Recently bought a Rega Planar 2 and have a few questions about upgrades.
- In terms of upgrading the cartridge I understand that in the US the Rega Exact is very expensive but adding a shim to the tonearm allows for some other cheaper models to be added. Is this challenging/difficult to do?
- The rubber ring that controls the speed seems very loose when I move it to the smaller part of the spindle. Is that normal? I’ve seen some people upgrade to a silicone ring?
- Is it worth upgrading the platter and or slip mat?
- I’m going into the phono input of a Denon AVR-X2700H. How good is this built-in pre amp? What are the upgrade options?
