Hi - i'm going to ask a couple of questions here too as am also working out how to improve my Planar 3 which i've had since 2001. It's 1990s Planar 3 with a RB250 arm. Has a Ortofon 2M red and sounds very bright. Is the P3 significantly better than Planar 3? Or upgrading the arm to RB300? Which is more cost effective?

Welcome. You’ll probably do well to change the stylus to a blue but before that buy a tracking scale for less than £10 and put the weight at about 2g and see what you hear.

Hi all. Quick update. Just fitted the AT-VM540ML. First few spins and I have to say it sounds like a different turntable. Blows the Elys away, in my opinion. I’ve got a 750SH to test as well, but doubt I’ll be able to justify the extra ££
Hi. Was it an easy fit? Thanks.
