    I've selected these upgrades - 1) Cardas Premium Cartridge Tags
    2) Rewire - Cardas 33ga ofc Copper litz
    3) Pure Silver Plated Finished (inc foam fill)

    backed with a 2M black, think this will give it a kick; what you recon mate?

    It'll be a bigger kick (with none of the audiophilia nervosa) than your original plan of selling the RP6 and starting again with a different turntable.
    Good move fella, Jony really is the top man when it comes to improving tonearms.

    For your budget, for me, going down this route is the biggest bang for buck you'd get.

    Hannibal approved too...

    Have you got a wet vacuum record cleaning machine yet? If you don't have one, put that at the top of your upgrade list.

    Good advice. (Though I sold my Loricraft PRC6 after getting a Degritter which is wet, but ultrasonic rather than vacuum - either way makes a huge difference to using vinyl).

    I use a record machine from a guy in Brazil for the last 5 years or so, uses your own vacuum cleaner, it is as effective as much more expensive ones.
    Not sure itís being made anymore, but worth mentioning for the Youtube video alone.
