Any tests available for the Rega RP1 Performance Pack? Probably sounds rather different to the basic RP1, using another cartridge. Not much more money for the upgrade. (On another note, broke the cartridge needle with my shirt sleeve this Friday  shame on you , has to replace at least a cartridge, probably will replace entire player).

You should only need a new stylus. This pulls out the front of the cartridge and is easy and cheaper to replace unless you want to upgrade of course.

If it's the Ortofon OM cartridge, then you just need to replace the needle. If it's a Rega cartridge, then, you need to replace the lot.
