Did you compare the rp8 against any other turntables ?
Thanks all for your kind words.
Alchemist, no I did not. The only other TT my local dealer stocks are Linn and I'm not keen on the styling.
Looks fabulous! I like the white phono leads, which look pretty serious compared to the weedy black items emerging from mine!
Not sure I'd be too confident actually playing a record whilst it is in that rack, mind you...
Thanks nopiano. Apparently they are 'low capacitance high performance' leads
agree the location is not ideal but my last TT lived there so I'm used to whipping the records in and out. Having said that, I might see whether it could sit on top of the lp cube...
I just notice this today, are those Herbeth moved by water...? Holy moly, those cables seem like water hose...!
The RP8 definitely sits right on top of the vinyl cube!
