So, after promising myself I won’t be upgrading anything soon, the itch to look at the final bit in my system I think can be improved has started to need some scratching.
As a summary my vinyl setup is: Rega Planar 6 with an Ania Pro MC into a Moon LP110 v2 phono and a Audioquest Sydney cable to my Uniti Star.
From many threads the feeling I get is that the Rega Aria phono could very well give the best results with the Rega entry level MC elements.
But as I am investigating this I may as well ask what you think. Do I:
- Stick to the Moon?
- Get the Rega Aria?
- Get another dedicated MC phono of no more than the cost of the Aria?
If your answer is 2, what can I expect in terms of improvement?
If your answer is 3, which one?
I know that trying it out is the best option but as we are stuck in lockdown this is quite difficult now and I am willing to take an informed risk and do some lockdown-softening retail therapy.
