Invest in a couple of large maple boards and 4 Machina Dynamica Promethean Springs. Make a sandwich under Rega. Get 4 Herbies isocups to go between the Rega and top board. Get a pillow to catch your jaw

I am excluding the cartridge - I am looking for a TT and arm upgrade only. What should I go looking for if and when I do want to upgrade my existing Rega P3/RB-300 combo..
Using a Moon LP5.3 right now..which is a fabulous phono stage..And I am totally with you on your observation..
Where are the VPI guys ?
Tablaloops what I am trying to say is that you have a good basic front end.Your pre,power and speakers also must enter into any future upgrade.You can spend BIG BUCKS on a TT and arm and not be able to achieve their full potential do to your cartridge or the rest of your systems limitations.
Be certain that a good sounding VPI table and arm will put you well over your budget.No one can say what you should look at when you decide to upgrade.We all have different tastes.
But if your budget is about $1500 try tweeking your system first,you may be surprised
If you like the Rega sound there seem to be quite a few P25's on here lately at great prices. You could pick one up for between $500-1000 and have a great analog system and some money left over for records. Or you could pick up a VPI Scout, new or used it fits your budget. The best thing to really do is to really take some time and think about this so you make one purchase to last a while. And don't forget to have some fun doing it!
