If you click on 'Google' (on the link) and use a password & username, that'll get you into Flickr. Once located pic and reduce to whatever size you need then right click on 'Properties' and highlight and copy the 'Address (URL)'.

Back on the forum reply click on the 'Tree' symbol and paste the 'Address (URL)'. Lastly click on 'Insert'. That should do it. Smile

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Do get a bit disconcerted when dealers start banding around how good this product or that item. I tend to take a dealer's view with a (large) pinch of salt, at least till I've had first hand experience.

LOL!!  It was paired with the PMC Fact.3 speakers, and the new RP8.  They were actually using the new Aria phono stage as well.

Don't blame you!  The Brio R is a cracking amp.

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Excellent!  Not only am I happy for your but I'm also happy because I ordered an rp6 a few days ago and it's my first good quality piece of kit. I've never listened to it and based the decision on reviews and forums. Now I'm even more excited! 

 

Steve,  you seem very pleased with your Rega setup,  are there any aspects that you would consider changing?

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Yes by changing to RS3 speakers!

when I collected my TT had a demo of some Dreamcatchers, they sounded beautiful but as soon as I played sone massive attack/electonica they started to lose it a bit with the bass which surprised me as my RS1 seem to cope better, then the RS3 were connected up - I knew straight away these were the speakers for me, very very musical with lovely bass - I was quite taken in by them! It was the familiar Rega sound so I'm waiting for some 2nds to come up as they said they will be available soon - just minor cosmetic imperfections. 

BTW the speakers were demoed with a Brio R, Rega DAC and my MBP via optical into DAC files were ALAC.

Also still looking for the imperfections on the RP6s plinth but for the life of me can't see any!

That's the answer. Same with me and Arcam and Leema.

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Have enjoyed reading the your last few threads on all this.  I was all set on just sitting tight and asking Santa for an RP3 as my debut into turntables.  All this RP6 talk though has really got me thinking!  Divorce could be seriously on the cards here - was happy to wait but I see there are still Rp6's available.  Did you get the 10% discount?  When I add to cart shows at £799.

 

Have you spotted the imperfections - sounds like they must be minor?  I really wanted black which they don't have (red, white or yellow) - think I would go white.

RE: Rega RP6 WOW!!!!

Still can't see any imperfections on my Gloss White!

Well I was quoted £799 over the phone with the Exact Cartridge! When I went to collect it from Moorgate Acoustics they just charged me £749.

BTW I'm really happy with it - it started to open up now and not quite a week old!
