Rega Elys 2 cartridge ideal replacement for Linn K9

We are getting through lots of Rega Planar 3 turntables in for service and upgrade. The most common request is to replace the (now ageing) Linn K9 cartridges, which were a favourite choice some years back.

The closest equivalent appears to be the Rega Elys2 .. very similar in presentation to the K9, clean and dynamic .. and it suits the Rega arm well. In this arm you can also take advantage of the Elys's three point mounting system, which makes alignment foolproof.

Very keenly priced at £119, the Elys is somewhat cheaper than the K9 was in real terms too

We have also had good results in Linn Akito, Basik and Ittok arms

Furutech fuses

Quite often in Hifi it's the simplest things that make the biggest differences!

The mains supply is where it all starts .... decent quality cables and plugs give a better connection and better RF rejection. The one part of the chain which quite often gets overlooked is the mains fuse. Fuses are quite often very poorly made and prone to corrosion/oxidation .... and easy solution is to take them out occassionally and give them a clean, this does improve matters a little, but spending a little money here can sort the issue permanently.

We have had really good results with Furutech fuses ... not cheap items when you compare them to everyday hardware shop items ... but for performance per pound, they work really well. (particularly in conjunction with the Furutech 1363R mains plug)

Our blog software seems reluctant to do pictures at the moment .... to see them, go to :-
