    This is the problem.

    Do you find the Audiomods arm as fast and dynamic sounding as the Ittok? I'm using a modified RB300 just now and prefer it to the Ittok but it still lacks a degree of bite, if you like. It is hard to describe sounds.

    Do you find the Audiomods arm to be a lot better than the modded Regas?

    I just happen to think your opinion is a general sweeping statement of wrongness

    I have a couple of AudioMod arms and wouldn't go back to any of the other, modified or not, RB250's....I use mine with Grado cartridges and they both sound superb.
    The nice thing about the AudioMod arm is it's upgradable...mines being upgraded as i type this!

    I don't think it's as fast as the Ittok but I found it more homogenous. Is that the right word I wonder? More together if you get me. It has the bite you find lacking in the 300. The Ittok, whilst being faster was teetering on the edge and I think that encouraged the raggedness I sometimes experienced. Don't get me wrong, the Ittok is a good arm even today, but the AudioMods Rega is a better allrounder in my opinion.

    Yes, that sounds like an Ittok all right. Great with clean recordings but ready to pierce your ears on others. That was why I got rid of it. One minute it was great, the next you felt like throwing it out the window.

    I still think the Ittok just looks right! (PU7 and SMEV not far behind).

    Considering how long it takes to fit you'd be best just knocking me out and taking the whole deck.
