RE: RegaRP6 vs Clearaudio Concept vs VPI Scout

I didn't do anything inappropriate to lower the price Innocent.

The VPI was a demo, my A19 and the Focals were from the same dealer and he is a very open-minded and business-oriented  young fellow.

He thrown me a hook by giving me the Moon phono stage, "just to see how well it goes with the Benz Micro cart". He was 100% right, but if I buy the Moon too (also an exdemo) I will have an 600 amp and a 1000 phono stage. Is it resonable?

I bet that Scout/Benz cart is superb

Enjoy it!I 

did you demo the RP6? if so what cart was installed? How did it compare to the VPI?

I am pondering over a Gyrodec, but the VPI has aroused some interest\

Its not entirely unreasonable Smile

A phono preamp of this quality will always allow for any future cartridge upgrades you might plan. That is a very nice 'front end', always pays to get a quality source sorted first.

I agree totally I bet that set up with phono/cart/deck sounds really good!

Would you say its a warm presenttion or more in-yer-face

Had to change my 10x5 to a Nagaoka with the my Elicit's phono, with the Nagaoka its just right.

However I am pondering over investing a bit more in a nice dek (gyro) but as I said above the VPI has caught my eye

  That looks like being a tough call.

               Sound will be the major factor.

RE: RegaRP6 vs Clearaudio Concept vs VPI Scout

Both stunners indeed and, if you stick the Technoarm A on a Gyrodec SE, about the same price (in the UK that is).

Auditioning would be the key - not too sure where you could hear them both in the same place though.

To my mind the JWM arm would swing it for me although size might be a issue for some.  Oo er missus... Smile
