  7. Hi,I recently discovered that the stylus on my Rega Exact cartridge is bent. So rather than replace the cartridge with another Rega Exact (even though I receive a 20% discount off the price of a new cartridge), I have decided to upgrade my cartridge and would appreciate any suggestions. There are not a large number of hi-fi stores in my area, so demos are out of the question.I am running a Rega RP6 with an RB303 tonearm (stock standard with the RP6), Rega Elicit R amp and Monitor Audio Silver speakers. With the Elicit R, I am limited to MM cartridges; however, I believe that I can run a high output MC cartridge through the MM input. My music tastes are varied, with vinyls ranging from Otis Redding, to Simon and Garfunkel, Cold Chisel, Fireigber, Van Morrison, Eagles, Bee Gees, Steve Nicks, Fleetwood Mac etc.Cartridges I have been considering are:- Ortofon 2M Black (although some people state these are overrated)- Nagaoka MP-500 (apparently selling for more than they are worth)- Goldring 2500- Dynavector 20X2H (high level output MC, which I believe will work on the MM input of the amp)- Grado Refefence Platinum 2I am not tied to any of the above cartridges, so any feedback or recommendations are most welcome. If you could also include your reasoning for certain recommendations that would be appreciated.Thanks,Gareth
  8. Item: Rega Ania MC cartridge Location: Point Cook VIC Price: $650 Item Condition: Near New Reason for selling: Trying something else. Moving to Ortofon MC. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: purchase in Feb this year. I would estimate that I've played about 100ish records since I've purchased so most likely around 80 hours give or take. Mostly played new records only. This is my first cart into MC and found it a huge jump from MM. It was used on my Rega P7 turntable with the RB700 tonearm which sounded very detailed. The cart is pristine and barely broken in. Anyone thinking of making the jump to MC, this is where to start. Comes with the original packaging and can provide a copy of the receipt for warranty piece of mind. Cart has been place back in its original packaging. Can be sent at buyers expense.
  9. Item: Rega Dac Location: Melbourne, Inner Northern Suburbs Price: $450 Item Condition: Mint Condition including original box, manual and clover leaf power cable Reason for selling: My Sons Downsizing his system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Selling on behalf of my Son. He purchased it new from CAV around 2012. Fantastic English made Dac that utilises 1 Wolfson Dac per channel. This is one of the most musical sounding digital products I've ever heard. Photos:
  10. Item: Rega Saturn-R CD Player/DAC Location: Melbourne Price: $1950 Firm. RRP$3699. Donation to SNA on sale Item Condition: Excellent with remote, manual and original carton for safe postage at buyer's expense if necessary Reason for selling: Too many players. Need to sell this or Leema Acoustics Antila Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: Current model which has become an industry standard in its price range, encapsulating all that Rega has learnt while producing players and DACs renowned for their musicality. This model builds on the reputation of the earlier Saturn (which I also own and would be happy to sell) and exceeds it for information retrieval, timing and build quality. This is partly due to power supply advances and can be felt by picking up the machine. The Saturn-R also doubles as an exceptional stand-alone DAC with a comprehensive set of digital inputs and alternative filter settings, all remotely controllable. It can be used as the heart of an audio system with separate digital sources and as a high spec CD drive feeding alternative DACs or digital amps via its array of digital outputs. On top of its sound quality, this makes it a bargain, even at the new price. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

Reason for selling: upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Rega RP1 in excellent stock condition. Barely used, only selling to fund an upgrade. Please note; some people have issues connecting regas to their amps/phono stages due to their unique earthing/grounding topology, please do your research or come and demo with your own amp if unsure. Thanks! Tom. also listed on FleaBay. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. Hello to all you wonderful people in Stereo Net land. Total newbie here and this is y first post so please be gentle. I have recently purchased a Rega P25 and it came fitted with an Ortofon 2M Red, but also came with a Rega Exact. Based purely on the price bracket of the two cartridges I would have thought that the 2M red would be taking a step or two backwards from the Exact. I haven't had any time to play around and start changing as yet but I'm sure that there are people here that will be able to impart knowledge and wisdom on this subject. I had a bit of a search to see if there was any existing topics but they all seem to relate to cartridges in the upper range. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

  19. Item: NEW Rega Elicit - R Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: AMP SOLD ELSEWHERE Item Condition: Brand new, unopened box, delivered yesterday Reason for selling: Buying a Naim all in one. This is a new replacement item. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: In December 2018 I bought a Rega Elicit-R for my use in my living area. I soon realised that I would be better served having an all in one unit that included a DAC and Streamer. I was able to buy the initial Rega Elicit - R as an open box special and got a great price. The amp looked new and worked perfectly. However, after advertising it here on Stereonet I was packing it up and found the box contained a manual - that indicated it had been sold before!! The local retailer has been terrific with support and has delivered me a brand new unopened replacement Elicit -R yesterday. I am going to pass this new item on at the price the first amp cost me. (I would appreciate it if it was bought for personal use not flipping). I would much prefer local pick up in Melbourne. Nice performance summary by CAV; Rating at a very understated 105W RMS into 8 ohms, Rega's in-house designed power amp stage is set to pull the carpet out from under your speakers and make them do things you never thought possible. This has two Sanken Darlington Bipolar Transistors in the output stage which are rated at 150 watts each ... if this were a Japanese amplifier it would be rated at 300RMS as that is what these are capable of. Our local Audio Designer Gary Cawsey points out that these are the best output devices in the world ... none of those cheap Hitachis or Toshibas that proliferate elsewhere. With the Elicit-R playing Keith Jarrett this amplifier immediately sounds far more expensive than it is. There is that solid spatial portrayal and sense of the presence of the instruments that we are accustomed to with amplifiers with an extra decimal place. Still a definable Brio-R character though with a fullness and solidity that takes the edge away, but matured without the rough parts that tell us that a Brio R is still less than two thousand dollars. The Elicit-R is a very grown up amplifier. Good balanced review in plain language, http://www.audiophilia.com/reviews/2016/9/24/j027nrfz2howy3zvaklg5heqh9io1l Pictures:

