    Cheers Grant, I dont plan on changing it any time soon but think a better arm would take up a notch or 2.

    Mine is difficult to change as it is drilled for a rega 250/300. Don't fancy trying to drill another hole in the thing but yes I would have liked to change mine too.
    Do you have a special mat or are u using the one that came with it. Was thinking of a change

    Iv used it with the matt it came with and without it but didnt notice any difference between on and off. Aside from cartridge changes the high current power supply made the biggest difference I think.

    Thanks....mine is one of the very first 10 made of the Arezzo's, so thought that they may have made several upgrades....the psu upgrade was quite expensive but I might save up and do that; I was not sure if it would make all that much difference but obviously it does.

    iv always assumed something like an audiomods arm would be a drop in replacement but il hold my hands up and say thats just an assumption.

    Thought I would post up a few photos of my new arm as I am am amazingly pleased with it

    [IMG][/IMG]



    [IMG][/IMG]

    For those not familiar with The Wand its made by Kiwi outfit Design Build Listen with its main feature being its big diameter carbon armtube and unipivot design. I believe its been around for a few years now and has picked up very positive reviews in the hi-fi press.

    I'm still "evaluating" it But I think its safe to say that from the first disk it played it was obviously quite a bit better than my old arm

    Sorry the pictures are not great but I only have a phone cam unfortunately.

    I thought I would post a quick system update photo as its been ages since I posted anything in the gallery.

    Changes since last time are as follows

    Arcam rdac has been pulled out and replaced by an m2tech Young dac and dedicated power supply.
    My cheapie phono stage has been temporarily replaced by Alan's excellent Firebottle stage.

    Both of these items have made a massive improvement to the quality of sound and I am now really very content indeed (so content that iv asked Alan to build me one of his FB+ stages as a "keeper"). So now apart from wanting to possibly source a few more mark grant cables I doubt I will be changing any of my hifi for a while.

    I have also started using a trail of the "Tidal hifi" streaming service which seems to me to sound really good.

    I realise everything is a bit of a mess and tbh im running out of space for everything.............but next weekend im picking up a new hifi rack and a new TV unit so il be back shortly with a few more pix when everything should look a lot more ship shape!
