Recommended Components Addendum Stereophile Staff, October, 2007 Phono Accessories & Record Cleaners Kerry Audio Design F2 Titanium tonearm counterweight: $129Titanium replacement counterweight for Rega tonearms. Machined with three sets of thin contact rails that ride on the Rega arm's counterweight stub. The sonic improvement was "amazing," thought MF; he found the F2 gave better bass response, greater low-frequency extension and control, and an improved sense of overall weight and tonal richness. (Vol.26 No.5)

KERRY AUDIO DESIGN INC. The F2-Titanium H/W Counterweight
HiFi+... #1 & Stereophile's Recommended Component! Now highly reviewed by Jimmy Hughes of HiFi+ Issue #28... "In many ways this was my favourite of the three weights, sonically." (Reviewed were the Michell Tecno, The Heavy Weight and the F2-Titanium Heavyweight).If you would like to read the review (all three pages), it's available by request. Note: The F2 will fit the Rega RB300, RB600, RB900, RB1000 as well as the Origin Live tonearms. WILL FIT THE RB250 but requires the end stub be changed (contact me for more information).STEREOPHILE'S RECOMMENDED COMPONENTS (October 2003, page #60) Kerry Audio Design... F2 Titanium tonearm counterweight: "Titanium replacement counterweight for Rega tonearms. Machined with three sets of thin contact rails that ride on the Rega arm's counterweight stub. THE SONIC IMPROVEMENT WAS "amazing", THOUGHT Michael Fremer; HE FOUND THE F2 GAVE BETTER BASS RESPONSE, GREATER LOW-FREQUENCY EXTENSION AND CONTROL, AND AN IMPROVED SENSE OF OVERALL WEIGHT AND TONAL RICHNESS."STEREOPHILE Reviewed: May 2003 Analog Corner (by Michael Fremer page #31)F2-Titanium Heavyweight Counterweight..."relatively inexpensive accessories made to the RB300’s low-frequency performance was not subtle: it was amazing"… "If you want much better bass response from your system, greater low-frequency extension and control, and a much-improved sense of overall “weight” and tonal richness, try one of these". STEREOPHILE February 2003 Analog Corner (by Michael Fremer) page 28..."The more I learn about tonearm behavior, the less Rega's O-ring-suspended counterweight makes sense to me. The compressed O-ring is a spring with a high resonant frequency that's probably in the range of music - it can't decouple the counterweight one whit, and can probably do only bad things to the sound".

ABOUT THE KERRY AUDIO DESIGN... F2 - TITANIUM H/W COUNTERWEIGHT!!!F2 - TITANIUM Heavyweight counterweight for the Rega & the Origin Live tonearms is made from high-grade titanium and is CNC precision milled. The hole is offset so as to drop the center point of gravity of the counterweight. The weight is 115grm. vs. Rega's stock counterweight which weighs 100grm.The main feature of the F2 - TITANIUM Heavyweight counterweight is that it is made of titanium. Titanium when compared with stainless steel possesses “many times less” the ringing-factor. As everything is in motion, it is therefore energized and as such, the tonearm benefits significantly from the titanium’s very low ring-factor. The second feature of the F2 - TITANIUM Heavyweight counterweight is the way in which the end stub hole is cut. The hole has three thin contact rails on which it rides on the arm’s counterweight stub with a snug fit. This feature significantly reduces the counterweight’s contact with the end stub, improving the arm's performance and at the same time, sets it apart from other products available on the market. The counterweight is secured by a nylon tipped machined setscrew and as such will not mark the end stud. The F2 - TITANIUM Heavyweight counterweight's two main features (titanium & unique end stub cutout) reward you with: amazing (not subtle) low-frequency performance. You will quickly notice: much better bass response, greater low-frequency extension and control, and a much-improved sense of overall “weight” and tonal richness. Benefits: Why buy an F2-TITANIUM Heavyweight counterweight over its main two competitors? Titanium vs. stainless steel: stainless steel possesses a very long ringing sound when struck or energized vs. titanium which has an extremely short ring tone. High-grade aluminum falls between the titanium and stainless but closer to the titanium in performance. Titanium possesses what many consider as the Holy Grail, however, its use is limited due to its very high cost (5 to 6 times that of stainless).
