advice on old Planar 3
Ive had a Rega P1 for a couple years now and have always been surprised how good it sounds and have always been reluctant to upgrade until i could afford a noticeable step up, probably a P3 at least. However I had a real gumtree find yesterday and have obtained an older Planar 3 for just £15. Bought from a middle aged woman who seems to have had it in a cupboard for the last 10 years for whatever reason. I haven't seen it yet as i got a friend in the area to pick it up but he assured me it appears to be in very good condition and spins fine etc.
It is an early version with the S shaped arm, I believe this is the R200?
Does anyone have any idea how these older models compare to new ones, I'd imagine it is probably equivalent to a new P2 or something, but I imagine someone here has more knowledge or experience than i do as It was likely made before I was born!
