I have a roksan tabriz arm that has been fully serviced and all new bearings fitted and is as good as new.
My dilemma is do i find a suitable turntable for my tabriz or go for a rega rp3 or 6 with their new rb303 tonearm included.?
Personally I'd stick with Roksan turntable as the Tabriz will be sure to suit them, an arm like that deserves the best.
I have seen a Roksan Radius (without arm) going on Ebay at the moment.
Should be an ideal pairing.
You do not mention a budget though.
Origin Live Aurora Gold+Illustrious Mk2 arm+Zyx R100-02/Stello CDT200+Stello DA220 dac/Tom Evans Groove Anniversary phono amp/Tom Evans Vibe preamp/Linear A power amp/Acoustic Zen Adagios/Chord cables/Oppo 105EU.
I had that particular radius model before , so an alternative t/t is required. Budget £600-£1000 inc cartridge.
In that case flog the Tabriz and go for a second hand Michell Gyrodek, or indeed the new Rega Planar 6.
And if you do sell the Tabriz let me know, please.
As a Radius owner myself can I ask what it is that you find unsatisfying about the deck? I'm always half-contemplating selling mine and trying something else. Not because I dislike it but I know there are better players out there.
Roksan Caspian Pre amp, Caspian Mono Power amp x 2, NAD M51 DAC, B&W 805 Signature, Roksan Radius turntable, Denon-1713UD, MF phono & headphone amps, PS3, Mac/AE/Apple TV
Will keep you in mind when i've decided which path to take.
Thanks, sorry if I was slightly presumptuous.
