The Carbon does not seem to have the output that my Lenox deck had so volume needs upping a bit. Meaning I want to hookup the turntable so I can use it on the receiver speaker zones or just a pair of passive speakers. Powered speakers for your budget or amp and separate speakers? I’m writing because times made me part with my system (oddly enough, I preferred the Systemdek/Naim combination to the Linns, but I digress…). Should I just eventually get a separate tuner? I will post here my impressions , as soon as i ‘ll receive the TT, so other people with the same worries will have another point of view about it. My P1 arrived today & my concept 20s & Stands along with the Rega Fono on Tuesday. The sound is ok but not brilliant. … all part of the compromise …:-) ) I’m in the US so the Rega Planae 1 comes more expensive, so how does it compare to a Fluance RT85 or a Debut Carbon ?

Exactly, the named sockets are there as a general guide only, they can be used for just bout anything. Looking at Richard’s list above – solid summary – and wondering about two things: (1) what is your opinion on this turntable paired with the ELAC Debut 2.0 6.2 in lieu of the Q Acoustics 3020i – hearing the former will offer more “authority” – but I believe are less efficient and (2) I may want to listen to FM radio on my system as well. Once upon a time I had a Linn LP-12 and before that, a Systemdek II. Hi Paul – only the ‘Plus’ model has the built-in phono stage (I don’t recommend the Plus). Sounds incredible and the white version with the acrylic platter looks like something Steve Jobs would have designed if Apple made turntables (that’s a compliment). This shopping feature will continue to load items when the Enter key is pressed. Tweezers or a hemostat will allow you to (re)move it. Thanks for your kind words, Sergey. If you have any concerns – have a chat with your dealer. I have a question if you wouldn’t mind giving me some advice. The problem too with modern tuners, building into all-in-one systems, is the generally nasty tuner-on-a-chip approach which limits sound quality. Thank you so much for your lovely reply, and for answering so quickly! The Audio Technica LP120 and Pro-Ject Carbon Fiber come ready to go. sorry Hence, you could keep the Muso for the TV and that will give you your digital streaming for now: Tidal, etc. Hallo! The RP1 is different from the Planar 1. Generally, the more expensive the turntable, the better. Also does it matter which way round they are inserted, since they seem the same at either end. I take your point about the REGA so will enjoy what I have until I upgrade etc. Look at Cambridge for a lower priced amplifier too. That said, I may have lucked out on what I like to call my “re-entry system”. Even the platter has a higher mass and enhanced flywheel effect for improved speed stability. The Rega brio and Audiolab 6000a look like serious contenders but don’t have tone controls which due to my age I need to be able to tweak the sound. Hi Richard – not a problem. Hi Paul, I’m in the states and just getting back into vinyl. Here is how everything is connected: Behind the Francis vocal was a tight guitar strum, thought most of the song that sat alongside a series of cymbal taps. Thanks a lot for the extremely helpful reviews. Hi Paul, Talk to any turntable beginner about anti-skate and most will think it involves lots of ice somewhere or other. Would you recommend sticking with a new Riga 1 with the aforementioned set up or upgrade the turntable to the Riga 2? I’m looking at the Cambridge Audio Topaz AM10, but wide-open to suggestions. So I guess that means my budget is closer to $400. Until you get to that point, there’s plenty of solid state kit that will serve you well. I’d have to disagree with those dealers you mentioned. Hi Steve – The Planar 1 will only be a side-ways step. Like many who have arrived here I’m looking at getting my first turntable and find myself swayed towards the Rega Planar 1.

I’d improve the cartridge first, then the phono amplifier. Hi Catrina – if you need the added toys that the Lenco offers, then look towards the Lenco sure. It’s the best budget turntable on the market and, later on when you have the cash, can serve as the front-end for a much more expensive and capable system.

