  1. Rega armboard for Michell Gyro/Orbe decks. Never been fitted, as new. Comes with 3 bolts, no other accessories included. £44 posted.
  2. Looking for some advice from anyone who's heard both - hopefully there's someone out there! I'm planning to upgrade my TT next month and had convinced myself to skip my original plan of buying the P8/Apheta 3 package and going for the P10/Apheta 3 to avoid any future upgrade temptations. I've now got the option of buying an older RP10 with the Aphelion (1) cartridge, for pretty much the some price as the newer model with the lesser cart (but still better than my current P3/Ania). What would you do?! My assumption will be that the Aphelion will elevate the older package to being better - it should, as that was a very expensive cart. But perhaps the newer turntable will close that gap up a bit, as it's supposed to be quite the jump from the RP model. Also wondering if the Apheta 3 would be more forgiving with not-so-great vinyl - more than half my collection is battered 80s-90s fare. Sadly it won't be possible to demo against each other. I've never heard the RP10, but I have heard the newer P10 against the P8. Both phenomenal tables - the 8 probably the better value given the cost difference, but the 10 a further improvement in sound if you don't mind the premium.
  3. Looking to buy a Rega Planar 8 if anyone is looking to sell. Can’t collect as I am in Guernsey in Channel Islands.
  4. Following the purchase of a Lyngdorf TDAI-1120 my Rega DAC is now surplus to requirements. This 5 Star rated DAC was purchased new from PJ HiFi in Guildford it has been used in smoke and pet free home. Excellent condition (save for a small mark on one side) and still has the protective film on the fascia. The unit has had little use over the years until lockdown which increased my music listening. Original box, packaging and instructions. I have this device listed elsewhere. Looking for £250.00. Does not include postage. Collect from Guildford area welcomed.
  5. Rega RP6 (Red) and TTPSU - Boxed. A wonderful turntable in excellent condition but sadly not getting much use at the moment. No cartridge. pics -->> https://photos.app.goo.gl/j1FqEwyfWuFmBvQM8 £650 posted. I can either post or you can collect (Southport) but you cannot demo due to Covid.
  6. Hi. I'm selling a Rega Planar 1 with only an hour on the table. Condition is like new and fully boxed. This is the latest version of the Planar 1 from Rega. Bought new only a month ago. Comes with Rega Carbon MM. Looking for £225 pickup from Southport. Pics --> https://photos.app.goo.gl/ywgfkrn6VSznLhKH6
  7. Selling my Rega Io. It’s so good I just had to go further and picked up a Brio. Brilliant little amp. In as-new condition with remote and original packaging. Has caused lots of positive waves since release. 30W into 8 ohms. Outstanding phono stage. Will upload photos tomorrow. PM me for further pictures. £280 including insured delivery. £260 collection from Bury St Edmunds.
  8. Fabulous, flexible phono stage with separate MM and MC circuitry. Sounds superb with MM carts and stunning with MC carts including of course Apheta. Excellent condition, see photos. Bought ex-demo from Harrow Audio last year; I've picked up Andy's lower mileage one for the hell of it so this is surplus to requirements. £525, Wamtastic discounts for established Wammers. Near Melton Mowbray. UK buyers only, UK shipping included in price. "The MM input uses low noise bipolar input transistors configured as a compound pair. There are two separate power supplies for each channel and further sub power supplies for each of the low noise input circuits. Nichicon FG electrolytic capacitors have been used in critical positions throughout the power supplies. Polypropylene capacitors have been used in the signal path and equalization networks. Discrete circuitry is used throughout the signal path ensuring full control of the circuit design. The MC input uses parallel connected low noise FET’s (Field Effect Transistor’s) configured as a compound pair. The use of FET transistors ensures there is no bias current flowing in the cartridge coil so as not to upset the delicate magnetic geometry of the cartridge. The MC input has the provision for selecting resistive input loading of 70Ω to 400Ω and capacitive loading of 1000pF to 4200pF. The input sensitivity can be changed by 6dB, via the back panel"
  9. Excellent condition, great PSU, was standard fit on RP8 until the Neo was launched. Nice upgrade for earlier Rega turntables. £145 or insulting offers. Location nr Melton Mowbray. UK buyers only please; UK P&P included.
