Manufacturer: Edwards Audio
Originally designed for use with the Rega derived Edwards Audio turntables, this drive belt is quite different from the regular Rega ones. It has a smooth, shiny, and slightly sticky surface which is much less elastic than normal rubber belts and offers much more grip on the subplatter.
Please note you may notice a squeak when starting up your Rega turntable using this belt, this is perfectly normal.
My Rega RP1 had the issue that it runs a little fast (33.6/7). The blue belt came in around 33.2 so way more accurate and exactly what I needed. I can't determine if wow/flutter changed or if the sound quality is better than before but I can tell it sounds more accurate in speed.

Spot On!Rega deck now runs pretty much right on 33.33 with VERY little speed variation. Had two white belts, both ran at about 33.6/33.7 though the speed was reasonable stable. Also had a black belt which ran at about 33.5 but the speed varied much more than the white belts. Won’t bother with any other belt from now on.Cheers
I have Rega Planar 3 (2017). With original Rega belt turntable was running at 33.6 rpm. With Little Belter it now runs at correct 33.3 rpm!

Very happy with this belt.Fitted to my Planar 1 it has improved the rpm reading by .5%, recommended.
I very rarely write product reviews but after hearing the Little Belter first hand, I had to.I've spent the last 3 days desperately trying to hear wow or flutter after fitting this belt and I just can't! Now, either my ears are useless or this belt is wonderful and as far as I'm concerned, it's the latter. Speed and timing is spot on and the bass also sounds a lot more controlled. At 45rpm it's so precise as well. Definitely only buying Little Belters from now on!
It is unbelievable what such a small part can change. My RP6 sounds now a lot better. I`m amazed of your little blue belt!Congrats to your product and thank you!A very happy customer and music fan.
Goes great with acryllic platter and aluminium sub platter. Easy to fit and sounds great
I recently bought the Edwards Audio Little Belter for my 2016 REGA P3, which now spins at EXACTLY 33 1/3 rpm.
Earlier this year I purchased a Rega white belt for my Rega 25 turntable.This was a significant improvement on the black belt.I continued the upgrade with the Edwards acrylic platter and aluminium sub-platter, each bringing its own improvement in musical presentation.After reading reviews of the Edwards little belter, and Edward's own advice for pairing their aluminium sub-platter with their little belter, I decided to purchase the blue belt to determine if there was any difference between it and the Rega white belt.Well profound may be too strong a description for some, but in terms of dynamics and clarity I think that is exactly the case. Detail has also increased. Tonight I went back to the white belt and played the beginning of Mozart's Piano Concert no.17 with Daniel Barenboim and the English Chamber Orchestra, then changed to the blue belt and played the beginning again. The difference was immediate. As said before dynamics and clarity changed dramatically. This was confirmed by wife who listened without knowledge of the belt changes and after I had played both tests I asked which she preferred. Without hesitation she chose the second, greater clarity and realism were her words.Overall I have to say I am experiencing vinyl reproduction which is as steady as a rock, and as close as one could get to live music without having the musicians in the house.For those interested, my system includes an Ortofon Quintet Bronze MC Cartridge, a Lehmann Black Cube phono pre-amp, a Gryphon Callisto 2200 integtated amplifier with Gryphon online mk2 power cord and Harmonic Technology interconnects and speaker cables. The speakers are Opera Secondo.
