My favorite turntable mat. These are nicely machined, with an indent for the label of your LP so your record will lay flat. The cork and rubber are perfect together, cork helps with gripping and rubber helps with dampening.

Top of the Prestige line-up. A wonderful match to the rewired RB-202, and particularly excellent with horns and vocals.

A wonderful match to the rewired RB-202, and particularly excellent with horns and vocals.
Great performance on a more modest budget. This cartridge excels with most rock, pop, blues, and acoustic music.
The most common moving magnet choice for Vinyl Nirvana tables. This cartridge does everything right! I love its balance across the audio spectrum, and for a cartridge so good at retrieving music from grooves, it's also very quiet while doing so!
The 2M Black is the top of the 2M (moving magnet) line up. The shibata diamond is amazing at retrieving detail. When listening to the 2M Black, one of the most common comments is "Wow, I never heard that before!"
The biggest short coming of an RB250 / 202 type arm is the plastic counter weight extension. Whilst some companies have produced exotic solutions to this problem, an economical and equally effective upgrade can be had by simply fitting the counter weight and counter weight extension (stub) from an RB303/330 type arm.
Nothing works like a genuine Thorens standard belt with logo. Once your new turntable is adjusted using this belt, all you will need to do in the future is just order this same belt again. If you keep switching belt manufacturers, you will never get things quite right twice in a row. Before checking out, explore other Thorens replacement and upgrade parts.