  10. Hi all, I've now taken the plunge on purchasing a Rega Aethos, so my beloved Rega Elex-R is for sale. Collection from London E16 preferred or we can arrange a courier if interested. It was bought from Billy Vee hifi in November 2017. I have the box, packaging and remote. In addition, I can provide: - secondary Solaris remote - Rega Ear headphone amp - Rega Fono MkII phono amp £750 for the lot, or £650 for the Elex-R on it's own. Any questions, please just ask! Some links below; http://www.rega.co.uk/elex-r.html https://www.whathifi.com/rega/elex-r/review
  11. £675 or close offers. Attractive discounts available for established wammers, see in-store for details, terms and conditions apply. Collection Leicestershire (or Cumbria if you can wait) strongly preferred, drop off/meet up en route possible by prior arrangement, but can ship at cost as all original packaging is present and correct. I bought this cracking turntable and cart from Analogue Seduction. A big step up from my P3. Still in stunnng condition, only the lid showing signs of light scratching any turntable owner will be familiar with. I've tried to photograph the plinth from all angles so you can't see the scratches it doesn't have... I haven't played much vinyl for the last few years - just getting back into it now hence upgrading - so this is a low mileage example; I reckon a couple of hundred hours tops. Can't find the owner's manual but all original packaging is present as you can see. Dynavector 10x5 is a high output MC cart so suitable for MM phono stage. Has a well-deserved reputation for digging deep into the detail of a track.
  12. For sale - upgraded Planar 3 This started as a stock Planar 3 from 1979 and the only parts remaining are the plinth, lid and motor. I know this deck from new, and sold off the R200 arm to put on a RB300 I had. Once the modding bug started the capacitor and resistor got changed, the bearing and sleeve got replaced with new, a new platter and subplatter from Fidelity Designs were fitted, and an AT VM95ML fitted. Oh - and a white Rega upgrade belt which improves stability a lot. The deck has been set up with a Dr Feickert alignment tool to Stevenson geometry. I'm selling as a whole or parts because I've also upgraded my Systemdek with an Audiomods Classic and Audio Note IQ cartridge and that just beats it out - but I have to say not by much. I'm offering it for sale in various combos. Obviously I'd like to sell as is but will also do: Rega as it stands £510 Rega plinth and RB300 arm £250 (original subplatter and glass platter, black belt) RB300s alone are fetching over £100 now and plain Planar 3s with that arm are over £300 on ebay. If you wanted to discuss it without the AT please drop me a line. I'd prefer collection from the Manchester area
  13. Selling a Rega Brio. 2017 full version. Immaculate condition. Includes original box, packaging, manual remote and power cable. You all know how good these things are. Selling on behalf of a friend who simply doesn’t listen to it enough. Price includes delivery. This will by ParcelForce 48hr tracked uninsured. Please contact me for other options as these may cost more. I can provide more photos and a video of it working upon request. £490 including delivery. Thank you.
  14. Wanted - a Rega sleeved nut. These now seem impossible to find, I've contacted several dealers and even "bought" one off ebay that never appeared. Or if you have an unused VTA adjuster I'll buy that as I can use the arm (upper) part the reverse way and use it as a locknut. I'm fitting a RB300 to an old P3 and the plinth is thicker (before I get advice on the evils of VTA adjusters!) - I know I can buy a VTA adjuster but I really don't want to pay £25 for a nut!
