Rega P5 turntable with RB700 tonearm Silver Frame

SKU: REGAP05SILVER

  • $1,345.00

The Rega P5 is a turntable born from the legacy of the P55. The P5 turntable celebrates over 30 years of Rega precision crafting specialist hi-fi in Britain. And subsequently combines everything that Rega stands for, which is simply, giving you the best product in terms of quality and style at the best possible price!

The Rega P5 turntable utilizes ideas and engineering techniques used on their more expensive turntables: the aluminium surround, its complex CNC machined skeletal low mass micro-fibre plinth and the new RB700 tonearm found on the Rega P7 turntable.

The glass platter of the Rega P5 turntable is hand crafted from floated plate glass 15mm in thickness. This makes for a superb platter material which provides stability and assists in the isolation of record information against other sounds (i.e. /knocking or vibrations) and also provides excellent speed stability; thus providing increased sonic enjoyment.

A review by HiFi Choice describes the eloquence of the Rega P5:

"Its ability to define the leading edge of each note is what keeps you listening and appreciating the subtleties of the music."

I am becoming an audiophile snob.

After having purchased a Pickering xsv3000 cartridge from The Auction Site, I finally decided to purchase a stylus for it. My musical listening tastes have changed over the years I have now realized. This stylus and cartridge combo presents more of a house party sound ....loud, deep bass, and extreme highs. I now desire a more mellow non fatiguing sound. I want to hear all the details and space and separation on my records. My ears have matured and I want to hear the performance in the sound not just over emphasized bass and treble. I have removed this combo from my turntable. This is not a knock against the stylus more so just an evolution in my expectations of what I expect out of my music presentation.

My personal take

This stylus is too bright in my opinion. It does not replicate the shure sound. Details are lost with this stylus also. I have aligned this cartridge three times after installing this stylus to no avail. Honestly, I am not a fan. I have reinstalled my Shure stylus. I heard so many good things about the SAS stylus but it does not do it for my ears.

Quite satisfying

I purchased this stylus on sale as a replacement for an MF1 cartridge I previously purchased on an auction site. From the off it played with warmth, detail, clarity, and dynamics that I was not expecting. It is getting even better as it breaks in. I can't imagine how the highly-touted 8MZ must sound.
