  5. Item: Rega RP8 TT Location: Brisbane, QLD Price: $2200 - firm Item Condition: Great used condition, Purchased May 2017 Reason for selling: Funding other Hi-Fi purchase Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ 3%) Extra Info: Relisted: was $2500 now $2200 In great used condition, as pictured. I've been using this with my Rega Elicit-R and a Nag MP-500 cart and it sounds ace! I've had this since new, Purchased only in May 2017. I upgraded to this deck from a Rega RP6 and I think it was a substantial upgrade. NO stylus/cart included. Although it is now boxed up securely in the original box and packaging, I would prefer local buyer/pick-up. Will consider posting (at buyers risk and cost) http://www.rega.co.uk/rp8.html A couple of minor things worth noting: 1. I think I mixed up the phono plug caps somewhere along the line when switching gear. So the screw-on connector caps (pictured below), I don't think they are the originals. They're gold/metal and look flash, yet they don't screw-on snugly, yet truly causes no issues in regards to making a secure connection to your amp or phono stage 2. I noticed a couple of very minor 'blemishes' on the front edge of the lid when I was taking pictures. I've tried to capture them clearly in the attached pictures (for full disclosure). Hopefully like me, you will hardly notice them. 3. There is some minor darkening/discolouration of the top metal brace, as occurs with all RP8/RP10s (as pictured) Pictures: Action shot: (cart, LP and counterweight not included)

  7. Hello everyone! I wouldn't be asking for help if I hadn't tried everything I could think of, but this is messing with my mind for some time now and I can't stop thinking about it, mainly because I either find a solution or I resign to listen to music with a background buzz. I also know there are tons of threads like this. Believe me, I read a lot of them and many of the things I tried were suggested on those exact threads. I also know that this could probably be fixed with a ground wire, but is taking the tonearm apart of a one month old turntable really the only option? Would it 100% fix it? I would like to avoid losing the warranty as much as possible. (HUGE READ AHEAD) I'll try to keep it as short as possible, but I don't want to miss any detail. I tried a mountain of things and still couldn't fix it, so I'm hoping some of the more experienced users here could chime in and discuss ideas/share how they solved issues like this one. My system is not the best, mainly because I'm using a home theatre receiver, but this shouldn't happen nevertheless: TT: Rega Planar 1 w/ Rega Carbon (1 month old) Receiver: Marantz SR-73 (early 90s) Speakers: B&W DM305 (mid 90s?) First of all, I want to point out that I'm not sure if the issue was present since I acquired the Planar 1 or if it developed in the mean time. I honestly can't pinpoint when I noticed it, but it was maybe a week and a half ago. The issue is fairly simple. I have a high pitched buzz that I can hear when the volume is at 25%+ which is not loud at all. I'm writing this post listening to music using this exact setup, directly below my son's bedroom, dial is precisely on the 25% position and you can't hear a sound upstairs. House does not have the best isolation either. Anyway, the buzz is there and gets louder when I turn the volume up. It also gets louder when I position my hand next to the cartridge or the back tip of the tonearm. For the ones who don't know, Rega does not use an external grounding wire like most manufacturers. Now, here's what I tried doing: Move the TT away from the amp. To the front, sides and back. As far as the wiring lets me; Disconnect any other piece of equipment from the receiver leaving only the speakers and the TT; Change speaker wire (the one I was using was crap, now I upgraded); Unplugged TT from power outlet; Changed power strip/plugged directly to the wall (receiver); Tried it with headphones; Tried it with different receivers; Moved rooms AND floors; Tried setting up the amp and turntable on different bases; Unplugged everything connected to a power outlet on the same room; Turned off the lights. Nothing solved it. NOTHING. It didn't even make it better. And yes, the TT doesn't need to be powered (or the power cord connected) for the issue to arise. Also, the buzz is constant and does not happen on any other input. Now, here's what helped a little bit: If I plug a RCA -> Jack cable to my aluminum phone, the buzz is reduced a bit; If I plug the turntable power cord directly to the receiver (it has a power outlet on the back), the buzz is further reduced. BUT, it is still there and it's annoying, mainly if I want to listen to music using headphones. Now, this is where things get worse (I guess). A friend brought his Pioneer PL-100 and Pioneer vintage amp to my place and we set it up on the exact same location: Rega connected to his amp -> Buzz Pioneer PL-100 connected to his amp -> No buzz So, issue might be on the turntable or my place, right? OK, let's take the turntable and my amp to his place. Different house, different area of the city (~3 km away). We got there, connected everything up and, you guessed it, same exact buzz. So, case solved, it's the turntable! Well, not quite. The hi-fi shop I bought it in is a few meters away from his place so we decided to go there. Once we got there, we connected my receiver, my turntable and my headphones. Guess what, not a sound. There was a bit of hum, but only when the volume was raised above 75%. And it was not the same type of sound. At my place (and my friend's), it's a high pitched hiss/buzz mixed with a low one. At the store, there was only the low one, which is not half as annoying. And only noticeable at 75%+ volume, which I'll probably never use. Btw, the electrical installation at my place is 15 years old. His is a year and a half. Both are grounded as far as we know, we're in Europe in case that helps (not the UK). This has got a lot bigger than I thought and I think every piece of information needed is there. What would you do? I can't enjoy listening to music and I don't want to throw the €270 spent on the Planar 1 down the gutter. I can't even use the warranty because they'd probably test it at Rega and say there's no issue, just like it happened at the store (I watched the test being done, I listened myself). So, any ideas? I'm at a loss and I can't get my head off of this, I could use some help.
  8. Hi all, Just swapping out the cart on my Rega P25 and as the rca cables are not marked as L and R or color coded I though I would meter out the cables and mark them. This is where the problem starts. The cart indicates that Red and Green are the Right channel pair and White and Blue are the Left channel pair which I assume is an industry standard. When I meter out the the cables they don't seem to match. The red wire at the cartridge end goes to the centre pin of one lead with 1.2 ohms resistance, The green wire goes to the outer of the opposite rca (I assume the outer is the negative) with a resistance of 1.2 ohms. The white wire goes to the centre pin of the other rca with 1.2 ohms resistance and the blue wire goes to the opposite outer with 1.2 ohms resistance. Not sure if those resistances are high or not but it would appear as though the left and right channels are not matched to the same rca connector. Obviously I can change them on the cart when i connect it up but I guess my main question is, is this the way it is supposed to be or would i be better to swap the green and blue so that the channels are paired on the on rca? Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Cheers Matt.

