I sold my Rega 3 ten years ago. I kept some records, many still in wrapper or played only a handful of times
The Rega and Thorens I had were decent tables but nothing on the level that would compare to today’s digital .
I started playing digital files through my OPPO , from there I got Bluesound Vault , and then finally an Aurender N200
The OPPO showed that digital can sound pretty good , the Vault proved that it could sound good and have a slick GUI
The Aurender with my current DAC sounds incredible, I was thinking about getting back into vinyl but the cash outlay to even come close would be a lot
