Rega Upgrade advice - any P7 users on here?
I'm looking for a bit of advice on some upgrade options. I currently have a P3-24 with an Elys 2, which I love, but am now looking to get something that raises the bar a little. My first thoughts were to add the matching power supply and then a new cartridge, but I'm now considering waiting a little longer and part exchanging it in for something like a P7.
What I want to know is, has anyone had experience of these two models, and is the upgrade a worthwhile one over my initial plan to add the PSU and a more expensive cartridge? It seems to be very difficult to find a dealer that stocks more expensive turntables, so a demo may involve a fair amount of travel, and some idea of performance would be good before I arrange this.
Also, how good a cartridge can the P3-24 handle before the limitations of the rest of the deck negate any benefits?
I listen to a wide range of Classical music and the rest of my system will very shortly be a Yamaha CDS2000/AS2000 Cd player and Amp with ATC SCM11 speakers
Many thanks in advance!
