Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Well I finally got home, excitedly unpacked my Gloss White RP6.....................

Just 1 side so far of Roxy Music  -  Avalon

Sweet Holy Jesus how does this sound so bloody good, I am speechless with the bass, soundstage, clarity & detail - everything is so defined!

Sorry to bore you all about it but Im chuffed to bits!

The Brio R & RS1 doing a mighty fine job!

Sitting with a RP3, The Police Ghost in the machine. CD players are seriously in need of a fix to reach the LP presentation of music.

hi Steve

let me ask you this:

you had the RP1 and made a upgrade to the RP3 and it was a major step up! 

Is the step up from the RP3 to the RP6 in the same league as the above?

 

Best REGArds!!!

This is in a different league - I am truly blown away by it now!

What has surprised me most that my Rega amp/speakers are really showing what they can do now!

I know Roxy Music album Avalon really well, but the RP6 has revealed lots more detail that I havent heard before it truly is excellent!

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

PS Dealer was telling me today that the new Elicit R amp is going to blow most £1500 amps away - completely new phono stage within as well.......allegedly they have been taking there time with it to get it right!

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Always interested to hear about good great gear!

Out of interest, did you take a listen to the Clearer Audio Concept TT?

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

In a word no!

I knew the RP6 would not dissapoint! I have only ever had eyes for the Rega deck.

Anyway it was too much of a bargain at £749 with an Exact cartridge, apparently they are 2nds from Rega (minor imperfections to the plinth - well for the life of me I cant see anything wrong - it sounds mint so well happy)

i feel that already with my RP3/Goldring 1012gx Dyns X12 combo, i've eard lots of spekers in the end of the Brio R and none like the x12. 

I'm going to demo the RP6 with the Dynavector 10X5. 

And i've my mind set at the New Elicit as well, let us se the price tag first, something arround 2000€ for sure...

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Well at that price guess you can't go wrong!

Where did you manage to source it from at that price if you don't mind me asking?

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Seems Rega have unleashed a load of RP6s to dealers!

Moorgate Acoustics, Sheffield £749 with Exact - Picked it up today, while I was there had a quick listen to some Totem Dreamcatchers........lovely speaker......however when I put some bassy stuff on like Massive Attack they really lost it more than my RS1, then listened to some RS3.....crikey they really are nice, as soon as some 2nds come up Im pulling the trigger on them (2nds=again slightly cosmetic imperfections)

Nice one, Steve. The RP6 sounds like the dogs...
