Thanks for that. I have a wife like that.😉 Think I need to give the Elys 2 time before deciding finally. It has barely had 7 hours playing time yet.Just read this. AS luck would have it about a week ago I got the Quintet Blue for my Rega RP3 (Due to my wife deciding my turntable needed dusting and bending the stylus on the Elys 2). I decided to go with a MC as I've always wanted to try one. Sounds great, big improvement on the Elys 2. The phono stage is through a Limetree.
