rega 3-24 verses other similiar priced tables

I have an old planar 2 table and wondering if upgrading to 3-24 is worth the price.Also curious to hear opinions on music hall and vpi in the rega 3-24 price range.
While I cannot exactly address your question, I can kind of come close. I had a very old P2 that I sold and replaced witha Music Hall MMF-5. From the first I was never happy with the Music Hall. I listen mostly to rock 'n' roll, and the Rega just seemed to rock more than did the MMF. Anyway, my old TT came up for sale at the store I'd sold it to -- with upgrades -- and I bought it back. (It had a different weight and had been rewired.) I was happy from the first, but when the motor began to have problems, I bought a new P3 (though not the P3/24.) Even in its stock form, this is a very good turntable. I think you'll be happy moving up from the P2, and I'd recommend against the Music Hall, which wasn't bad, but didn't live up. I'd been thinking about trying the P5, but an unexpected tax setback put those plans on hold for a time. Good luck!
thanks for info-not going for mm turntable-you think new p3 would be a nice upgrade instead of spending more for 3-24?
a new 3-24 gets you a lot of what used to cost much more money in the P5 - namely the power supply unit. It not only allows on-the-fly switching between 33 and 45, but is much more speed stable. I think the 3 - which I've listened to compared to the 5 would be a nice upgrade from the 2, but the 3-24 would be jumping two generations and might very well content you for a longer period. YMMV
I would get the VPI..then you can always add upgrades to it to make it even better if you wish.
