Rega Upgrade (white) Belt

As a general guideline it's a good idea to replace your belt every five years.  This value can vary a bit based on the usage, foreign substances getting on the belt, sunlight, heat etc.

The white belt does sound a little better - you can hear it.  In our personal, financially compromised opinion, it's worth the extra $20 over the black belt when upgrading. Goes extra good with The White Album.

This is the stock belt on the Rega RP8 and RP10.
