Default Rewire Project RMP9 tonearm

I just bought a Project RMP-9XP and wish to rewire the tonearm with a better wire. Is there any suggestion? Would it be difficult to rewire a tonearm?

is the wireing faulty? and is it external wire or internal?
external is a lot easyer to DIY

i ask because DIY rewireing can sometimes coss hum /hasstle problems if its working atm ...

the cost off top class cable is high and most rebuilders only charge few quid extra labour

best wishes for now

There is nothing wrong with the original wire because it is brand new. I read through some threads and noticed that the rewiring can bring better effects, especially with those more expensive tonearm wires. In this respect, I look forwad to upgrade the original wire with a better one and that's why I look for opinions.

On page 2 of Percy catalog, it says:

"Acrotec: 99.99997% (6N) purity stress free copper wire from Nippon Mining, Japan *18ga stranded wire with a blue PVC jacket… $4.95 per foot (50'+ -10%)
*40µ (4.2Ω/ft.) copper wire with polyester varnish insulation. Many people believe this to be the best wire available for rewiring tonearms or any application given a sufficient
number of paralleled strands. For most tonearms parallel about 15 ccw wound strands of this superfine wire, or use fewer for ultra delicate applications, difficult to work with
but incredible performance… 85¢/foot. Deduct 10% for 100+ feet, 20% for 250+ feet."

I never tried it though.
