    Has anyone in the tent used an SME309 with a Gyro/Orbe? We've establised that the SME IV and V are extremely good but not exactly small change. The 309 would bridge that gap somewhat.

    Still I am happy with the Tabriz on mine although at some point I imagine I'm going to try an Artemiz.

    I demmed a 309 on an Orbe as I was contemplating one. It didn't justify the price over the Technoarm. It has a bit more control over the bass but that was about it and it didn't make me want to swap it for the technoarm.

    Certainly on the Gyro/Orbe the Techno makes a lot of sense. Designed by Michell, one of the few OEM Rega arms where the Michell staff were trained by Rega themselves to build their arms.

    It's just a good match on the Michell decks. SME iv/v and Moerch DP6 are the ones I've heard that are seriously better than the Techno on the Orbe SE. All cost a fair bit more.

    Well,I suspect the time isright to send the tecnoarm back to Cable Monkey (sorryI've kept it so long - it'll be a real wrench tosee it go......).

    What a bloodygood arm it is.

    I can feel my eyes welling up.

    Why not e-mail Johnnie at Audio Origami for a quote on one of his RB250s?
    I'm told they're a step-up from the Tecnoarm.

    I am glad it has given you so much pleasure as well as an insight into the real capabilities of vinyl playback. You have reply to your PM.
    Let me get this straight. You take a perfectly good CD and put it in a DVD player??!!

    I've been putting it off for ages - keep looking at his website and doing the sensible sums - internal and external rewire, earth pin mod, foam fill etc.....

    .....then my eyes are inevitably drawn to the polishing and plating options and all my good sense goes out the window .

    But shinyalways sounds better. I'm sure of it.

    If Johnnie's mods really do outstrip a Tecnoarm, then kudos to him, cos his work must be very special indeed.

    I currently use a Roksan Artemiz on my Orbe SE, I believe it is up there with the SME V. You may find one second hand for a reasonable price as they have never been the most fashionable arm oustside of Roksan users. Roksan refurbished my ancient MK I to near MK II specs for a moderate price (sorry can't remember how much) and you won't need a new armboard.
