TT Recommendation

My current system consist of a Pro-Ject 2Xperience TT with Ortofon 2M Silver cart,  Mcintosh MA5300 being used as a preamp, Mcintosh MC462 power amp and B&W 802D3 speakers.  I'm looking to upgrade the TT and looking for recommendations. I thought that I had narrowed my search down to the Rega P8 or VPI Prime 21 but yesterday someone told me that I should include the Feickert Volare as well.

What are your thoughts of the three I've listed here.  Are there others that I should be looking at?  My budget including cart is around $5,500 - $6,000.

Great question- I need to re look that bit of info up and will let you know.

I have a modded Rega p6 and a Feickert Volare with a Kuzma arm, I’ve had a Sumiko Blackbird and Soundsmith Othello on both, the Rega is less expensive the Volare sounds better. Both were played using a Herron VTPH2.

Hope this helps.
