The Concept is a strong contender. I've done demos with the Clearaudio alongside Michell, Project, and Rega at that price point, and the Clearaudio stood out to me to sound more like a high end turntable - to me, the MM cart that comes packaged with it, and the overall sound, seemed more like what you'd expect from a deck using a moving coil cartridge. The Project was the closest in tonal balance and overall sound, but just didn't quite have the delicacy and finesse the Concept had, which really stood out fro the bunch. I haven't heard a Rega with a different cart, which would be interesting.plastic penguin said:Not really but had to start somewhere. *scratch_one-s_head**mosking*
Pro-ject Classic, Rega RP6 and Xperience SB. Like to hear the ClearAudio Concept MM TT but there's no dealers who stock this item without covering a lot of tarmac.
Where would be your nearest dealer? I don't want you to reveal your whereabouts.
