So I've got about £800 to £1000 to spend is it worth replacing my TT and ttpsu for something like rp6 or an other.
All advice welcomed

i went fron an RP3 to RP6 and it was an immeditate impovement - so imagine it would be from your P3
but I am sure therw will be others along to tell you to get something else.
However the Rega is simple to set up etc etc
ATV3 > Rega DAC > Rega Elicit R > Rega RS3
Rega RP6 / 10x5 / MP-110 > Rega Aria Phono Stage
My worry with going to the 6 is that I already have the rega ttpsu and that it would not be that much of a step up
after reading reviews and other forums, but it is one I will demo.
Maybe I also fancy something different, Mitchell Technodec, Thorens

Go for an Inspire upgrade package for your p3-24. Then add a good phono amp and a moving coil cartridge
Pioneer tv + LX85, Sony HW15 Proj, Cyrus DAC XP+/Mono X300/CDXTSE2/PSXRx2, Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Baby Grands and Maestro centre, B&W CM1 surrounds /PV1D (9.1), CA BD751, Virgin TiVo, Inspire Rega t/t, Benz Glider MC, EAR 834P phono amp; Slee Novo Headphone Amp.TQ Black.
Cheers I followed it but no one has ever mentioned the tecnodec and also unsure about s/h.
As well as I've already got the rega ttpsu so not sure how much improvement rp6 will be for
the money.Unless anyone knows a decent dealer in Coventry area for s/h mitchels
or clear audio etc. Always fancied an lp12 but would have to be s/h and there is my
problem,don't mind fiddling to setup but don't want one off eBay if you know what I mean.
That looks nice and worth investigation cheers
Coventry Dave had a Gyro on a sale a few months ago. He may be able to fill you in on the Tecnodec as well.
Michells are always a good bet. I might consider a Roksan Radius 5 as well if I were you.

I was browsing the Origin Live website last night and was thinking what works of beauty their turntables are. I bet your Aurora sounds as good as it looks?

It does that DIB. I can heartily recommend anything Mark produces they are all stunning.
I am thinking of going for an upgrade soon though. Quite fancy the traditional style ...... with a lid!
Well when my 6 numbers come up tonight I think Origin will be my first port of call.
Looking at the prices of their full set-ups, I reckon a lid is about as much as I could stretch to at the moment!

I have never bought Origin Live stuff from new, always second hand but again always direct from the Origin Live shop on Ebay. Keep an eye on it because Mark is pretty good at putting up trade-ins and you know they have been fully checked over by him.
