I’m considering the idea to re-start playing records again
Could someone please make some suggestions with regards to the Planar 3 or 6 to pair with the Uniti Nova? Speakers are Dynaudio Special Forty. I could stretch my budget to a Rega Planar 6 with Rega Fono stage and Exact MM element.
By the way, I need to start from scratch but expect to grow and develop a collection the upcoming years.
Therefore, I’d rather aim for the Planar 6 than getting the 3 now and trade for a 6 later
I believe Linn does the same, yes. The Parks Puffin phono pre is does as well, which then allows it a long list of processing options. Still sounds great. Going digital and back isn’t necessarily a bad thing…
I run a Planar 3 and Fono into my Nova and am very happy with it. I used to have a Linn LP12 with Cirkus bearing, Itock arm, Lingo 2 and a rebuilt Troika but I don’t really miss it - my Rega set sounds really nice and no trauma about set up and maintenance.
I’ve long thought about this surely the signal from the TT is in effect neutralised by the quality of the DAC. But then I thought it through and concluded listen to how superior a DG 60s AAD sounds on CD, or the gorgeous colour mix on a Fuji Velvia or Kodachrome looks or the tones from an Ilford FP4 are even when scanned through Fotoshop or what have you?
