Take a look at Acoustic Signature turntables too.
If the superb performance of their MCX1 cartridge is typical of their products they are worth
serious consideration.

£4k gets you a very good turntable and the choice is endless, I have had a lot over the past 32 years including Rega, L*nn, Michell, SRM, Avid, Mofi and Nottingham Analogue. My favourite is Nottingham Analogue, I believe it to be the best bang for buck available today but you must audition when possible. Good luck with the search.

Incidentally the RB1000 arm on the Rega P9 was excellent & the latest RB3000 on the P10
should be even better.
The only thing about these arms is the lack of height adjustment & some carts are very sensitive to VTA.
Whether a Series 6 will be significantly better than a RB3000 is a big question, but the Series 6's adjustability is in its favour.

Strangely, the TT that was playing when I heard a Slee EGV (many moons ago now) was a Nottingham Analogue. Its a beast of a turntable, and agree that you get a lot for your cash

I am ruling out it though only due to the sheer size of it. Great TT though

If I do end up with a P10 then either a Series 6 of an Origin Live Illustrious Arm are on my list to replace the rb3000

Having now used the P10 for a week now with a Reflex C/Enigma with a LOMC Sumiko its sounds very good. I wouldn't say its lean at all just no bloat. It pretty much does everything very well, but have been informed buy another P10 user that adding a Audiomods Series 6 made a massive difference

Im really liking the P10 now, but disregarding the arms, I wonder how a P10 (TT, plater. PSU) stacks up against an Origin Live TT without the arm

The P10 suits me ie size, separate psu/speed change, cover etc. If the foundations of the P10 are that good and it can be improved considerably by a better arm then its the TT for me. But is it that good?

How would it stack to an Aurora or Calypso (however that is more expensive) with their upgraded platter.

More research me thinks lol

The only criticism I ever hear about Rega is that some find their sound a bit lean and lacking in meat but if you're not finding that to be the case then it sounds like you'd be more than happy living with a P10, especially given you have some recommended upgrades to try out.

To be honest (and speaking as an Origin Live owner myself), with Rega's bigger production runs bringing costs down, I wouldn't expect an Origin Live to outdo a Rega at a comparable price point.
