Hi, have a Rega RP3 with the default Elys2. Thinks it lacks edge. Remember old Ortofon on Thorens giving a much more exciting sound. Which is the best cartridge for Rega RP3 without having to adjust the arm height?
my Rega dealer represents the brand in Portugal for almoust 30 years, he knows TTs like the back or is hand and he represents brands like:
- Well Temptered Labs
- ORG/MOFI/ Speakers Conner/Naim Label
what i want to say by posting the brands that he represents in Portugal is that he knows the vinyl market, and in times that the vinyl was about ti die he stood tall and didn't give up!
I've bought my RP3 with a Goldring 1012 gx because he said it was the best performance in a VFM ratio.
My sound is clear, with a good and present bass, detaild and smooth! I felt in love with vinyl all again.
Rega RP3 / Goldring 1012gx > Rega Fono MM V2
Synology DS213 > QED Performance USB > Rega DAC > QED Performance RCA
Pathos Classic One > Inakustik LS 1102 cable > Dynaudio Excite X12 and some times BK XLS200 MK II
SBT > G&BL teflon line RCA > NAD 3020i > Supra Classic 2x4mm > Monitor Audio RS1
I wanted to post a link but couldn't, put in the google

Thanks! Think I'll have to go and audiition a couple of cartridges. The closest place would be Copenhagen, Ortofon is Danish and is probably available everywhere. It is too much money to buy via post order and have to setup.
Hi, keep us up to date please , about your audition , I dont like Elys 2 because of inner groove distortion so I am looking for some other cart.
I Mac , Leema Elements amp-dac , Rega RS5 , Chord cables
Squeezebox touch ,Leema elements phono stage , Rega P3-24 , Ipad 4
A few of my records, maybe 2-3 display some inner groove distortion but have over 200 do its odd its only in a few records with the Elys 2
i am quite happy with the Elys 2 but I have been playing it a lot do would be interested in what cart you get next as mine could be due a change soon thinking about an ortofon blue
ATV3 > Rega DAC > Rega Elicit R > Rega RS3
Rega RP6 / 10x5 / MP-110
Go for a Goldring 1012gx, you wont regret it !
You could save the money on the first time...
Hi, stevebrock what is your setting of the tonearm for elys 2 ? (vtf,bias ) according to rega 1,7g , I just can't get rid of that distortion on inner grooves
It is really annoying
one of this days i want to talk to you about your V-Link 2.
If the rega cart is set up using the 3 bolts, go to vinyl engine and download the stephenson and baerwald protractors and try them with 2 bolts. You may prefer one of them.
The best overall sound balance i had with my p3 was using a denon dl110.
I'm using the recommended of 1.75g - it's only on a few records though
The Goldring 1042 was great with my P3-24.
Got it after recommendations from this very forum.
Only when I Inspired the turntable did I change to a MC cartridge. ( I stil have the Goldring, looking for a home
