For Sale:
FS: Rega P5 Turntable with Upgrades

Will Ship To: USA, Canada

Selling a turntable on Head-Fi is a bit of a shot in the dark, I suppose, but it's worth a try before I pay those ever-escalating Audiogon sale fees.

 

This is a Rega P5 in cherry -- the famous "picture frame" turntable. Condition is excellent, with just a few swirlies in the lid and a little dent or two in the soft wood surround.

 

Did I mention upgrades? This unit comes with the old-style outboard Rega TTPSU (not the new model with the gloss finish), the aftermarket Groovetracer Reference subplatter and bearing, and the fancy white Rega belt. Each of these add-ons made a subtle difference in the table's performance -- Regas are known for "PRAT," and it's no BS.

 

Here's the deal. If you're in the US and you pay via PayPal gift, I will ship this to you for $1200 total (including shipping, which will probably be in two boxes). Canada will be $25 more, rest of the world please don't ask (it's probably easier for you to find one locally anyway). I plan on selling this for $1300 plus shipping on the 'gon, but if it sells here I'd be more than willing to pass along the savings. At this price, no cartridge is included, but I would ship it with the currently mounted Dynavector DV20-XL (with I'd guess 200-300 hours on it) for an additional $200. I've added the adjustable Rega VTA adapter and use the 4mm spacer for the Dyna for best results.

 

Thanks for looking, and PM me if interested!

No affiliation with the seller, but I've got to say that I did the reference subplatter upgrade on my P3-24, and of all the upgrades I made (including the TTPSU and white belt, both of which helped), the Groovetracer upgrade was by far the most dramatic. It's a HUGE improvement, and if anybody is looking for a badass good turntable, a P5 with these upgrades should fit the bill nicely. If I hadn't already blown vast sums of money on other ridiculous toys, this sucker would be MINE. 

 

Good luck to the seller, and undying jealousy to the luck %^&* buyer tongue.gif
