Here is a pic of my living room before a party recently. Forum member RWilbur brought his Bozak ISO X. The system sounded huge. The speakers are a 12" powered sub, a Pair of Klipsch Heresys, a Stephens Trusonic FR52P 15" fullrange and a Klipsch MMTM tweeter array.

MR. ZDUR, are those Rega RB300 tonearms? They look cool. Did you install them yourself? If so, was it difficult?

They are rb-250's or OL1's, I'm almost certain he has had the structural upgrade done to them (made a big difference in sound imo) and some other mods.
I am so drooling over that setup now lol How did you like the Bozak ISO-X with your mixer?

Looks good. I'm sure it sounds good, too. Which is much more important than how it looks. What is the "structural upgrade"?

I don't own an ISO-X, bro.

Hey there. The arms are Rega RB250 arms. One is an Origin Live OL1 with structural upgrade and internal rewire with Eichmann copper Bullets, the other is a Rega that I upgraded myself with a Michell Technoweight, internal and external rewire, and silver bullets. Both armboards are from Origin Live. I rebuilt this deck first, and it sounded so good that I got the OL1 with upgrades on Audiogon soon after (way under retail). The first deck cost me about $200 to upgrade after I sold the stock arm. Not to bad a deal! Installation isn't that difficult, but the internal rewire is a bitch and the the stock wiring is pretty bad. The Structural upgrade makes a big difference in the accuracy of the bass, but the stock weight is way better than a technics arm.

I like the ISO-X a lot, it feels and sounds really nice. they are really well built too. They are really freeking expensive though. I think I am going to get an E&S if I don't find an RLA unit first.

When you buy a tonearm, you don't get the armboard? Is the armboard the round flat surface/device that you mount the tonearm to?

You lost me, bro. Is it easy or hard? Can you expand on the "internal rewire"?

Ok, I can see the benefit of the upgrade. Now, what exactly does the structural upgrade entail? By that I mean what parts are needed and what exactly is being done.

Mr ZDUR, I've replaced damaged tonearms before on 1200s. It wasn't that difficult, tedious maybe. But I'm a little worried about after market stuff because I've never upgraded tonearms before. That's why I'm inquisitive. To me it's a question of time. If I buy some cool Rega tonearms and then tear apart my new 1200s only to realize I'm missing a certain tool or part necessary then I'm gonna be pissed. Pissed at myself for not having researched the procedure thoroughly in the first place. I don't think upgrading the tonearms will be difficult, per say. But I just don't want to waste time, you know?

Installation is super easy. All you have to do is remove the entire stock tonearm and replace it with a new armboard and arm. There are 2 armboards available. One is made by Origin Live and the other is sold by a dude on ebay. Search for 1200 rega on ebay and you will find it, they are quite nice. You need the armboard to attach the new tonearm to your deck. check out tonearm.co.uk for more info on Origin Live. You don't need to do an internal rewire, but if you are wacko like me, it is necessary. The original wire is not OFC. If you are not REALLY good with a soldering iron, either live with the stock wiring or buy an arm that has been upgraded. The structural upgrade replaces the weight and the nub that the weight sits on, which is cheap plastic on the RB250. Alternatively, you could get an RB300 which has a nice nub and weight.

I replace Technics Tonearms when i need to , Is tedious as you guys mention, but you need to have also some experience in equipment (repairs etc)

I replace both of my TD 125, I use Tp-16 tonearms, (the ones that came on the TD 126.. This ones are much more easy. just a good soldering surgery the tonearms and a protracktor to adjust everything .

Good job

Those VTAF and VTA adjuster things are unnecessary, especially if you don't change carts very often.. I have owned both the Michell and OL ones and with them the tracking angle is too extreme anyway. The lowest setting (no spacers and no VTA adjuster) is perfect for Grado carts.

Cool, thanks. No need for VTAF. Where can I buy the Origin Live armboards?

If I were you, I would get one of these instead.
You can get the OL one at tonearm.co.uk.

I think I will. That looks super clean. The auction says "REGA MOUNTING PLATE". Is it made by Rega?
