1. Rega RP6
The bigger brother of RP3, the RP6 may look similar on the surface, yet underneath the colourful counter are many tweaks that make it worth the jump in price. A 16mm glass flywheel, manufactured using a UV curing bond technique, helps improve speed, stability, consistency along with accuracy of sound. Another interesting addition is the 24v low noise motor, which features an anti-vibration circuit hand and is controlled by Rega’s TTPSU power supply. Plus, if you want to get all patriotic, there’s a Union Jack emblazoned version available too.
Price: £1,000 | Rega
