  1. 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.
  2. Over the years I gathered a fair bit of info on my now long gone Rega gear - Planet II, Radio R, Elex, Mira II - and on lots of other models and variants as well. I was a bit - well, alarmingly - obsessed with the rough industrial clamshell aesthetic! Info includes reviews, circuit diagrams, circuit board layouts, Rega service notes, interior and exterior photos, user manuals, and some notes and info from forums. Not a huge amount ~ but if anyone similarly obsessed and/or suffering and can make use of it, PM me and I'll send you it all in a zip (130MB). Here's a very nice Red Planet (found here https://www.flickr.com/photos/ippinkan/) - sadly Rega didn't go further with colour. Sadly I didn't think of repainting mine!
  3. Further information: I have 8 new Littelfuse 251001 1A very fast acting pico fuses. These 1 amp ones are used in the Rega Radio and Radio R. Some years ago, a power surge in a lightening storm caused the two in my Rega Radio R to blow, thankfully saving the Radio. I had to buy a pack of 10 ... hence now there are 8. My Rega gear is long gone, so hopefully someone else can make use of them as spares. $5 will be donated to Stereonet. Photos: Littelfuse_Fuse_251_253_Datasheet.pdf
  4. Hi all. Hoping some of you gurus may want to weigh in with some advice / direction please; I have an RP6 with Exact cart, upgraded with Groovetracer sub platter and Little Belter blue belt. I love it - rhythmic, engaging, detailed - so much so that my LP12 has been relegated to the soon to be sold shelf in my storeroom (controversial, I agree). So, now considering upgrade paths for the RP6 I'm considering one / some of the the following; Groovetracer Delrin plater (approx $700), RB 330 tonearm (also approx $700), NEO PSU $449 Fono MC preamp $449 Ania MC Cart $999 Alternatively, I could sell my existing RP6 for (say) $1000 and pick up a new P6 TT w no cart (that already includes the NEO + RB330) for 2K, or with a new exact fitted $2399. or with the Ania MC for $2799. So basically I could have a new P6 for a cost delta of a grand. I have my own ideas on what would give the best improvements / cost but would really appreciate recommendations from you all on what path would provide the greatest sonic benefits. FYI - the RP6 plays directly through my Plinus 9200 in-built phono stage. Thanks in advance. Cheers, Brian

  6. I'm looking to complete my dad's hifi system so he can once again enjoy his extensive record collection. He's been without a turntable for the best part of 20 years but his medical state means he is fairly housebound now and music is a large part of his recreation these days. His system is by no means spectacular but the 90's Jamo Concerts, Denon PMA-720ae, TU-1500 (thanks for the advice everyone!) and DCD-520ae are a lively combination that are definitely a step up from your average department store bookshelf scenario. My question is this: What would be a suitable turntable in the entry/$500(ish) range that would be easy enough to use and sound reasonable? My current thinking is something along the lines of: Rega Planar 1 Pro-ject Essentials III Denon DP-300F His collection is basically 99% LPs so changing speed is not really a big deal. Stylistically it's primarily Classical with a handfull of hot jazz and folk. Any suggestions welcome.
  7. Further information: I purchased this turntable new less than a week ago. I intended to keep it but there is no space to set it up properly in the area I keep my system. I’m selling it because it is unfortunately too impractical for me to set it up elsewhere or change the furniture around. The turntable was used once on the first day I got it. Everything is in working order and in as new condition. I also have the box, manuals etc. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  14. Item:Rega Exon pref exon3 or exon(2000) Price Range: 500 negotiable each Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: prepared to pay for shipping from Australia or anywhere in NZ
  15. Further information: The Rega RB300 tonearm is well known to members of this group. I have owned this new since 1989, had it mounted on my Thorens TD-160 Super, & have performed the following modifications/upgrades/enhancements on it. - silver internal Litz wiring (from memory Cardas) - Expressimo Audio 115g "full moon" drop counterweight - improved bass reproduction, tracking, musical detail, resolution & shifts tonearm resonance to the "optimum" 10 Hz. (The original drop weight, there have been many copies since) - Expressimo Audio "VTAF" (Vertical Tracking Angle on the Fly) which allows fine VTA adjustment due to the variability of record thicknesses, without compromising stiffness, secured by original nut - Separate ground lead with mini banana plug (original was grounded through the earth of the RCA plugs) - 2 x 1.5 metre lengths of Furutech FR-alpha S22 Oxygen-free Copper (OFC) tonearm lead, which retails for $85 a metre (total value $255) (connected by 15cm of original Chord Chrysalis phono tail, which is hard wired to the internal Litz cables) - Terminated by a pair of locking WBT110 Ag silver plugs, retail AUS $88 each (total value $176) - Last 2 upgrades done in 2018 All working well. My reason for selling is that my Lyra Skala's stylus recently packed it in after 900+ hours, & am planning an upgrade to an Etna, plus a Rega RB2000. Selling price takes into consideration recent upgrades in the phono lead & RCA plugs, however, please feel free to make reasonable offers. I will post anywhere in Australia for a flat $20, on top of the selling price. Overseas customers, please check Australia's Post's website (www.auspost.com.au) for a quote from 2222 to your country.

  16. i put this up a while ago and then made the mistake of listening to it again — I lost my bottle and decided to keep it. But the reality is I put a lot of effort into my digital system and hardly ever listen to vinyl these days, so it's back for sale. It is a cracking TT in very nice condition and with all the obvious upgrades done. It needs to go to someone who will appreciate it. If you're in the market for a for a new Rega (up to, say, a P6) buy this. With this cart and upgrades it's a bargain and you'll have a bucket of money left over for vinyl.

Items are based in the south East of Melbourne and could possibly be dropped off as well as they need to be gone ASAP. Keen to see how low some of the prices go, however please don’t be offended if I don’t responded for ridiculous offers. Looking for someone locally, however have the boxes for the TT and therefor can ship if no local buyers are found. 1. Project 2Xperience SB Turntable (Walnut) including Ortofon 2M Cartridge 2.

  23. I’m keen to get some views on what would be a worthwhile upgrade from an AT LP120 turntable with an upgraded Hyper Elliptical stylus. I’m keen on staying with MM cartridges and looking to spend up to $2k. Amp and speakers are high quality but I am unsure if the extra spend would make a demonstrable difference. Keen on some views and suggestions on TT’s that would be worth considering.
