Rega RP6 missing part and hairline crack

The cartridge arrived today, so I unpacked the RP6 for the first time, and after much confusion, I realised that the aluminium hub is missing.

I've also discovered a hairline crack in the paint work next to the top brace. 

Not such a happy birthday then.  |(

Oh dear - I dont think a hariline crack is a cosmetic imperfection!

Was it mail order ?

Dont get this at all . Why rant on here , surely you rang the dealer who sold it to you in respect to getting it replaced.

RE: Rega RP6 missing part and hairline crack

I've actually just emailed the dealer.

And the reason I "ranted" on here, was that I was in the middle of a "help me" type post, thinking that I was doing something wrong, as there is a distinct lack of information in the supplied booklet.

My wife actually discovered there was a missing part from watching a you tube video,. otherwise I would still be none the wiser, hence the tone and title of the post changed.

Thanks though.

RE: Rega RP6 missing part and hairline crack

Like stevebrock I couldn't have waited that long to open the box of a 'new toy', but whatever.

I hope you can get it sorted swiftly. Smile

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

Thanks guys.

It will have to be a total replacement though, so I hope they still have some left. :pray:

I am.

Not sure what to do, but the sensible thing would be to get a refund I suppose.

Surely if they haven't got a like-for-like component, then they are obliged to source one. Or maybe that's the conditions of buying with a heavy discount. Still can't believe you didn't check the TT long before the cartridge turned up.

I'm not sure what they'll do, will just have to wait until tomorrow to see what they suggest.

It did arrive only last Thursday, so it hasn't been hanging around for long.

Plus, I wanted to open it on my birthday, which is today, as I thought it'd make the day a bit more special, but unfortunately, it's just fucked the day up instead.
