Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.

I've been very busy for quite some time...

And that is the reason I haven't been around here.

To tell the truth I like Rega tonearms but I am not impressed by their tables. For the money you get a quality tonearm but the table is not impressive.

To tell the truth I have not looked into their recent high end models. My Rega impressions have been formed over a lot of years. I have worked on quite a few Rega tables and none of them impressed me.

They look like a slab of MDF with a DC motor stuck underneath. You get a belt on the pulley included on the motor which gives you 33 and 45 RPM ability.

It's not exactly high tech but, like I said above, you get a very good tonearm for your money. The tonearm also requires many upgrades to make it sing but it can be very good.

You get a very good tonearm on a OK table when you buy a Rega. It's not a bad deal but you have to know what you are buying.

The high end Rega's have never been on my radar. When you get in that price range I don't even think about Rega products.

Rega deserves kudos for selling products that get first time vinyl users a turntable that plays very good sounding music for the money.

Well done Rega...
