3.0 out of 5 stars Decent product but read the instructions, 4 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks great. Far better build than some of the cheaper brands (I returned two to Amazon)
Mine was slightly rusty on the welds but decided to keep it as it was not too noticeable.
It does actually get quite hot and throws out a fair amount of heat rather than being strictly ornamental.
The instructions say it can mark table tops if not using something underneath it.
As with all Bio-ethanol fires it only burns for a couple of hours and needs to cool down before re-filling.
probably best to buy the ceramic wool that can be found elsewhere on the site which when used gives
a more even flame and reduces fuel usage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent upgrade, 4 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought this to replace the normal black felt one on my Rega Planar
Didn't affect set up or tracking .
Looks superb with the Rega glass platter (even my better half commented)
Not light and shade sonic difference that fitting a quality cartridge would give but still noticeable nonetheless.
Definitely not a "snake oil" product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lesson learnt, 30 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed an simple protractor to fit a new cartridge and ordered this from this supplier with the said cartridge. As Stated in other reviews this is a cardboard replacement for the original Rega supplied one.
it arrived in the same Jiffy bag crumpled around the cartridge I had ordered in a totally unusable state.
I suppose I could have tried ironing the thing but found It quicker and easier to download a free one from a well known turntable
Forum and write the couple of pounds paid off to experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars MP 110 vs Ortofon 2M red, 23 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given the similarity of pricing between the MP 110 and the Ortofon 2M Red I think its probably worthwhile offering my thoughts and comparisons having just replaced a 2M with the Nagaoka on my Rega.
Having owned a 2M Red for a couple of years I have to disagree with comments regarding its "Over-analytical" nature.
The 2M is a very fine first upgrade cartridge. It has a refined sound, solid bass and its slightly "rolled-off" top end, contrasting sharply with its bigger brother 2M Blue which offers an almost CD- like sound.
In short, it is an extremely good-looking, easy to fit cartridge, that gives a controlled performance across all genres of music.
My first impressions of the MP110 were firstly its classic square style but nonetheless nice looks. Despite not having the captive screws of the 2M it was again easy to fit and set up.
Initially listening to a familiar recording like Fleetwood Mac's rumours I felt the output of the Nagaoka was below that of the ortofon and I found myself increasing the volume on my Arcam fmj A19 amp to compensate.
That said, the Nagaoka offered a much fuller bass and a very musical and involving mid band. Everything has a downside and I found the treble of the 110 a little brittle and metalic, very unlike the smooth understated nature of the Ortofon.
With a little perseverance,and half a dozen albums later the top end was softening a little and by day two I was listening to a very nice top end and surface noise levels comparable to the Ortofon
I'm now firmly of the view that the 2M's strong point is its ability to play any genre of music competently.
The MP 110 offers a similar performance, but just shades it if your record collection is predominantly rock as it is the more musical of the two and although slightly less detailed, is just a little bit more exciting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, 28 Sep 2014
A possible great product loses 2 stars from me.
The first because I've spent the past 2 weeks looking for a non-existent pound sign rather than $ on the keyboard. I thought I was shopping on the Amazon UK site for heavens sake !
The second star is docked because the Apple software won't allow me to manually sync my fully updated iPad . Ok, I can sync through iCloud but that only accounts for iTunes purchases. It just smacks of arrogance
Thankfully the Amazon player is far more customer/user friendly
