    Have no regrets with purchasing the Avenger last year. Will be with me a very long time. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the different Avenger models.

        I have the regular belt drive (upgraded to HRX pulley, so actually 3 belts). They didn't have the rim drive option around last year when I ordered it. I upgraded the tonearm and feet from the base model. Didn't do the mag drive. That is a very pricey upgrade.

        Yep. As soon as Colibri came back, I put it to work.
