    Confirmed fan of noise, distortion and faff.

    standard RB300, if you are going to tweak its debateable,
    Music is a colourfull outburst of the soul, Can I use the colours I choose, Do I have some say what you use, Can I get some greens with my blues?

    Maybe you should be thinking what is the best turntable to go with a Rega arm.

    RB300 for me.

    Question on the R200 - don't they have problems with their anti-skate belt? As in they wear out and you can't find new ones for love or money?

    I thought I read somewhere that an appropriate replacement has now been found. I'm sure Audio Origami could advise.

    I recall a Rega 3 owning friend of mine taking his deck down to have an RB300 fitted, living with it for 2 or 3 weeks & then putting the R200 back on. It did sound much better on his deck.

    My r200's anti skate was repaired with a printer drive belt. I don't know which one. They are nice enough arms, a bit lossy though. I will not be selling mine again now i've got it back.
