    Yes, on dem and in stock. £498 retail.

    They have been very popular because there really is nothing anywhere near it below a grand. That and the Hanas.

    To my ears the Quintet range is bland. Far better off with a Hana or Ania.

    Why a mc cart? On a Rega arm, I'd personally have an Audio Note IQ1 at that price point. Heck of a cartridge, with replacable stylus. If your mate isn't a hifi junkie, that'll do him for evermore. It'd be a revalation after the Exact

    BTW, I recently auditioned the RP6 directly against the Planar 3 (with the extra power supply), and, yes, it is more relaxed in its presentation. I would have the Planar 3 plus optional PSU personally ... much more lively ... the RP6 was actually rather dull and boring (both turntables with the Ania). I wonder if Rega think the same, as I believe they've just discontinued the RP6?

    p.s. why don't you just try your cart on his arm to see if the 'dullness' is due to his current cartridge, or whether it's actually the whole turntable that's the problem?
