      Looks like a bug in the system, it should be 8. Will get it fixed thanks.

      Excellent to see a turntable review thank you Ed.

      After breaking my unbreakable (had for years) Technics 1210 I brought myself a Rega RP1 Pro which I felt was a fine turntable but I soon realised that to get the sound I wanted to hear or had become accustom to was going to cost me a little more, so after a few weekends of demoing including Pro-Ject turntables, I finally settled on the Rega RP6 & I have to say for a man that doesn't like playing with setup to much this seemed to me the perfect choice relativity easy to set up & beautiful to listen to & of course I am once again enjoying that tactile experience that one only gets with vinyl.

      For those interested keep your eyes open for Home - Record Store Day

      I still very much enjoy listening to vinyl, though the convenience of digital is hard to dismiss.

      I am looking forward to the forthcoming turntable reviews.

      Great review, nice to see vinyl replay getting the nod!

      I've been spinning the things now for about 40+ years ... not stopping anytime soon!!

      I'm not going to spoil the surprise of the three remaining decks but the price very roughly doubles each time and are from three different manufacturers. The second deck is in and running as we speak.

      Still prefer my mint condition 1210 mk2 and wouldn't part with it. Awesome sound
