Lenco originally using a 5mm stainless steel bearing. If you disassemble the whole spindle tube, which is pretty mush easy, you will find the spindle sits on the SS bearing and the bearing sit on a 0.75mm thick (sort of) plastic sheet (which we believe is for anti-resonance purpose) and then sit on a (1.5mm) metal plate hold by a clip.
We have tried quite a few market available upgrade options, which, to some extend, did improve or change the sonic result. Personally, I believe those all depend on your personal tastes. So if you are considering an upgrade here, please do consider our option too.
In this video, we demo the sonic different between the original SS bearing and our upgrade kits, a Tungsten Bearing and an extra 1.5mm thick PURE 999 silver plate, which need to put in between the bearing and the original holding steel plate. (The best performance needs us to stick the silver plate onto the steel plate with 3M self-adhesive tape.)
If you like it, they are only US$26.00 + shipping. We ship worldwide.
