Has anyone upgraded to an acrylic platter on their Pro-Ject Essential? I'm trying to find a seller in the USA but am only seeing UK sellers.

Using the Pro-Ject websites link for distribution around the world, it had one USA result :

Thank you, Orpheus, and sorry about the late reply.

So after running a whole bunch of tests with my brand new cheap-o multimeter, it is now clear that the problem lies somewhere between the white tonearm cable's cartridge clip, and the center conductor of the white RCA cable.

Next step: Opening the turntable for a peek inside, and further testing in order to determine if it's a) the white tonearm cable, b) the white RCA cable, or c) the connection between them.

No problem. Obviously this kind of basic troubleshooting has a multitude of other applications, if applied logically.

I use to listen records in a old Philips turntable, so, I bougth a Rega RP1 in order to improve my setup, and start to get some thing piece by piece (pre, amp and speakers). I have a pair of M-Audio BX5 studio monitors, that I use to Jam with my guitar at home, and each have itīs own built in amp. I decided to get a cheap preamp to test my turntable and use those monitors... and the result was more than I expected.

Very flat sound, but very clear to my ears, I really like it.

Do someone have a arragement like that?
