But as the Planar has a fixed RCA cable attached, I somehow need to find a solution to connect it to my Yamaha RX-A880 receiver (which drives my Bowers & Wilkins 683 s2's).

    Rega v Pro-Ject TT & Elys v Ortofon Cartridge

    I am looking to upgrade my Project 2 with Ortofon 2M Blue. It has been a terrific servant for two decades but it has developed a couple of issues and I'm thinking it might be better to invest in a new turntable than buy parts/pay for repairs. I have been doing some research but wondered if...
