  1. Aphex Twin: Come to Daddy - check out those kids, hilarious Depeche Mode: Songs of Faith and Devotion Spiritualized: Sweet Heart , Sweet Light (haven't ever heard this one) time to start spinning

    spare hour popped up!!! Aphex Twin: Come to Daddy....still brutal after 20 years, really enjoying the other tracks too. Second half of Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Poll
  3. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    This is next level wisdom! Sure, easy to look back and say 'why didn't I jsut start at the top?' after the journey....but at the beginning I didn't even know there was going to be a journey!!!

    and I updated his thread in the TT section. Surely we have to make this match work!!!!

    ask and you shall receive....black cart, MM phono, edwards belter belt....

    Thanks mate, I'll write that one down....enjoying the Denon 110 that was recommended for the Planar 3....but always great to know where the next step might be. That $700 price point is probably realistic for me, Ortofon Black etc or I could always start a WTB thread and there are so many no-longer-used carts by the gurus that I'd end up with something superb.

    Thank you Ross, fantastic read and very educational. Appreciated
  9. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    The main reason for this....is because our wives can detect new TT's entering and leaving the premises....but carts they cannot!!!! (I kid people, I tell my wife everything about my stereo and she claims she's had some of the deepest, best sleep just after I begin talking to her about them!)

    Mate, that is one seriously good buy....an Aria phono for $600!!!!. I hope a bottle of champagne was popped over that buy. Congratulations.

    Interpol: self titled 45rpm followed up by some... Depeche Mode Violator then Radiohead: A moon shaped pool
  12. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    Oh yeah! I’d do both if one came along at the right price.
  13. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    oh yeah, that's the other thing...for the OP....the RP8 surely must be next in line for a revision (Rega having done the Planar 1,2,3 in 2016 and the 6 in 2017)....so if you buy one new resale value could be a concern....but that's ONLY if you sell! She could be good enough for life

    They are a far bit of coin RRP in Australia I noted, I had a friend visiting the UK and they were around $2000 aud (after with VAT returned) and then you'd have to pay GST when bringing it in. We did have one sell fro $2300 with the Apheta cart a few months back.

    The new Planar 6 even, with all it's upgrades over the P6 reading the reviews you wonder how close to RP8 performance it is. For example....it's included PSU is the newer version than the RP8 and uses technology from the RP10.
