    In my experience, Regas of any "class": Planar 3, Planar 6, Planar 8, Planar (or the earlier "RP" or "P" generations), punch WAY above their respective price points. Ya just can't go wrong.

    Adjusting VTA requires Rega-manufactured shims. But I'm not going to worry about it because the Apheta 3 sounds fabulous. It has outstanding detail, its musical as all get-out, and its incredibly neutral. It reminds me of a Dynavector XV-1. I...
