Well there you go then , just enjoy your new toy.  Just one point , although it could be my eyes , but your tone arm looks somewhat high at the back end.

Absolutely loving the sound of the turntable. I'm very surprised at how good it is. I've ordered some red vinyl wrap to re-cover the plinth and bring it up to date a little. I'll post pics once I've done it.

Glad you are enjoying it.  Please don't spoil a lovely used item by "updating" it though.  If you want red you buy a Rega or Project!

RE: Finally!, bought a used TT Rotel RP3000

i understand the feeling about keeping it original, but it's not a "mint in the box" piece. it is showing its age. the cover is scratched and a bit of a mess. the surface of the plinth has a few dings on it, I would keep it original if it had been mint.

True - but I've not heard any amp (any price) with a dedicated phono stage that's less than adequate. You'll need to spend shed loads to improve on what's already there.

RE: Finally!, bought a used TT Rotel RP3000

So knocked out by how good this little deck is. 

It has no right to sound this good. 

Its a genuine 100 quid bargain. 

Looking forward to pimping it up this weekend.
