I had a RP8 for 3 years. I sold it, because I also had a restored vintage Thorens in the same cabinet, and I could play them off against each other using the same or other cartridges, and I preferred the much less expensive Thorens. Of course this is very subjective, and many would have different opinions.
I compared my old Rega P3 to the Amadeus MKII at my dealer's and I thought the Amadeus sounded much better (it should considering prices). Same cart, system, etc.
But there was also a Rega RP10 and I listened to that in the same system. Different cart on the RP10 but much more expensive than my cart, and I still thought the Amadeus sounded better.
I'd look at Amadeus and VPI Prime in that price range for sure. The Prime looks like a very nice table, and it's more user friendly than the Amadeus. Costs a little more, though.
