    yes on mine its just 1 allen bolt that holds it on,drill a hole in your plinth or stick down and you've got instant damping

    Obviously, there are others on this forum that could advise (Arkless) on matters electrical.
    I know that the Merlin for the Rock 7 is still available from Townsend but is a whooping 2,225 but even so, I doubt it will be compatible with the Rock II motor.

    Can't help but think that the best possible upgrade would be to lose the cabinet, replace with a HiFi rack, bit of room treatment in the corners & maybe behind the speakers, and let the speakers breathe more given the space limitations. No new cartridge, new amps etc. will come close to this upgrade IMHO!
