Listen to the VPI Scout and, the Rega 3 and,Rega 25. The Rega 3 for the money was very good. Did not think the 25 was that much better. Just an improvement on the 3. The VPI Scout was much better than the Rega 25. If you get A chance go compare before you buy. Use your own ears, you may like A different sound than I. To my ears they are all better than the Music Hall.