  15. I bought this brand new from Cymbiosis when they were still based in the centre of Leicester, probably around its launch in, I think, 2000. A fabulous deck offering silly value for money then and now. I've never played a huge amount of vinyl due to the "faff" (that should cause a few wammers to splutter coffee all over their computer screens) vs CD but have always refused to be without a turntable for the sonics and sheer ceremony of it. It's in excellent condition apart from some rubs to the lid most of which should polish I have mostly polished out and I'll try to do that before re-photographing. I lent it to a friend for the last twelve months... she cossetted it in situ but it did pick up the marks on the lid from being transported to and from her place (at my place it always lived in a converted HMV cabinet with its integral lid so the Rega lid was as new when loaned). It's also unlikely her old record collection has seen a "proper" record cleaner so while the table runs smooth and sounds fine (to me) I can't vouch for the condition of the cart. Different cart arrives soon courtesy of wammer. Collection only though, as ever, by arrangement I can drop in a diamond shaped territory between Melton Mowbray and Kendal and taking in Birmingham, Stoke, Manchester, Preston in the west and Sheffield, York, Bradford, Leeds, Harrogate in the east. Happy with cash on collection but I'm looking for a firm sale not an audition... £275.00 please. EDIT: photos show wrong cartridge: fitted is an Ortofon 510 Mk2 as per thread title. ________________________________ Borrowed blurb For over twenty years the Rega P3 has been the favourite high performance turntable for the music loving public, having a beguiling blend of classically clean looks, high performance and amazing value for money. This latest version carries some new innovative changes in design, which make it without doubt the highest performance and musical P3 to date. Just some of the features include an ultra low mass micro-fibre plinth laminated with highly rigid phenolic resin laminate. The P3 motor assembly uses the very highest quality synchronous motor found in turntables five times the price of the P3! The motor is itself controlled by Rega's innovative new electronic circuitry, which results in this already low vibration motor running almost totally vibration free. The platter is hand crafted from floated plate glass 12mm in thickness. This makes for a superb platter material as it has few resonance problems, is extremely flat and has good mass. The P3 carries arguably the most famous tonearm ever produced, the legendary RB300. This tonearm will never be found wanting for performance and will make cartridges work very hard to provide you with astonishing quantities of musical detail.
  16. My faithful minty Rega Fono II up for sale pre-eBay. RRP £200. Lightest of polishing scratches on front panel all but impossible to photograph. Original packaging.
  17. Selling an excellent Michell Gyro SE, here's what's in the offer: - Michell Gyro SE in great conditions. According to the label with the new Michell logo it should be one of the latest Gyro SE version. It doesn't have scratches or visible marks. - Rega RB 250 Doesn't need introduction, classic arm with almost infinite upgrades possible - Original Box not in a perfect shape, but still does its job perfectly - Michell Rega Armplate suitable for RB250, 300, 600 arms and any variants (Origin Live, Moth ) - Michell Rega Tonearm VTA Adjuster suitable for RB250, 300, 600 arms and any variants (Origin Live, Moth ) - Ortofon MC15 Super cartridge it was there when I bought it, so you'll get that in the bundle too Why Am I selling it? After dreaming for a Michell Gyro for years and after many researches I finally bought this SE a while ago. I set it up and I was super excited but there was something missing. After a couple of days I realised that I did prefer the GyroDec. Shame on me for not realising that before, so luckily I found a GyroDec and I'm putting this one for sale. I would have keep it otherwise. Can I ship it ? Even though there's the official box, I'd rather not shipping it, it's available for pickup in Central London. How much for it ? I'm asking for £ 1000 or near offers
  18. Selling my Rega R200 tonearm including detachable headshell. These were manufactured in Japan, originally came with Rega Planar 3 turntables in late 1970s and early 1980s, and are now much sought after. As the photos hopefully show this one is in excellent condition. Mechanically all works perfectly, including its antiskate/bias mechanism. Let me know if you need any further information or better/further photos. Would like £150 or somewhere near that.
