Bloody hell solid, you'll be buying a P7 and stack of vinyl next.
You have managed during your recent twitterings to express my views on the rega sound better than I could. One of my friends, (yes I have some) always claims that that all rega boxes have a simple rule designed in, that being bugger the system, just listen to the music. If you would like a recording of female voice that will 'show off' the elicit see if you can find anything by Christine Collister, especially 'Love' on Rega Records. She is Manx, but don't hold that against her.