  22. Item: Rega Rx1 Bookshelf Speakers - Walnut Location: Bentleigh Victoria Price: $1300AUD Item Condition: As-New Reason for selling: Baby on way.. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash preferred. Other means considered. Extra Info: These are brand new not used. I bought and shipped them from the UK when we relocated to Melb in September 2018. I wanted a second set of speakers for maybe a sitting room stereo. Now I need to get rid of them to free up some space and cash. I will post some actual pictures of them, but for now i have just added the ones from the website. Beautiful UK made speakers. As with all rega gear they are top quality. Shame to let them go. They come with these cool snap on snap off magentic covers, as can be seen in the photo with the black ash finish. I have seen these advertised new at carltonaudiovisual for $1799. So I reckon this is a pretty good deal at $1300. If you have any questions or want to inspect, please sing out. https://www.carltonaudiovisual.com.au/rega-rx1-bookshelf-speakers.html http://www.rega.co.uk/rx1-loudspeakers.html The RX-ONE’s can be used on stands, a sturdy shelf or mounted directly on the wall via the RX-ONE wall bracket (sold separately). Imaging and bass response can be tuned by adjusting the distance of the speaker from the rear and side walls. As with all loudspeakers, this will depend on the size of room, flooring and furnishings therefore some simple experiments trying different distances will help optimise the performance to your surroundings.

As I have sold my amp, you'd probably have to bring yours. Cheers! -Andrew
  24. Item: OL Alliance- awesome tonearm and works nicely as an upgrade to many mid level TTs that suffer from cheap budget arms Location: Sydney Price: $250 firm plus postage, rrp is approx $500. Item Condition: very good, comes with all packaging and box for travel, the manual and mounting kit. (No cart and no turntable as in picture.) Reason for selling: i switched out to an arm that is made by my tt manufacturer to get the right geometry, as TT arm board is non Rega and should be 5mm shorter. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, eft Extra Info: I can only concur with the reviews, it’s an upgrade arm for many decks with Rega geometry, that punches well above its weight. I have been v happy with it on a $4k Wilson Benesch turntable but I am unsure how the lessor 5mm sounds, which is the difference of Rega and WB specs. Google the OL arm , but I can’t find any negative reports and it bests the equivalent Rega arms. Here is some review info https://www.originlive.com/hi-fi/tonearm/budget-tonearm-alliance/ Pictures:
  25. Hi All, Wanted to share an experience I recently went through with my Rega Elicit-R integrated amp. Official site: http://www.rega.co.uk/elicit-r.html I've had my Elict-R for a couple of years, purchased brand new locally, and always really really enjoy the amp. Sounds fantastic, and great synergy with my other Rega gear. I previously had the Elex-R, and the Brio-R. I find that the Elicit was a satisfying upgrade, well worth moving up from the other models. My listening habits are usually having a good sit down listen for an hour or two on a Friday night or weekend (with a drink or two), usually spinning my favourite records (using an external MC phono). Will also sometimes come home of a weeknight and power-up and have a listen to digital sources at low/moderate volumes while I cook and do the daily evening routine. Anyways, I recently splurged and purchased a new/different integrated amp. After enjoying the new purchase for a little while, decided I no longer needed the ol' Elicit-R So I put the Elicit-R up for sale here on Stereonet classifieds. It was soon sold here on Stereonet to a fellow locally in Brisbane QLD. Very soon after sale, the buyer complained to me that the amp was apparently switching itself off after a couple hours of listening. I had experienced something like this myself in the past. Sometimes the Elicit would switch itself into 'protection' mode when it would get too hot. Yet this happened only very rarely to me, only on a couple of occasions, on very hot days and extended listening at high volumes. I'm not sure why this issue wasn't more apparent to me? Maybe due to my usual listening habits, of only listening/using in short bursts? The buyer mentioned that he usually runs his hifi for extended periods (5hrs+). He was running some very neat floorstanding KEFs (possibly 4ohms). I did some searching online, and found some similar reports/issues (only with the Elicit-R, not Elex-R, or Brio), all the reported issues of overheating/switching into protection mode were fixed by simply returning the Elicit-R to Rega for warranty repair. Anyways, so I quickly refunded the buyer and collected the amp and sent it off for warranty repair (Rega has 3yr warranty in Australia). A couple of weeks later I have it back, and have run it for some long extended listening over the weekend just gone (was over 30' all weekend here in QLD too) and is now running without interruption. Although the top left of the case still does get very warm, it doesn't get hot enough to switch into protection mode. The warranty repair report notes: " Dismantled & adjusted bias both channels. Reassembled & tested. " I don't have much understanding of amp Bias adjustment, yet assume it was up too high/hot from initial build? Thankfully the protection circuit is there and no damage done. FYI: The Elex and Brio have no protection circuit/mode. I know the Rega Elicit-Rs aren't very common here in Australia, yet wanted share, and hear if anyone else has had the same or similar issues with their Elicit-R Also, my Elicit-R will likely be available for sale again soon
