws (using the existing holes in the plinth for the motor transit screws). By tuning the pressure on the gromits with the screws, the result is a dramatic reduction in unwanted vibrations from the motor, causing less resonance in the overall sound performance.

The new pulley is fitted to the motor by removing the existing pully (there may be a small screw holding the existing pulley in place - this needs to be removed), and fixing the new unit in the same position. The rounded belt is placed into position in the same way as the original drive belt. These simple steps help reduce the transfer of any remaining resonances to the record surface.

"Measured against the default sound of the turntable and that of my fix, the new system produces a sound that is practically unmeasurable against the sound of the amp and the room."
- Alan Morris (The Apple Chap)

S/E upgrade kit
Friday, 26 March 2021  | 

I used the S/E upgrade kit on a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon, where I had previously upgraded the sub-platter to the aluminium precision-ground version. The combination makes a very significant reduction in noise from the turntable, once the belt is properly aligned, making it almost completely inaudible. Very satisfying.

A nice upgrade!

Very easy to install, the rumble noise is absolutely lower now, and, with the new rubber band and pulley, the turntable is exactly running at 33.3 rpm, when initially was a little "faster" with the original one.

Perfecto para eliminar las vibraciones del motor

Se puede apreciar claramente como se eliminan las vibraciones del motor poniendo la mano sobre la base del tocadiscos mientras se aprietan los tornillos.

A perfect solution
Wednesday, 22 April 2020  | 

With the old belt and pulley there was still present a low-end rumble, disturbing in silent passages and interfering with the bass frequencies. I suspended the motor to it's own solid block, but it helped only partially.
After installing the upgrade kit all the low-end rumble has gone. The turntable is now much more quiet. The bass is more solid and concrete.
In my case, the upgrade kit was a perfect solution.

Worthwhile upgrade
Sunday, 22 December 2019  | 

I bought this upgrade kit for my decade old Debut III with a purpose to try to combat motor noise on my unit.

This upgrade kit delivers on that regard. Some noise is still audible, but the level of it is considerably lower than what it was before.

I would call this a worthwhile purchase, considering it's only few euros more than a new belt.

However, the belt on my initial kit was faulty, looked like it was about to snap and caused bad wow, so quality control may or may not be an issue.

Analogue Seduction sent me a replacement belt and now we're rocking. So that's a 5/5 for service!

The improvement is there
Wednesday, 16 May 2018  | 

So I was in need of a new belt, and for 5 more pounds I thought to myself why not take this upgrade kit.

And it's worth it. I now about this kit for a few years, since the problem appeared on the Debut Carbon (AC model) and RPM5 had noise induced from motor vibration.

I've separated my motor, from my Pro-ject Debut, inside a metal housing, and just used the pulley and the belt and there is a huge difference in vibration transmission. There were strong 50/100 Hz (33.33 RPM) and 135Hz (45 RPM) resonances, that this combo pretty took care of it. It didn't eliminate them entirely, but it reduced them considerably.

Speed wise, all is good. I cannot say it offers better speed stability, but with a well centered disc I got around +/- 0.11%, which is very good for a belt drive in this price range.

All in all, I recommended it!
