This is a good quality belt but it is noticeably tighter and stronger than the two original belts I have, even allowing for their age. I read that Villchur took particular pains with the belt, so I think it is reasonable to be concerned about the differences.
I have ordered replacement belts for this turntable from other reputable sources with the same result -- and possibly the same belt. I suspect it is a metric belt that is considered a close match, not a replication of the original, inch-dimensioned belt.
I have no way to test whether the replacement belt holds the same performance specs as the original. The music sounds good, with perhaps a bit better bass and attack definition than my original belts, which are now some 50 years old. I am going to use this new belt for a while and hope that it does not stress the motor bearings.
