I've decided to bite the bullet and upgrade the tonearm on my rebuilt AR-XB turntable to a Rega tonearm(Probably an RB300 or so). Well, the issue was kind of forced upon me when the original headshell got busted during transport to a new home.
I've scoped out a local plastics guy who can machine an armboard to my specifications, so all good on that front. My question relates to the vertical positioning of the Rega arms with respect to the platter. I've spend a while googling with no concrete answer, other than "around 25-28mm".
Does anyone know the answer off hand? Or does anyone have a turntable fitted with one of the Rega arms that they could take a quick measurement off? I'm essentially after the height difference between the surface of the platter and the surface of the armboard. Either the old style mounting, or the newer 3-point will do.
