Well, I'm not an expert mind you, but I believe that you may not need a new arm board. What you need to find out is the pivot to spindle distance of the two arms. If they are the same, you're in hog heaven. What might be a problem for you is the difference in the weights of the two arms - if they are substantially different you may need to change the spring(s) or at least adjust them. Lastly, as I recall, the Oracle arm has VTA on the fly (or at least easily adjustible VTA. I don't recall the Rega arm having this option. Would you have to buy an add on adjuster? If its not important to you - its a moot point. FWIW, much as from an operational standpoint the Oracle arm is a PITA it is otherwise a good arm. Do you really think its worth the additional edxpense?
