I have been aware of the Tecno Weight for years now, but never thought I'd feel the need to upgrade my stub/counterweight to that level. I have a new Rega 202 arm on a custom Lenco L75. The arm had the RB300 stainless steel stub, but wasn't heavy enough for me to balance the Dynavector 10x5. When I started looking at my options, I realized that the Tecno Weight was the only solution worth pursuing. Why? Easy. It offers a longer stub, easy adjustment, and two weights that allow me to never worry about what my cartridge weight is again. I also own other Michell products, both VTA adjusters for my Rega arms. In all cases, the quality is top notch, and the products do what they say they'll do. If you have been in your audio adventure for more than a few years, you will understand what I mean when I say there is no point wasting money on possible solutions when the best solution is right here in the Tecno Weight.

Well machined, easy to assemble, install and set up.Well worth the money
Fitted this to my Rega RB250 on my twenty plus year old Planar 2 as part of a structured series of upgrades that includes 24volt motor and Neo PSU and the difference is amazing. The Tecno weight was fitted after the 24volt motor and prior to the Neo. Each upgrade has produced a marked improvement in detail, presentation and soundstage with the Neo now unleashing even more music than I thought possible after the Techno weight. With regards fitting and setup it was simplicity itself and the instructions provided were clear and detailed. Try not to take too much notice of the rubbish written on various websites. The stub on my arm was easy to remove. I locked the arm in its rest and further secured with a loosely fitted sandwich bag wire tie wrap. Two pieces of rubber about an inch wide and eight inches long were cut from an old bicycle inner tube and used to wrap around the arm at mid point and the second piece on the stub. Two slide pliers were used, one to hold the arm from twisting and the second to apply a turning force counterclockwise on the stub. The stub gave easily with no damage to finishes or the arm bearings. Fitting and setup was easy and the results are outstanding. Give it a try you won’t regret the upgrade.
Another and usual happy costumer over 20 years with Michell Products, very well made with a amazing quality.Another quick not to superb Audio Analogue service costumer, always prompt and quickerThank you guysFernando
Very good packaging and fast delivery. The weight is very well built and improves the sound tremendously. But it's fiddly to adjust VTF: fit the Allen key, loosen, move the weight, tighten without moving it, repeat.
This device is the best counterweight for Rega tonearms. You can really balance any cartridge ever. Very elaborated desing and features.
I upgraded my RP3 counterweight to the Michell Tecno Weight. Fortunately, the Tecno Weight was easy to install and the instructions simply enough to follow. A bit fiddly to set the grub screws so the counterweight is horizontal and also tracking at the cartridge recommended VTA. A bit of perseverance however, does pay off. A subtle but noticeable improvement.
Tighter bass, more focused sound-stage, and a sweeter treble, made for a great improvement on my RP3. Easy to fit, though care is needed removing the old stubshaft to not damage the arm bearings.
I put the Technoweight on my RP6. No dramas assembling, it looks smart and has made given the music a sense of calm and improved definition.

I have been modifying my Rega 25 turntable and my initial impressions after fitting the technoweight were mixed. There was no night and day experience but the music was clearer.However after a complete rewire with Cardas cable I can now say it has all come together.I have learned that no one part stands alone in an upgrade, each affects the other, and it is only when all of the important components have been attended to does one hear the full result.I would recommend the technoweight as a worthwhile upgrade but go the full distance to gain full benefit.
