The phono stage is paramount! Have tried with the RP3, and it is essential to get the best possible!
is the Brio R's phono stae ood enough for the RP3?
Synology DS212j > Rega DAC > Rega Brio R > Rega RS1
Rega RP6 / Exact
Chord Chameleon Plus / Odyssey 2
Panasonic TX-P50 GT50 > BDP110e > Yamaha RX-V 667 > Rega Vox
Leema Elements won the HiFi Choice blind test in their latest issue. That's the one for the RP3! Trust them!
Yes, but what are costs...?
Steve allready have a amp with a perfect capable phone stage!
If he was going to star from scratch that would be a perfect starting point...
Rega RP3 / Goldring 1012gx # Synology DS213 > QED Performance USB > Rega DAC > QED Performance RCA > Rega Brio R > Supra Classic 2x4mm > Dynaudio Excite X12 and some times BK XLS200 MK II
SBT > G&BL teflon line RCA > NAD 3020i > Supra Classic 2x4mm > Monitor Audio RS1
I've owmed Rega Phono and listened to the Elicit phono. Neither are close to the Elements. It's like you owned different record players. RP3 has a LOT of potential.
