RE: Rega RP6 missing part and hairline crack

Well I must say you have been extremely unlucky, out of the many people on here & vinylengine who bought into the RP6 cosmetic seconds (and have been pleased) I guess there was bound to be at least a few unlucky punters.

Moorgate really should of done better with there customer service as this is who your contract of sale is with......NOT Rega.

Hope you get sorted anyway.

RE: Rega RP6 missing part and hairline crack

Unlucky, yes, but in a way I'm kind of pleased.

I think I'm going to get something a little more interesting looking, probably used, and maybe even in need of a little work.

I know nothing about the workings of a turntable, and for someone who has always loved vinyl, that's pretty poor. It's about time I learnt.

I don't want to be thrown right in the deep end, but I would like some recommendations of quality, yet interesting looking turntables, that can be had for around the £400 mark.

If I have to go a little higher, I will, but design is nearly as important as sound and build quality.

I want people to enter my lounge, and immediately be struck by the deck, I want it to be a focal point, a real centrepiece.

Please, if you see something for sale, that might be up my street (not literally), please let me know

RE: Rega RP6 missing part and hairline crack

Very interesting looking project.

I've heard the Linn Basik's aren't that great, and they are a little, ummmm.......basic.

Do you think they'll take an offer of £400?  :grin:

They can only say no  :shifty:

It was an axis not basik sorry but gone now.

lots of interesting tt's on there

Before I bought my rega I was tempted to get an lp12, well eventually by buying various parts and

putting one together, but they still go for silly money.

How about a black magic from inspire £540, don't know what its like but looks nice

Was looking at this, as it's very close to where I live, but the sellers feedbacks worries me a little, and to me, it looks just too good, like it's been varnished.

Have you got a link to the Black Magic?

No arm though, and as good as it sounds, it doesn't have the wow factor for me. If (and that's a very big if), it stays relatively low, I might go for it.

Probably go for silly money thats why I stopped looking at lp12's and they get very mixed reviews.
