Why would you spend so much on a glorified RP3, when you can get a RP6 for £549?
Just an observation, not a dig anyone.

Cart is still in the hands of our beloved postal service, unfortunately.
RP6 is still in it's box too. Maybe tomorrow. " />
awww shame - Dynavector 10x5 on Monday for me!
This is in stark contrast to Rega who've just used the chasis, arm, bearings... from existing models and added a couple of Union flag stickers. Ludicrous.
If it aint broke then it dont need fixing!
Agreed: Nothing against Rega but a TT between RP3 and 6 is hard to justify, but as yet no-one has heard it - it grates a little with me.

Hmmm, its a celebratory product and for someone who hasn't yet purchased an RP3, it might be an option given that it includes the £200 TT PSU as well as the tweaked cartridge and the new drive belt. I sincerely doubt it has been aimed at existing RP3 owners. I certainly wouldn't consider it.

Hey Steve. Just read your post regs sub platter. Found out what the edited word was. Good edited or edited is going on edited ?.
Think you may like the Dyna byraway.
GT Subplatter - the noise floor has gone?
I was a little sceptical but pleasantly surprised
Indeed. I strongly recommend the Conquest . It comes with 4 legs and three knobs to twiddle with. Of course I nearly forgot the BSR autochanger.
Bit pricey nowadays if you can find one .
Jolly G. I hoped it was a positive edited. See how I saved the software some hard work then.
Edit ,just read your sig. Groovybabytracer.
