    Default advice about analogue source

    I need advice to substitue my analogue source (Rega P3-Rega RB300-Nagaoka MP200) with another that match better with other components of my system: Leben CS600; Harbeth C7ES3. There is also: NVA Phono 2/PSU Head Amplifier; digital source: EAR Acute Gold; cables: NVA SSP interconnect; Acoustic Revive; Audience Conductor E.
    At this moment, I'm thinking of the following options, but I accept kind advice about another source:
    Linn Sondek LP12-Akito-Adikt-Lingo
    Roksan Xerxes 20 Plus-Tabriz ZI-Corus Silver
    Sota Sapphire-Origin Live Encounter MK3c-Clearaudio Aurum Beta S
    Rega P9-Rega RB1000-Rega Exact.

    Many thanks.

    I would also add the Nottingham Analogue turntables and arms to your list.

    Depending on budget, the Ace Space Deck or the Hyperspace. The 9 inch arm is very good indeed but if you can possibly afford a 12 inch Ace Space Arm, the benefits are well worth the outlay.

    Default Brinkmann Bardo

    I heard in the past a superb match between Leben's amplifier and phono stage and Brinkmann's Bardo turntable. You can take a look that way:

    It surely must have been a good match with the cartridge mounted. There is imo no intrinsic better or worse match with certain turntable equipment brands, just a better or worse electrical and/or sonic match between cartridge and phono pre-amp.