  21. Hi All, I thought I would post a story about my Rega TTPSU, the wall pack noise and the solution I am embarking on... So after a couple of weeks living with my RP6 at the start of the year, I noticed an audible 'buzz' coming from behind/within the side board I call a stereo cabinet. I did a big search on the web to see what could be causing my issue? The first item of help I located was a way to fix the buzz that a TTPSU causes through the speakers, due to no/poor earthing on the case thing.... Great, a little earthing cable test did reduce the noise floor through the speakers, but this fixed a problem I didnt know I had, and the other buzz continued. Boo! I did some further isolation testing etc.. and determined it is actually the wall wart or plug pack supplied with the TTPSU that was the culprit. Even when removed from the power conditioner and plugged directly into another power point, the buzz was there, it didn't even need to have a load to make it noisy. Oh well, looks like I needed a new wall pack from the local Rega supplier, $55 and a few days later problem solved.............. Nope! The Gotcha moment: plugged the new pack into the wall, had a listen, and boom (or more to the point, Buzzzzzzz) The noise was less, but still there, in a brand new Rega wall pack. It went back to Rega for a refund, and I continued to live with the buzzy cabinet (which of course the cabinet amplifies the buzz) A few months on and many nights researching the options, again and again.... I have determined there are very few replacement 24VAC plug packs available in the market, and none of them appear to be 'low noise' 'Audio friendly' options. Only a couple of places seem to make an audiophile power supply for the humble Rega TTPSU, so I had to work out which one would be the best value for money as I could only do this once. The options I found were all foreign production options, usually made to order and with no real way to test them or review their performance without pulling the purchase trigger. The most comfortable option I could find was a custom PSU from Graham Slee Products, though the price was outside of my resources at the time. Swagman Labs (eBay seller) produces an option, but then recommends the upgraded version for audiophiles, again the price was creeping up there and still no comfort as to the result...... what was the boy to do? the buzz it is loud enough to creep into the Sennheiser HD 650 listening sessions these days. Well the solution. Contact a local Audio Electronics specialist and get him to test the power supply and the TTPSU to see what could be done as a local manufacture, thats what! So I had a chat with William from The Factory Audio, here in Canberra, and after testing he has recommended an upgrade to the internals of the TTPSU and make some electrical modifications to allow a lower voltage, higher precision , lower noise plug pack to serve up the requisite AC to the turn table. He indicated the TTPSU had only just enough capacitance to do the job, it was taking about 32V from the plug pack and reducing it to closer to 20V for the turntable so was wasting heaps of life on heat etc.. So upgrading the TTPSU and using a better plug pack was a better option than producing a separate PSU with all the requisite conditioning and control, only to use the TTPSU to do the last little bit. The best part: The price was within my tolerance, and is produced by a Canberra local!............... So hopefully by the end of the week, I will be able to further report back as to the performance of the upgraded/adjusted TTPSU. I am hoping to be able to report back that the unicorns and fairies have now been released from the RP6 in equal measure and the air and space around instruments and singers is life changing............ but if not, that the Buzz has gone and I am listening to vinyl with reduced noise. Thanks for reading this long post, enjoy the rest of your night Dan

