I wouldnt like to comment on the Gyro as I have only had Rega TTs, I am more than happy with my RP6.

The RP8 might blow the £1200 budget though!

Why not the Roksan Radius 5, since you already have the arm?

I thought the gyro was exactly that? That's what I'd buy, after checking availability and cost of the correct arm board.

doh! Missed the Tabriz bit diddle I. 

Regas ,any of em ,dont come within a country mile of a Gyro imvho . Suggest trading in the Tabby against a s/h sme iv ,if I was the OP. Cracking TT/arm combo.

Editeroonie.

Just noticed the budget ,lol. Okie dokie , track down a Gyro complete with (more often than not) a RB300 nailed on it. That'll do ya short term. Flog the tabby and save up for a sme ,be it a Series iv or 309.

I have a gyro se with a techno arm on it  and can say i am more than happy  excellent!    They are built like battleships so would not dismiss second hand!

 

 

There is a good se on 'that site'  with what looks like an audio origami arm (£500)  and a k9 cart .  2 days to go low start and no bidds yet!

 

Ah,just noticed its in Scotland and pick up embarassed

Bear in mind other costs if £1200 is the budget.

 

RP6 798

Cartridge 250+

Phono stage (Rega Fono MM 2) 200

Groovetracer subplatter 200

total 1450 less about 350 for selling the Tabriz = £1100 with £100 for LPs.
