PT too belts

Postby jy3 » 15 Jan 2018 12:06

I can buy an original PT belt for £24.99, an Origin Live for £33.00 and also one for £6.99. What do PT owners on here use, and would the cheaper belt have any serious lack on sound quality?

I wish I could Help Dave but have had no experience with this yet.

Where does one buy the original belt ? I have seen the OL belt advertised on the true point site so it may be good but it seems over priced (not as over priced as a Linn belt though)

Maybe the cheap one is worth a go ? You will know then if it is any good.

I am sure there must be people on here that can answer the question......

Links to the ones seen on ebay.

I will probably go for the cheaper one unless someone chips in with negative comments.

I think I have tried one of the cheaper ones (Malvern Audio/dappletoft) and could not notice a different. The original ones come from the Funk Firm - they also sound good. I may try an OL one, as a couple of people I know reckon they can hear an improvement.

Not much Help, but that is all I know!

I have also bought belts from Malvern Audio and found them to be fine and reasonable value.

Have bought belts in the past that were listed for Garrard :wink:
Found them to be every bit as good as the 'specialist' items :!:
A lot of bull [-X spoken about belts.
Just get the right one---not too much tension #-o

I ordered the cheaper belt yesterday. Will update my findings when the belt arrives.
