elizabeth Thanks so much and yes I started out with the RP8 and came very close to getting one. They are offering great deals as you noticed.I was thinking Rega all along because I wanted as simple as I could get setup wise but still wanted it ... 
Nottingham Spacedeck vs Rega Planar 8 vs Technics SL1200G
I just bought the Rega P8 / Apheta 2 myself and am unpacking it tonight. I voted with my wallet so you know what one I think you should choose :)

Thanks - yes I checked out that Gold Note ph10 and it look great. I never looked into them before. Very nice stuff. I went with a Sutherland Duo because I found such a great deal right in my price range.Thanks  So you own and like the Decca London... 
What is the latest greatest USB add on device?
If you don't mind spending the money there is NOTHING that can touch the equipment below. There is nothing actually even close but like everything that is outstanding it is expensive but IMO worth it. If you want best bang for buck get the Uptone ...

Homer_skinsdefinitly try plugging into the wall. My Amp, Dac and Preamp all sound 1,000 times better just plugged into the Wall. I do not mean a little better either. Ask Pass Labs, Vitus, Simaudio or Krell? They will all tell you to plug into the...

tablejockeyThanks - no one has ever mentioned this Cary phono to me? Is it in the same league as the Allnic 1201, Sutherland Duo or the venerable and universally loved  Herron VTPH-2A? Thanks

Oh yes I agree. It was an $8,000ish table / arm and a $11,500 pre/phono set up and it sounded like a alarm clock radio of sorts.Not that bad I'm kidding but nothing even close to my digital. The analogue guru was amazed when he heard my digital. S...

fossdaThanks so much for the kind comments. My table is a little different as it is the P8. I am not sure if it sounds any better than the RP8 but I like the cool to me looks of the new model :)Actually, my goal of buying was to choose a good qu...

liamowenThanks for the info. It's funny as one Pass Labs XP-15 showed up for sale on Audiogon last night. I was thinking long and hard about this one! Love the build quality and simple and clean industrial design. It works for me that is for sur... 
Herron VTPH-2A Phono Preamp....anyone familiar?
This talk makes me worry about buying this phono? I have read so many good things, too many good things honestly but nothing is perfect. One person didn't like it that much for his taste and now it must be or could be something else in his system ... 
OPINIONS PLEASE - Phonostage for new Rega P8/Apheta 2 - Sutherland 20/20 or Allnic 1201
edwyunThanks - yes it has a couple op amps but I am more worried about the best sound per buck. I would prefer discrete but fear this level of performance with all discrete will cost much more. It is my first "Real Concerted" foray into vinyl so...

Thanks guys - I reached out the Keith the proprietor of Herron. Very nice person.  He doesn't even have any in stock. He sells them as quick as he makes them. He told me he is getting in a used VTPH-1MC he could work something out with me in the n... 
Audioquest Fire or Synergistic Research Atmosphere Level 4
I am considering trying a Fire IC RCA. I have a full loom Kubala-Sosna Emotion SC, IC and AC's but just added a Rega P8 Turntable/Apheta 2 cart and a Sutherland Duo phonostage and I need an IC to go from my new phono to preamp. Would you recommend...
