I know this has been asked many times before, but I'm just wondering what the general opinion is about the 250 vs 300 these days. Everything I've read says that the 250 might be the way to go if upgrades like end stub and weight are planned, but I've also heard that the 300 is ultimately better once modded. For what it's worth, I've noticed that most builders (Audiomods, Audio Origami, Origin Live etc) start with the 250.
I saw this break down somewhere:
a stock 300 is better than a stock 250
a modded 250 is better than a stock 300
a modded 300 is better than a stock 250
I don't know how far I plan on going with things, but I'd probably change the weight at the very least.
There's also the option of going with the RB600 or one of the newer 3 point arms like what Etiner did, but I'm not sure I want to start drilling into my plinth... yet.
Any other suggestions are also welcome.
Setup so far: Planar 3 w/ R200, Ortofon OM20, GT reference subplatter, 24v motor upgrade, Dual belt, TTPSU.
