Bet you can't wait. :grin:
Are you ordering the package or choosing your own cartridge?
Krell CD and amp, Michell/Rega/Grado record player, Hitachi and Sony tuners, Nakamichi cassette, SBT streamer, Sonus faber spkrs. Sony and Samsung BDP & TVs. Qobuz > iPad > AudioPro Allroom Air One
yep, getting the package with the Apheta cartridge. Auditioned as a package so going with another option seemed pointless really.
Excellent choice, enjoy................
OK, lets give this a crack..
OK, we're off and running. Apologies for some of the photos, it's been peeing down all day in London town so I've had to put the lights on...

Did you compare the rp8 against any other turntables ?
Thanks all for your kind words.
Alchemist, no I did not. The only other TT my local dealer stocks are Linn and I'm not keen on the styling.
Looks fabulous! I like the white phono leads, which look pretty serious compared to the weedy black items emerging from mine!
Not sure I'd be too confident actually playing a record whilst it is in that rack, mind you...
Thanks nopiano. Apparently they are 'low capacitance high performance' leads
agree the location is not ideal but my last TT lived there so I'm used to whipping the records in and out. Having said that, I might see whether it could sit on top of the lp cube...
I just notice this today, are those Herbeth moved by water...? Holy moly, those cables seem like water hose...! :grin:
The RP8 definitely sits right on top of the vinyl cube!
