Best upgrade for a REGA RP 3
This is off topic but, wanted to offer up something that might be beneficial to you. Assuming your Arcam is the FMJ-A19, I have some experience with it in a family member's system. I found that a particular DIY Furutech power cord works very well ... 
Seeking opinions about phono specific interconnects
@elliottbnewcombjr  Your suggestion is a good consideration as a tool for learning purposes. I may just look into the idea.  
Seeking opinions about phono specific interconnects
@cleeds  Phono stage is a Manley Chinook. The existing cart is a high output moving coil (1.2 mv). The recommended load is 400-47,000 ohms. I usually prefer the lowest setting to minimize brightness. A similar example is that for moving magnet ca... 
DOL vinyl pressings
There are several European record labels, including DOL that issue what are called public domain releases. Those public domain records are of recordings that the European copyright has expired on. I think that the European copyright is for 50 year...

Cartridge suggestions for my rig
Thank you to everyone who has replied. @hsounds  Special thanks to you for reminding me about Wally Tools. I was aware of them in general but, had never really looked closely until now. After watching many of their videos, I am now planning to d... 
Any point in upgrading stock cables for a LPS?
Absolutely, yes. On my 5v LHY LPS for my Node 2. The sound signature of various brands of cords is discernable. I can easily hear the difference between two cords that are the same cord (the no longer available Cable Pro Vitality) but, each of th...

Power cords known to produce good bass
@jumia Yes, I did do the re-terminating myself. Before I continue, in all fairness, the term "el cheapo" I used to describe the cord ends that Transparent uses was a poor choice of words. Their cord ends are not poor quality products. It's that on... 
Power cords known to produce good bass
@jumia Due to my inadequate explanation, you have misunderstood which cables I'm wanting to improve. The cables that are the issue are the ones made with the Acrolink 7NP4030 II wire. I am a big fan of Transparent Audio cables largely because of t...
