Is anyone in or around London looking to buy a Rega P3 (2016 model) any time soon? I'd like to upgrade to a P8/Apheta or RP10/Apheta soon. The turntable is white, in excellent condition (usual minor polish marks on dustcover), with packaging, and can either be supplied; - stock with Elys 2 cart - £500 or - with Exact/Neo PSU/Tangospinner zirconia subplatter upgrades - £700 or - with Ania/Neo PSU/Tangospinner zirconia subplatter upgrades - £800 Let me know if you're interested, I have now updated listing with pics and prices. My preference is to sell with the upgrades. I could get more listing them individually on the ‘bay, but want to keep things simple! I’ll throw in the Elys as a backup if you go for one of the other carts. Collection from East London, can be demoed, or boxed up and ready to go. Thanks for looking!
Problem with a Rega P1 Queen edition. I have just tracked down a Queen edition turntable which had never been opened. I'm really pleased with the sound, especially having upgraded the cartridge. BUT after a few albums the plastic spindle at the top of the motor, the one which holds and drives the belt, works itself loose and comes away. The drive is then of course lost. Is this a common problem?
hi all, any members with thoughts on a mysterious buzz that has appeared when playing vinyl. Setup is Rega Planar3 with ortofon mm cartridge (new) and Project phono preamp going into exposure 3010 amp and out to Ruark Equinox speakers. Working really nicely, then I went away for the weekend (teenage son had friends round??). Came back, massive constant buzz on phono input both channels (all other inputs working fine). Buzz much louder than the music. really loud continous buzz. Not like an earth buzz. 1) Removed phono preamp, plugged turntable directly into phono input - very soft (obviously) but you can hear music and no hum 2) Retained phono preamp, disconnected turntable. Still exactly the same massive hum. 3) Removed l and r channel phone input from preamp to amp one by one. Buzzing disappeared from disconnected channel 4) Switched off power to preamp. Buzzing stopped 5) Replaced the leads connecting the preamp to the phono input of the exposure. No difference, still massive buzzing So at this point you're thinking - the phono preamp has gone, right? But no. I borrowed a different phono preamp and the noise was different, but still there, still much louder than the music. What's going on? Any brainwaves greatly appreciated, thanks!
