A great entry level turntable for the budding audiophile. Great sound reproduction and well made. However, the manual speed changing from 33rpm to 45rpm will soon get tiring. Rega quote that it is manual to eliminate noise in the audio chain but believe me, it can get extremely frustrating having to remove the platter to change the belt sprocket. I found also that the belt quickly stretched and became loose, resulting in slipping and speed inconsistency. I would recommend the 24V motor upgrade and PSU, that means you don't have to manually change the belt, but at AUD$600, it's about the same price as the turntable was originally.
