I genuinely don't mean to keep labouring the point, but 'vinyl reproduction' tends to soften high frequency dynamics, bloat up the bass and so many so-called 'Top End' stereo's tend to over-egg the high frequencies (in the speakers most often) to seemingly sound more 'detailed' to try to make up for this. Cheaper speakers can sound 'rough as a badger's backside' due to cheap tweeters and basic crossovers, so a cartridge with real high frequency life and sparkle (as there in the original recording) can sound ott and edgy, just as so many of us loathed 'digital' when it came along because at the time it challenged poor speaker design and some distortions in amplifiers (yes 80's and 90's Naim, I'm glaring at you!!).
I think Rega have cottoned on in recent years to how good and basically 'truthful' 'digital' can be to the recorded source (it is in my personal experience) and their MC range reflects the dynamics of the master recording very well I feel and their MC's do their best to minimise the losses vinyl introduces. Rega's current speakers have toned down their spitty-tweeter act really well and in fact it's their old fashioned squidgy-soft MM models now letting the side down in my book. the Ania is an all-round delight and although the Apheta 2 will be more of a challenge, I feel it'll be worth it. make sure the deck itself is properly sited (if a suitable wall is available away from a corner, their wall bracket is superb and you'll hear it in better bass quality/tunefulness - I accept modern Rega decks are better in the bass and 'free-er' all round in sonics than earlier RB-arm equipped models anyway).
Good luck whatever you do. Apologies folks, I don't like creamy 'chocolate' bass tones with refined sweet highs from vinyl as you don't hear it this way live and I assure you that most master recordings don't sound like that either
