No not given up, but I think I am going throw a bit more cash at it for the next one, which will take time. I think I just got a duff one. It happens......

Hi The Limey,

Good result on the refund and fair play to Audio T.

Just as an aside have you considered a second hand turntable.....I can highly recommend the Planar 3. Lots of them around. I bought mine second hand and its seriously in MINT condition. Lots of upgrade options available as well if that sort of thing interests you.

It could be the belt rubbing up and down on the inner platter, or motor bearing noises - sometimes they sound like a ticking clock - either way Rega would replace it no problem through your dealer. Also check the distance between the cartridge underside and the record surface, it might be 'bottoming out' due to too much tracking force.

I don't suppose you have read the rest of this thread but he took it back and got a refund - in May!
