I think I got lucky at the car boot yesterday, when I picked up an old Rega Planar 3, manufactured in 1979, for £80. Although I have no intention at this stage of disappearing down the rabbit hole, at that price I can justify throwing some money at it, so I'd be grateful for a few tips: It works, but runs very slow, so top of the list is a new belt. Research suggests their 'white belt' is no longer available, but alternatives abound...any recommendations? There's considerable 'elasticated' left-to-right movement on the drive spindle, top-to-bottom not so much. Removing the inspection hatch, I see there's a rubber band securing it to the motor plate. Should I replace this band, or is some left-to-right spindle movement normal/acceptable? It has a non-standard headshell (DSC Jelco) on the original R200 arm. Unfortunately, I destroyed the cartridge (JVC Z-2E) trying to remove & check the stylus, which for some reason was glued to it...so now I'm looking for a suitable replacement (happy to replace the headshell too if necessary). I've seen two strongly recommended: Ortofon 520 mk II, aka Vinyl Master Red, aka Music Hall Magic 3; and Denon DL-103. Both of these cost more than I'm prepared to spend before I know whether the deck has other problems, so I'm wondering whether there's a cheaper but reasonably good alternative, which I could keep as an acceptable spare if the deck turns out to be otherwise ok, & I then end up buying one of the more expensive recommendations for it. Many thanks in advance.
