It has been nearly 15 years, since I first purchased my Rega P3 (2000). It has proven to be a very reliable turntable. With the help of Groovetracer upgrades, this turntable tracks almost flawlessly and there are no speed issues. However, since that time, I've upgraded my speakers, amps, power cords, interconnects and everything else. I am now looking at getting a better sounding turntable. What I am looking for is a vinyl rig with greater clarity and detail, that is easy to set up and does not have any speed control, tracking, humming or RFI issues. Some of the models I am considering are the Rega Planar 6/Exact 2 combo, the Music Hall MMF 7.3/Ortofon Bronze combo, the Technics SL 1200GR and the VPI Prime Scout. The Rega Planar 6/Exact combo is probably the best value for the money. In Canada the retail price is $2499(Canadian). It often comes up on sale for $1999, which is the retail price for the turntable by itself. I almost got the Rega/Ania combo last year for $200 more. However, I read so many negative comments from members of this forum that I figured I was safer getting the Exact 2. Everybody seems to like that one. From what I've read, the turntable itself is lightyears ahead of the P3 (2000). The Music Hall MMF 7.3/ Bronze combo retails for $2199 Canadian. I know that the Bronze is a great cartridge. Some like it better than the more expensive Black. However, I'm not sure how the turntable would compare with the Planar 6. It has gotten some great reviews. The Technics 1200GR is a great turntable but is overpriced in Canada, where it sells for $2499 (Canadian), which is what the VPI Prime Scout sells for. Unless, it is clearly superior to both the Planar 6 and the MMF 7.3, I would probably be better off with one of them. The VPI is perhaps the best of the lot but I understand it is tricky to set up properly. This would be a very strong contender if I had a high end dealer nearby, who could set it up for me. Unfortunately, none of the dealers in my area sell VPI turntables. Right now, I am leaning towards the Planar 6 or MMF 7.3. However, I would be open to getting the Technics if it were clearly superior. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