I mentioned this to my other half and they’ve gone and bought me a cork and rubber mix replacement mat, but from looking at it, the new mat is 3mm and looks to be a bit thicker than the stock felt mat (not exactly sure how thick that is.). Hi Richard – for the CD player the best option is a transport/DAC. I decided to use Connie Francis’ original pressing Sings Bacharach and David (MGM) from 1968 in which she fronts a large orchestra. In terms of cables? How does the Planar 3 measure up to the Project The Classic for instance? Also, if you do live in the USA, then Rega might not offer the best value. Fantastic! The other contenders were an Audio Technica LP120 and a Project Debut Espirit SB Beatles Edition. Is it better to have a more adjustable carbon arm (alternative 1)? I’m just trying to figure out if it’s worth it at the moment or should i just focus on new speakers first, for example. Yes, the Planar 3 would be an excellent buy. After that, I hope to open a service for a sort of subscriber-type approach. I have a Cyrus 8AVS2 (circa 2007) amplifier and Q-Acoustics 3010i speakers. For vinyl play, the best approach is a dedicated 2-channel system (i.e. What’s the priority with this suite of purchases? All that said, I have looked a bit closer at the AM10 and I’m coming round to how it looks a bit more. Yes, I ship these turntables with hinged dust cover included. Be very cautious buying from this seller! That’s where the Rega’s cables need to be connected. I understand that having a separate phono stage is preferential but my thinking with the Denon was that I could used the integrated phono stage in the interim and then fork out the extra £90 for the Rega Fono later down the line, when I have the opportunity to sneak it in . Removing the manual from the packaging is a genius idea. Thanks a lot got the answer, I went for the Rega let’s see what future upgrades await us. Do you think this one is the best under the 400 £? As I noted I currently have no amp or speakers so need to focus on getting these in place before upgrading the turntable. Although the Carbon has a better cartridge, the Planar 1 has a better arm and an easier upgrade path. If sound quality is the thing, then go for the Rega. Do you think a REGA could lead me to a higher level compare to my Technics (especially this perticular model) ? Apart from the phono amp and speakers, you’ll need speaker cables (from the amp to the speakers) plus a pair of interconnect cables from the phono amp to the amplifier. If it’s a minor source of music then go for that and use the cheapest Audio Technica cart with an elliptical stylus. If you’re looking for the long term, then I’d recommend going for the ‘2’ and upgrading the rest when you can. Piano was both rich and full with a new air of lightness about the notes which now seemed to dance politely across the wide and broad soundstage. Finally, a few miscellaneous questions: Thanks for help on this and actually putting me onto Rega & Q Acoustics for that matter : ) all down to your review. First of all thank you for the great reviews you provide, I must have spent hours here in the last few days. This item cannot be shipped to your selected delivery location. Perhaps that should be the next component to upgrade? 1) i see ,also, that rega’s wire its not so good as i could exspect. Have you asked Rega’s customer support for confirmation? I’ve never used these speakers before, Tim. Is it still worth buying the turntable? The source is the most important part of a vinyl system. I advice would go directly to the Rega Planar 2 and go updating little by little? How much do you have to spend? Only downside (imo) is the lack... First decent turntable so nothing to compare to. If it was £450 I probably wouldn’t have given it a second thought and £600 for the amp is definitley pushing it just a bit too far right now. But it was definitely a weird start. If so, by how much? What would you suggest ! The garden side of that has been on the list of things to do for a while. So, I’d recommend taking the plunge. I am a university student who recently got into vinyl (especially classical music) with a limited budget. Which infers you have different hi-fi components now. Plus a Rega Fono phono amplifier: https://www.amazon.com/Rega-Fono-Phono-Preamp-Converter-x/dp/B006GE9XQQ/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1546712022&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=rega+fono&psc=1&smid=A3PKSUAVGUP5IE. Then I’d advise upgrading the rest, as and when you can. Yes, the Planar 3 would be the best choice. This is a built-in phono amplifier. Onto your other point yes, you are right to notice the thickness of the mat which may change the sonic signature. I’m building a vinyl system and already have the Teufel 40 MK2 speakers. Bottom line and reflecting on everything you’ve said…? I thought I might be able to plug this into an Onkyo / Topaz amp to tick the Bluetooth box for a low price…? At present, I would say my amp (13 years old) is the weakest link in my system. Platter is crap, not flat, no motor speed control, crap quality RCA cables direct attached with no way to replace them, crappy finish on the plinth, really weak hinges, poor build quality dust cover... the list goes on. One obvious solution is Bluetooth which the Yamaha features – correct me if I’m wrong on that one? I want to add a turntable to my current set up which includes a Cambridge Audio CXA80, a Cambridge CXN, a pair of KEF LS50’s (wired, not wireless. Secondly, I was looking for a REGA PLANAR 2 review but I can’t find any. The rest of my set-up is a Cambridge Audio 640 A Azur V.2 amp and a pair of Spica TC 60 (difficult to find now as the company went out of business some years ago). Also I’m not sure what cables I would need so if you could recommend that would a big help too, since I am a bit clueless! Cartridge as well. I also got QED Optical for the muso to TV and working great! Any relation, I’m wondering? It works OK, but there is a pulsating noise that comes from the motor area whenever the unit is turned on, and I don't know whether it is normal (It shouldn't be). This should not stop working after one year. I’d be looking for something like a Funk Gett! I was all set to grab a Planar 1+ until I read your companion review. I just boutgh this turntable and, as you suggested, Rega Fono Mini A2D. You can buy amplifiers with built in Bluetooth to save cash – the excellent Cyrus ONE is an example of that. It’s just the amp that’s up in the air. If you’re buying your first turntable, the Rega Planar 1 is one of the simplest, most user-friendly options on the market. I feel like I’ve spent my last three evenings on here! You may be charged a restocking fee up to 50% of item's price for used or damaged returns and up to 100% for materially different item. In the meantime, do you think it’s worthwhile to get a separate supply power like the NEO PSU and perhaps also upgrade the cartridge of the Planar 3? Thank you. Haven’t tested the theory myself, though…, In addition to the above, Rega does say this, “Arm height or V.T.A adjustment can be a controversial subject. Around the House: It offers great value and sound quality. My question is it worth upgrading to the Riga 10mm glass plattern would The upgrade give an improvement in sound quality? So i’ll order today a rega planar1 and cross my fingers. A head amp is a good idea, Michael. They aren't kidding when they say the focus was on the tonearm, the only part of the TT that isn't garbage and it is not worth $600. Based on your 3020i review it seems you give them a little edge on the originals. I think I’m going to go for the Planar 3. If CD is a priority then a low cost transport and separate DAC is a far better solution for you. If the Internet, streaming and Bluetooth is important then a low cost all-in-one is ideal. Yep, the Planar 1 should be fine with those and the Rega Fono would be an ideal fit, I reckon. To enhance sonics, I’d but an external phono amplifier and plug that into your Aux sockets on the back. Or if you’d suggest another around that price? Aesthetically it was a bit more banged up that I thought it would be, which wasn’t huge, but the tonearm, oh my, there was definitely something wonky with that. They have obviously assumed that I could just hook it up to the speakers that I use in my home office (Harman Kardon Soundsticks II) to play music from my laptop, so I need a bit of assistance in making that happen. Please correct me if i am wrong. I will be pairing them with Klipsch “The Sixes” (https://www.crutchfield.com/S-pSQKbjdghGX/p_714SIXES/Klipsch-The-Sixes-Walnut.html).
