  1. Interesting observation. Before I had the I/O I had the PM6006 and while that was, arguably, a better, more equipped amp, the I/O phono stage, in my mind, is way better than the PM6006 I think the general consensus seems to be that the IO is a fine amp with a fine phono stage (for this level) and the move to the Rega P3 will yield dividends
  2. Further information: Pro-Ject Carbon Debut, around 1 years old, with stock fitted Ortofon 2M Red cart This was my first 'proper' turntable and I've loved it. Purchased brand new from major retailer in Melbourne Excellent player and in great condition. A few minor scuffs on the dust cover to be expected, but otherwise excellent. interconnects included. Selling as I'm upgrading to a new player. Happy to audition in inner-north Melbourne and if you're interested in shipping, we can work that out. Thanks Al
  3. I'd love to go the Bronze and I will shake the piggy bank to see if there's enough there for it.... if not, I am going to have to stick with the Blue for now. Thanks for the reply., It's nice to have an RP3 user give their feedback
  4. Thanks for the response. Interestingly I had a chat with one of the more reputable hi-fi dealers in melbourne and they said that even in store, some staff members insist on spacers when using Ortofon carts, but the fellow I spoke with was ith Roy Gandy and said they weren't necessary. I think for now I'll go the blue and possibly upgrade to a Bronze when I can afford it
  5. So, I am thinking about pulling the plug on a Planar 3, but have read some very middling reviews of the Elys 2 Cart that (can) come factory fitted. I'm also led to believe (and correct me if I am wrong) that the Rega isn't great for installing non-Rega carts and requires spacers. If the above is true, can anyone recommend a decent non-Rega cart that would suit the Planar? I've in the past been seduced by ortofon, and while I've found them good (Especially the 2m Blue), I don't have much to compare with Any thoughts appreciated Al
  6. Hey mate thanks for the reply At the moment I don't have the PS3 - I've got the debut carbon which is a fine player, but really tempted by the P3. Love the I/O fono stage. It's a cracking little amp.
  7. Morning everyone I'm currently running my a Pro-ject Debut Carbon (Ortofon Blue cart) through a Rega i/o, into wharfedale denton speakers. I'm thinking about upgrading the table to a Rega Planar 3, but wondered if the rega fono would be a good addition? Thoughts? Cheers Al

  9. Thanks everyone for replying to this thread, especially as I am such a moomin when it comes to cables. I've ordered some from a member on here and I'm looking forward to testing them out Cheers Al
  10. HI andy - sorry I should have stated that. around 5 metres each side (give or take)
  11. Hi everyone, I'm running my Rega I/O into some Wharfedale Denton speakers and it all sounds jolly nice, but I realise that I'm still using my QED 42 strand cable from a long, long time ago. I think that maybe I might get better performance if I upgrade, but wondered what I should be looking at. I spend a lot of time fawning over turntables and amps. but very little time around cables Cheers in advance Alistair
  12. Hey folks thanks for all the replies and interest. This has sold already Cheers Al
