1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I've reasonable amount of experience with the 1200/1210, having done the psu/arm etc thing. Didn't go much further than this but doing so opened the window on the massive potential hiding within this turntable.

    I would...

    1. Keep the Expo phonostage - it's superb. I borrowed a Dynavector P75 when I had my VII/VI and it was no improvement. The P75 was £400 at the time, a fair bit more now.

    2. Don't put the Rega arm on the Technics. I had a fully Origami'd 251 but even though the arm is superb in its own right, I don't think it's a great match for the Tecchy - it's dynamically and musically clumsy IME on it, but perhaps look at a used Jelco 750D instead if you can find one. Reckon on about 300 quid for that.

    3. I hear good things about getting the Technics' psu out of the plinth, gets the 'noise' away from the system.

    This is, of course, a personal opinion - and I just wish I had 500 quid to spare to spend on my rig. :D
