Pt2 with Apheta

Post by puddlesplasher » 27 Jun 2016 14:21

Just wondering if anyone is using or has used a Rega Apheta with a Pinktriangle turntable.

Not seen or heard an Apheta, but the PT works well with decent tonearms and moving coil cartridges, so I think it would be a worthy platform.

Not sure if this helps; but the unit I currently have was purchased from a dealer.
It is a PT1 that was originally fitted with an RB 300 tonearm and Exact2 cartridge.
I traded my AR ES-1 RB 300 for this; but kept my Ortofon 2M Black.
Sound from this setup was truly fantastic-no other words would suffice.
In fact, now that I have it for about a year, I can say that the Exact2 shows the 2M black to be overrated and overpriced. It deserves more respect than it gets!
Simply more detail, extension, dimensionality and a lot less surface noise.
The presentation was almost digital, in a good way. Neutrality ruled the day.
No Grado or Koetsu warmth though, if that's your thing.
Also, mediocre recordings had diminished dynamics.

I would expect the multiple times more expensive Apheta to be pure ecstacy!