  23. Hi All, I'm looking for some advice on a Phono preamp, I dipped a toe in the water of vinyl several years ago and bought a Rega RP1 which has done well for itself plugged into the built-in phono stage of my PM8005 Amp. I am a stereo fence sitter with a foot in both digital and analogue but my record collection has ballooned to 50+ records and I find myself turning to vinyl more and more when I want to listen to a specific artist or full album. So time to take a plunge and upgrade. So far I have settled on a P3 (I seem to like the Rega over the more analytical options) and an Rega Exact to tone down the potential warmth of the P3/elys 2 standard option. Trouble is I am buying blind when it comes to Phono amps having no practical experience. What level of investment should I put into this to match the rest of the equipment without having a weak link or over investing. Any suggestions would be appreciated as Phono stages are surprisingly difficult to research compared to the the more exciting components of a stereo. Also, if I really need to check out anther TT happy to moved away from the current Rega plan Current Gear for analogue, AMP: Marantz PM8005 Speakers: Vienna Acoustic Bach HP Amp: Schiit Vahella 2 HP: HD650s Thanks TwoDaysLate (Mike)

It's a lot of amp for the money, and sounds appropriately rich and powerful. Comes with an Eric McChanson step-down, as it's a 220V model."

  25. tem: Genuine Rega Tungsten Counterweight (120 Grams) Location: Sydney Price: $60 Item Condition: 9 Perfect working conditions. Reason for selling: Not use. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only The stock Rega stainless steel counterweight has a diameter of 40mm, weight 98g. The Heavy Tungsten Counterweight 33mm, weight 120g. If you use a cartridge which is heavier than the Rega's, when you try to balance the cartridge on a Rega P3-24/RB301 turntable/arm combination (or the other Rega TTs & arms) , you’ll soon find that the stock stainless steel tonearm counterweight must be pushed back all the way to the end of the tonearm. The heavy version of the Tungsten counterweights that Rega manufactures might just be what you need. The smaller profile is especially handy if you use an aftermarket spacer/arm height adjuster to adjust VTA (stock Rega tables/tonearms, of course, do not permit VTA adjustment and company founder Roy Gandy eschews the importance/significance of VTA adjustment entirely). Anything above a 2mm increase and you’re likely to find your dustcover sitting on the tonearm counterweight and, therefore, won’t close properly. If you happen to be one of those people who plays records with the dustcover closed, this will be an impossible situation. I never play records with the lid closed, but I live in a dusty old Victorian terrace, so I like to keep the dust cover closed when I am not using the tt. At any rate, the heavy Tungsten weight allows the counterweight to be much closer to the pivot point of the tonearm. Some audiophiles claim that results in appreciable sonic benefits including tighter, deeper bass and improved tracking. I won’t lie about that. After listening for a long period my ears can’t really detect that much of a difference, I can only detect slight improvement. It could be the limitations of my ears or even the RB301 tonearm itself. I’d caution that if you intend to pursue this upgrade specifically to achieve sound imporovement, you might find yourself disappointed. But if you’re doing it for more immediate, practical purposes such as those I’ve described above, the heavy Tungsten counterweight might be useful. If nothing else, it certainly looks cooler! There are certainly better products out there like the Mitchell TechnoWeight and the superb Groovetracer Counterweight. They are so much more expansive too.
