THE ONLY TURNTABLES ABSOLUTE SOUND CALLS ONE of the GREATEST BARGAINS of HIGH END AUDIO are the REGA RP1 & RP6.
RP1, List $445, now $395 STEREOPHILE's most affordable recommended turntable; includes installed diamond needle cartridge.
EXCEPTIONAL VALUE "Compared to the P1, the RP1 has more drive, better focus & was more confident, purposeful & authoritative. The RP1 looks good, is easy to set up & plays records like it means it. It's not just that I can't imagine $445 buying more happiness; I can't imagine so modest an investment in money & effort buying more music. The RP1 Performance Pack Upgrade was easy to install & resulted in a bigger soundstage, deeper silences & greater resolution of low-level detail. A no-brainer." STEREOPHILE, 4/16
WHAT HI-FI, 5 stars, "Excellent budget product; terrific performer for the money; easy to use & set-up; fine build" includes cartridge, improved tonearm & phenolic platter, l7.4xl4x4.5"
