Haven't had a working turntable in over 20 years.  I need the gear if only for the vinyl releases from Third Man Records.

guitarist9273's picture

I've never had any turntables or analog equipment. Poor student thing. But, I'd love to!!! :)

I wonder how these new Regas stack up against my Technics!

I got to demo one of these not long ago and was very impressed. Did not have the money to buy it but it would be amazing to win one!

saintdon's picture

mbhangui's picture

This will be a wonderful addition to my AKAI AP002 (1976) turntable which I acquired just 4 months back.

Analog rocks!!

I'm very excited that your new site is up. I was always a reader of all your other work (and a viewer of interviews as well) and appreciate the passion you put into good audio quality--even in this digital age. I'm looking forward to all the new things that will be on the website and hope to refer friends here often. Thanks! 

TerryWI's picture

My teen son has set up a 2 channel system from my "spare parts" this past year, but needs a turntable to dive in to my album collection.  This would work fine...

bprochford's picture

This one's been on my list anyway, so a win would be nice.

popluhv's picture

I'm excited about the new website.  And, of course, a chance to win a Rega turntable.

mpbrog61's picture

A worthwhile addition to audio websites. I have already bookmarked this site.

rbasich's picture

This makes a nice quality combination to transfer music from analog records to portable digital formats.  Rega equipment is well-designed and known for producing terrific sound at a fair price. 

It would be wonderful to win this!

Good luck to all that enter the contest.

Ddncons's picture

This would be an excellent introduction to vinyl for my daughter!

BigE's picture

Count me in on the drawing.  It will be interesting watching this site develop.  Thanks!

alan james's picture

Glad to see that MF will have his own presence here.  He has done everything possible to keep vinyl alive and kicking.  It has truly worked. The dream of making top notch vinyl in, of all places, Kansas, is alive.

tparker14's picture

Great way for my kids to get into vinyl without screwing with MY turntable! ;)

fdroadrunner's picture

The site is great.  I enjoyed MusicAngle a lot, but the layout here is better.  I look forward to checking this site out often.

This turntable would be a great update from the one I'm now using and would love to add it to my system.  And if you're ever in Nebraska, I'll even let you stop by for a listen.

napunch's picture

And a very nice present for my girlfriend that would be!

Sweet lil second system

GFaulk's picture

The Rega will make an excellent first prize. However, Michael should offer his Continuum Audio Labs Caliburn with Cobra arm as a second prize.

Travis's picture

This would be a nice upgrade from my meh table :)

Lutta_Matt's picture

This is a great way to start a new site.

alan james's picture

At the end of my school year (Math) I teach a digital audio class and in it we compare the "sound" of various bit rates and we also compare all of those up to 24/96 to that of vinyl using records from the 60's to current ones of 180 gram virgin vinyl to let them hear what the possibilities can be. The RP-1 would be a nice addition and allow clean needle-drops in class.

Ohjoy50's picture

Rega is the best little turntable, honestly would love to give this as a gift to my son for his first turntable.  Good luck to everyone.  But its Mine !! lol

Eyeing the RP1 for a while....but can't quite justify with the misses. Free would work, though. Good site. by the way.

GreekSheik's picture

Great contest and a great website

It'd be great to replace the old BSR TT I bought on craigslist last year.

Love the new website!

Doctor A's picture

I'd love to give this to my daughter to introduce her to listening to vinyl rather than low-quality mp3's and aac's.

It would be cool to have another turntable to go along with my vintage Dual DD. 

tcreery's picture

This page is now one of my favorites, long live vinyl.

alxjalmeida's picture

Fantastic site! Thanks for keeping accurate and artistic music reproduction in people's minds in the midst of all this "noise" we hear on the pop scene these days!

mikeydevod's picture

Iv'e been away from vinyl for awhile but this sure would help me jump back in!

Layums's picture

This will be ideal, I can have one table to listen. And the other for the dog, his taste is a bit different to mine. Also those paws tend to scratch the vinyl so getting them to digital will be perfect. Save a few who done it arguments. 

soundcents's picture

Over the last 2 years I have built a system that I am very happy with. The only thing I am mising is a good turntable and phono preamp.... how perfect!

shaksfan's picture

Thanks. Great new site!!

cat fur bounces right off of that turntable.

Tlaloc's picture

This would bring great joy to my little brother and my parents.  My father has been aching for vinyl gear but just can't put up the money right now.  Rega is a great company and I'd be thrilled to give him such a quality setup!
