The mounting distance and hole size limits choice, but a Rega R200 might fit? However, height may be an issue and IMHO the Tabriz is a better arm.

There are other arms with a similar mounting distance but I don't think many S-shaped arms would drop in the same hole.

Thanks for answer :D . The Rega r200 i think the diameter is biger.( The Acos lustre original from Rega Planet has big diameter than Tabriz and i think they are same. :roll:

Yep, I think the R200 may be 1-2mm bigger (25mm?). I have a Tabriz and an RB300 on hand, but not an R200 so I can't measure it. The RB250/300 originally came with a stepped washer to fit the R200 hole, and the Tabriz was designed to fit the smaller (23-24mm) RB250/300 hole, so I guess the Xerxes is cut close to that?.

Hello, i didn,t measure de hole diameter but i can read Tabriz especifications and says that is 22mm.
Maybe look for a model that is attached with small threaded screws on the top(I prefer that option to enlarge the original hole. :cry:
