Turntables - budget 500/600€ - Rega vs Pro-ject vs Denon

Hi friends,

Hope everyone is healthy and safe!

I'm planning to buy a turntable with a budget around 600€! I know aproximately zero about turntables but i have a lot of vinyls i'd like to listen!

I did some research about Pro-ject Carbon Evo and read good reviews? Also, the shop where i used to buy my hi-fi told me that rega used to be better built. Also I saw that denon has DP-450, a new model with good reviews!

As said before, my knowledge about that topic is almost zero, so I count on your opinions.

Kind regards

What amp are you using it with and do you need a separate or built in phono preamp ?

Thanks, interesting amp, it has a phono input for MM cartridges and reports suggest it is fairly decent so no need to restrict yourself to turntables with built in preamps or the need for a separate phono stage.

Are you open to second hand, in the UK that budget would probably get you a Rega P6 or a Linn Axis plus a VM95ML or SH cartridge in good condition.

For new it's hard to beat the Rega Planar 3 st that price point.
