I couldn't say for sure as I've heard the RP6 not the P6. But keeping it current and your liking for the Planar 3, the 6 seems the logical step up.The thought of getting a better turntable had crossed my mind, but if I went for the RP6 is it a noticeable step up in performance from my current set-up, would the RP8 not be a better long term purchase?
Also, cartridge, MM or MC for the RP6, Rega or 3rd Party?
The RP6 with maybe the cartridge and phono stage suggested by @Al ears earlier in the thread would be very budget friendly but would I hear a noticeable improvement? On the other side the RP6 would or could form a better base for further upgrades at a later date.
Interesting suggestion, thanks.
Can you demo the 6 anywhere?
Phono stage I can heartily recommend is the Leema Elements - it really is a cracker.
I'm with Al ears on the cartridge front. Stick with MM.
