Regarding the turntable, have you considered maxing out the P5 with available upgrades? Might be your best bang for the buck for right now while you save for a big jump in turntable and arm.
You could add the PSU (power supply upgrade) as well as a wire upgrade for the arm such as Incognito. I would also change the felt mat to the mat from Herbie audio that is the same thickness as the felt mat so there would not be a VTA issue for the Rega arm. I would also upgrade the weight in the back of the arm.
Finally, would add some isolation with a Symposium svelte shelf if the budget allows or footers from Herbie's audio if the budget is tight.
Hope this helps.
thank you all for your precious advices! please keep it coming!
@Franks: I have the psu, but I'm thinking to follow your suggestion as far as the TT concern, and adding all the groovetracer mods.
ps. I want to upgrade the cart also but I can't decide between the dynavector 20x2 and the AT33 PTG..also can I trust the seller juki on ebay?
thank you for your help!
Rockness87 - the best upgrades I made to my Rega Planar II are
- audiomods classic arm with wire harness - starts at $700 Approx
- ISOsub GT 2 S UPGRADE SUB PLATTER - $180
- SRM/TECH platter - $150
Other DIY tweaks include
- redesigned/built the plynth - now I have isolation finally
- I epoxied the dl103 onto a brass base - huge improvement - $12 :-)
I did put a new motor on it, but the improvements were far less impressive
