RE: Rega RP40 Anniversary turntable.

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.  :roll:

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.

RE: Rega RP40 Anniversary turntable.

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.

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 .
