This End Stub will fit ALL RegaTonearms.
The Outside Diameter of the End stub is .500.
The Original Half Moon Heavy Weight will fit.
What is heard is the opening of the sound stage. Instrument separation. Sound stage gets deeper. Sound stage becomes wider. The Harmonics of the Instruments sound REAL. These are the things you can accomplish with the Ultra Fine End Stub. The details of the MUSIC are in the ULTRA FINE ADJUSTMENT of VTF.
EXPRESSIMOAUDIO brings you another Innovation for Rega arms.
Now offering the solid brass adjustable end stub.
You now can have HIGH END upgrades on the REGA Arm.
EXPRESSIMOAUDIO IS THE FIRST TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
When you combine the brass stub with our brass “Half Moon Weight" you will find the difference between stock and our upgrades staggering.
Tolerances are - .001 / + Nothing
Be the first ONE to have the BEST thing to hit the REGA AFTER MARKET.
Expressimoaudio has been designing HIGH END arms like the GOLD MONGOOSE.
In our research to make the ultimate arm (our Mongoose tonearm) we developed an adjustable end stub. The next progression for the arm that put us on the map was to make a similar device for Rega arms.
ON THE FLY
REGA Lovers can dial your tracking force with just a 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or a full turn. You can HEAR .010 to .030 of a gram tracking force difference.
One full turn is .030 of a Gram
THE beauty of this stub is- YOU DON'T NEED TO REWEIGH THE TRACKING FORCE WHEN MOVING THE FINE ADJUSTMENT.
Cartridge Weight works like this:
Cartridges 6 to 10 gm, Moon Weight 120
Cartridges 10 to 14 gm, Moon Weight 140
Cartridges 14+ Moon Weight 160
HOW TO USE IT:
Lets take time to listen to the old end stub first.
Take your old end stub off.
Screw the BRASS End Stub on tightly with your fingers.
You set the adjustment all the way forward.
Gently, very gently lock the 2 nuts.
they should move together and be snug NOT TIGHT.
Now look at your cartridge Instructions and see what the tracking force is.
1.7 to 1.5
Now set the main Heavy Weight to 1.6 .
Now unscrew a Half turn and listen. Do it again ,as you unscrew the 2 nuts you will notice the sound stage becomes more open LEFT and RIGHT and DEEPER. GREATER Separation of instruments. Now Stop and listen for awhile.
Screw in half turn and make sure your happy.
If not keep unscrewing until you find the MAGIC POINT. There is a point.
If you go to far you will find there is too much air. Her voice is too big ( too much air) . Then turn it back in. I like to go too far then dial it back.
It is always good to go to far, so you can hear it an understand the 2 sounds. .
Moving it 1.590 / 1.580 / 1.570 / 1.560 and so on.
Expressimoaudio gives YOU the Power to Dial your Tracking force truly in, like a HIGH END Tonearm ON THE FLY.
Key points: The heavier the tracking force the more bass and centered it will be. The Lighter the tracking force the more HIGHS and wider sound stage. The happy point is dialing it in so you get BOTH.
Last point: when your happy with the sound always reweigh the tracking force so you can go back to that weight.
