Review of the Rega RP8 turntable by HFi Plus
R eview of the Rega RP8 - £1,598 and also Rega RP8 package with Apheta moving coil cartridge – £2,198 by hiFi plus. They conclude :-

" Eventually, I used a small add-on power conditioner to the improve the power going to the TTPSU power supply. The words “that’s got it” were down on the pad within a few bars; then, the air drums started flailing and we were, to coin a phrase, cooking with gas. By the time I was half way through ZZ Top’s ‘I’m Bad I’m Nationwide’ the tears were rolling! This was not a particularly expensive conditioner (Martin Bastin’s Wave Mechanic, at £450), but it turned the RP8 into a no-holds barred giant slayer. I guess this is why the new Rega RP10 has a rather more sophisticated power supply.

With the caveat that ultimate performance can only be achieved with decent AC, the Rega RP8 is the best sounding, sensibly priced turntable and arm I’ve ever heard."