  19. Rega Apollo MK 1 CD player in excellent condition with remote. Finished in black with original box etc lots of reviews on this player and superb sound. £250 plus shipping uk paypal ‘gift’ option preferred. I’m in Bracknell if you want to hear it first or collect it instead of posting. I bought this fine player from Radiant Red a few months ago. It has worked faultlessly but I have now upgraded to a Cyrus CDi so it is surplus to requirements.
  20. Great condition, this neat little Rega phono stage has been used with my Michell turntable where it was neatly tucked away on the top shelf of my stand. This is the original model and pre-dates the version with the USB port. Bought new by me from Tavistock Audio in 2011. The dealer said it couldn’t be beaten without spending close to £400 and I think he was right! I’ve now replaced it with a newer Rega model but there’s precious little between them. It has been totally dependable and quiet, with generous cable length on the power supply to keep it well away. Almost mint, it scarcely looks used. In one picture it looks like the paint has rubbed off the casing but it’s just a reflection. Original manufacturer’s packaging included. Ideally for collection at Kegworth but I’ll post carefully at cost if required. (Scheduled for Ebay later tonight, auction from £25.) Wammer buy it at the Show Price:- £50.00 with 10% to the Dog’s Trust.
  21. Good evening. Came across a good second hand deal on a rega saturn. I recently bought a k3 amplifier and don't know if they are going to play together. Any advice?
  22. So since moving house to a bigger house and loosing my dedicated music room nearly 3yrs ago my kit has lay dormant. Apartfrom my Squeezebox Touch and Mdac used in my office with my Sehmnheiser HD590's. Sold my Arcam Alpha amp which I bought myslef second hand. I bought my self a pair of Sonos 1's for the lounge as we're semi detached. No more more compromises though! I'm considering selling my Sonos play 3 and 1 of my Sonos 1's in addition to my MDAC for fund purchasing the Rega Brio Amp which I believe has a decent headphone output? My Squeezebox would connect to the amp via analogue and my music is on my NAS in Flax format. My speakers are Dali Monitor Menuets on custom design stands. What do you reckon to the proposal, would the Rega amp fit well with the Dali's and Squeezebox? How much do you think the Mdac is worth on as new condition with the remote? (Black model) Thanks in advance guys & girls it's good to be back :)
  23. Thanks for your help sourcing a belt, the Rock is now sounding pretty good with a new Goldring 1042 stylus. There are a few of remaining issues I'm hoping you can help me with. Firstly, the subplatter seems to be running too high, meaning he belt doesn't stay on when it's on the lower 45rpm pulley position. I've taken the height adjustment screw as far anti-clockwise as it will go and pushed it down pretty hard onto the bearing, but it's still high. The height adjustment screw seems to be captive in both directions, is this as it should be? The Rega RB300 seems pretty sound, but the arm lifter (lowerer?) is no longer going all the way down when dropped, stopping just below the armtube. This means that the stylus is sometimes skipping on discs which are less-than-flat. Is this something I can fix myself, or is it a return-to-base or elsewhere service job? Finally, is there a consensus as to what main bearing lubricant is suitable? Many thanks, Dr. Matt...

  25. Hi I got vinyl for Christmas and have just taken myself to my music room to listen. Fired up the turntable (Rega Planar 2, 25 years old) and it seems to be dying. Platter turning at maybe 20 rpm. I don't really use it much but it was ok maybe 6 months ago. I googled to see what I could do but what I found online didn't match what I can see. Everything on mine seems to be sealed underneath and I can't see what can move up top. There doesn't appear to be any rubbing noises - it is just slow Anyone any ideas at what I could look at to get it going again? Is it likely to be dead? If so and I want a few-times-a-year turntable what do I look at? I escaped redundancy a few weeks ago but expect to be caught in the next round, in a year or two, so trying to save pennies. Any thoughts would be most welcomed :-) Oh - Nick Cave's 'Skeleton Tree' and David Bowie 'Blackstar' btw Damian
