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?
Black Gyro SE / SME IV /Nagaoka MP500 / Elicit R / Kudos X2
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 RP6/Goldring Elite>Clearaudio Basic Plus
Synology NAS>Rega DAC>Pathos Classic One MKIII>Dynaudio Excite X12
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.
