    I am pretty sure yours is a mk 1 platter, and the one you link to is a mk2 Strata platter.

    Yes, it is a mk1. The Mk2 does not have the lip on the bottom.
    It is still a great platter, and a worthwhile upgrade to any standard SL1200.

    Yes, it is the mk1. On the link posted there are no references to the mk1 or mk2 version.
    Sorry for the wrong indication, for this matter I think it is correct to apply a 50 UKŁ discount on price that will be 450 UKŁ.

    Please can you tell me what the arm is, and also how it will compare with a standard Valhalla LP12 + RB300?

    It's an Audiomods tonearm. I think it's a very good one, in all likelihood better than the RB300 due to the new bearing and the possibility to adjust the VTA (mine hasn't the micrometer option because it does not fit on the ebony tonearm board). Btw I have a new turntable so in the next days I will sell the tonearm.

    I really don't know how it will compare with an LP12, just think that Technics should be plyg and play while the Linn is a wonderful turntable but needs frequent adjustments and it's not for me :-)

    So you are not including the arm?
