Evening Ladies & Gents...
I'll try to make it short,
I'm not a noob to this but have been away from vinyl and a decent turntable setup for some time now.
I had a Thorens TD180 eons ago but unfortunately sold it ( Stupid moi lol )
Still have my SLBD22's, 1210 & 1200's, Love them but they don't have what Im after.
So lets cut the matter at hand...
I found a Rega Planar 3 for £70 and pounced.
Anyway, It is Armless so I need some advice please...
I'll think about my Phono stage options once the Tonearm & Cart setup are decided upon,
So, What Tonearm's will fit/work/sound great without having to modify the deck at all?
Also, Im looking for a warm yet detailed sound stage with crisp highs and tight controlled bass.
( Im also considering having Frank at Toxic Cables make me a Copper Widow cable kit as it produces a nice warm signal. )
My budget will be around £250, £300 tops for the tonearm & possibly the cart, If I can stretch. If not The cart can come later.
Any help would be much appreciated thank you!
p.s. I'll mainly be listening to Jazz, Blue Grass, Classical, Old 80's electronica & Bands like ZZ top.
Many thanks, Paul :)
pp.s Thought I would start my own thread so any info wont get lost in one big thread.
