Thanks for the reply. Not looking for comparisons really, unless someone can directly compare the rp6 to an old Dual 1219. I have been told by a few people much more knowledgable about TTs than myself that I will have to spend over $1k to beat the sound from my Dual. Sounds reasonable but I have no idea if this is true until I experiment of course. I have shied away from anything in the $500-ish range like the rp1, Pro-ject Carbon, or Music hall offerings. Not looking for a sideways move. This rp6 might be a good place to start.
Just looking for any comments from rp6 owners or anyone with experience. For instance, good to know your opinion on the Exact cart. Also wondering about possible upgrades - to an acrylic platter perhaps?
I agree the price does seem decent if it is in great shape.
I have a Rega RP6 with Ortofon 2M Black purchased new around 2016. I would consider dumping the cartridge and going with a Ortofon/Hana/AT and adding the Groovetracer https://groovetracer.com/ subplatter. I expect it would sound much more like music than the Dual, and you'll find yourself buying more LPs.
Thank you all for the replies. Unfortunately, I was a day late. The unit sold yesterday. The hunt continues. I have a line on a fairly new Music Hall mmf 5.1 for $600. Anyone care to comment on that TT?
Or maybe I just ante up for a new one. Still considering the lower priced rp1 or pro-ject models. Just to get a taste for something different than my Dual.
Great ..since Music Direct is near you they may have a demo or close out Mobile Fidelity StudioDeck since they are the Mobile Fidelity guys....Please ignore any poster who degrades Regas...They may be an "engineer" (many audiophiles are engineers) who collects Percy Faith downloads and would not be familiar with the sound of real music if it bit them in the slide rule...
