Which turntable Rega, Pro-ject or Clearaudio


I am getting back into vinyl and was wondering which of the three turntables would be the better choice, the new Rega P3-24 or the Project RM5 or the Clearaudio Performance.Not sure of cartridge yet, looking at sumkio, grado & clearaudio. I have a Plinius 9200. I have had a long layoff from vinyl so i am not sure what would be a good choice.Your opinions are appreciated. Thanks

Technics SL1200 or SL1210. Do a search here and on Vinyl Asylum for opinions and visit the KAB USA website for nice upgrades.
+1 on the Technics. Here are some links that Viridian alluded to:

Johnny rocks!
taste in sound? warm/rich or fast/tight?
Same as taste in mates, I suppose. When I was younger, the former. Now that much time has passed, the latter.
I have recently owned several tables; Rega P1, P3, P5 VPI Scout, Technodec, Clearaudio Emotion and currently own the Clearaudio Performance. I can say without hesitation that the best deck for my ears is the Clearausio Performance with a Clearaudio Maestro. They all sound different so it is important for you to decide what YOU like in sound and find something that matches that.
Mji123,

perhaps you could share a blow by blow.
Hey, Mj, what is the list price of the Performance?
Thanks,
Marty
