Rega Planar 1 carbon stylus upgrade

Post by EarlC » 18 May 2019 23:10

Hi there , I was wanting to replace the standard carbon stylus on my rega 1 I've heard this will fit ? just wanting to confirm if this is true before I send off for it , apparently its a better stylus than the carbon one .. guess Im scared I will be wasting $130 NZD and it wont fit :)

Assuming also the tracking force will be the same as the rega 1 is plug and play and cant see how to adjust it ?

Everything I have read says the Rega Carbon is the same as an AT3600l.

As for tracking force, can't you move the counterweight?

You will probably need something to measure the tracking force when you change the cartridge, Rega 1 does not have any scale on the counterweight.
