    Rega RB2000 tone arm

    The Rega 3-point mount IS from the top, rather than the bottom via a pillar nut as on the earlier arms. Standard Rega sized hole in the platter, drill 3 X holes in the platter around the periphery piloted by the mounting holes in the arm base. Robert is your father's brother. With a solid acrylic arm base the way would be to use 3 X self-tappers into pilot holes, unless longer bolts are used with nuts underneath the arm board.
  2. In 10/10 unusued condition, a Rega RB2000 tone arm, as fitted to the much-lauded RP10 turntable. Bought for a project that was subsequently abandoned. As can be seen here: https://www.oxfordaudio.co.uk/shop/Rega-RB2000-Tonearm it retails at £1,250. I will post insured to UK buyer for £700.

    Rega RP10 Turntable and arm

    SOLD, deposit paid. Owned by me for a little over a year and in good overall condition. Available with the stock copper-wired RB2000 arm, or, for a negotiable additional sum, a RB2000 wired in Ikeda silver with a short capitive phono lead in Audio Note Vx and P-plugs. I have the original packing. There are some minor scuffs on the perspex lid that would polish out, and one of the rubber bands that locate the secondary plinth is missing. I am in north Devon. £1,300 + carriage buys it. Circa £3100 is the new price.

    You are in good, what I like to call 'thinking' company. As you observe, we don't know how to measure all of what makes a box sound the way it does. Trust the measurements for what they might usefully tell, but trust your ears as well, is the mindful response. I gather from G47 that your day was illuminating. I am not in the slightest bit surprised at your conclusions.

    Aahhh, but you do realise, don't you, that since the difference in sound that you heard cannot be measured, your subjective judgement is valueless...or so the measurebators here will assert. Enjoy the music? Heaven forfend! You are using the wrong sense organs. You should be listening with your eyes.
  8. There it is. The OP never wanted advice, just a third-party endorsement of a decision already made. So far, so forum. No endorsement = no engagement with advice. I have asked someone to kill me if ever I post here again. Kill me. Dead.
  9. I am no expert, but the current generation M6 Phono uses 5670 tubes, not 6072As. And those who have suggested that the OP gets his M6 looked at are correct, in my view. The sound he describes suggests a problem.

    SALE Yamaha CR1000 Receiver

    Price reduction by £60 to £300 dead. I am not using it, so it makes no sense to have it sitting around.

    Would appreciate it if some kind soul here could PM me Dom's contact details. I see he has left Watch Religion. Thank you. KevinF.

    Sending messages to ET - a good idea?

    Perhaps we are viewed by other inhabitants of the galaxy as the noisy, dirty, disputatious neighbours with the broken washing machines and freezers dumped on the front lawn.

    I'm with you, Jerry. Advertise life on earth? What could possibly go wrong?
