    Default Advice or opinions sought, regarding replacing Rega6 with..... something ?

    HI All

    I've been the proud owner of a Rega RP6 with 2M blue cart for 5 years now, and I would like to change to another TT, so I'll probs be selling the Rega and putting that cash towards purchase.. looking at MM decks and that's what my stage is (no MC for now).

    Any recommendations, ones to look out for, I don't mind the Rega deck at all, but I'm after something slightly upgraded etc... I've only ever owned a modded Techy 1210 then the Rega for 5 years now.

    I like natural warm, full sounding playback.. I'm not fussed if I can hear Justin from Godflesh cry or anything as detailed.

    any suggestions? budget probs £1000 max

    thanks folks.

    Graeme

    no worries buddy,,,I'm not interested in changing the RP6, but will sell to change to another deck.

    Admin: is this post not permitted in this section? If not please let me know, I will delete it and ask in the Analogue section. thanks

    Hmnn,
    strikes me as a bit of a side move Graeme to be honest?

    Given the quality of your phono amp, and your amps in general your systems revealing enough to hear what your RP6 can do.
    With it’s current 2M blue your not hearing it at its best imo.

    The turntables got untapped potential.
    Sell it, you’ll get a lot less than its worth, and given your budget you won’t get much noticeably better.

    If it were me I’d keep the Rega, make sure it’s setup properly and use your budget to get as good a cartridge within your budget.
    Dynavectors work great on Regas.

    The 2M Black would be a worthy step up, and leave change to spare for gigs or more vinyl.

    The RP6 you already own is a fine sounding deck but I wouldn’t describe any of Rega’s decks as having the “warm, full sounding” you say you are after - is this where your wish to change stems from?

    probably, I tend to over analyse at times.

    My advice for what it's worth is keep the deck, it's got untapped potential as already stated, get a new cart and or arm, i'm using an Audio Technica Art 9 on a Audiomods Series 6 arm and it sounds fantastic

    Yes, think for budget you might struggle to improve on the deck by much. Certainly the arm might be bettered, and carts are a personal thing really but modern AT's are quite good value
