There is not much to go wrong in a Rega turntable, but general maintenance
like changing the oil, cartridge and belt will be required over the years.
Motor upgrade kits are available from $299 for all older Rega turntables, offering a better and quieter motor for more stable speed control and therefore better sound. Rega cartridges are available at affordable prices, starting at only $125. One of the simplest upgrades is replacing the belt with the higher spec white drive belt at $55.
I just wanted to formally acknowledge the service I received from you recently. I have owned the CD3 from new and it has always been well looked after. Recently and having not been played for about three weeks I started getting the dreaded Err message on the panel and when these did eventually clear the CD’s played were just horrible, jumping all over the place. Conducting a little research on the web I came across your services. Having had an issue with the NAIM 140 about 10 years ago I had previously used another organisation who I was adamant I wouldn’t be returning to.
I noted the number of testimonials on your website and thought they sound too good to be true. – in your case they are not! I have been extremely impressed that you sourced the spare parts required ( given the age of the machine- no mean feat) and persevered with my inability to get the CD player to you..eventually I had to resort to getting a courier to deliver it to you. Imagine my surprise when it was turned around and returned to me by courier within 36 hours with the laser replaced and playing perfectly.
I will have no hesitation in using your services again ( you can expect the 62/140 to be with you shortly) and recommend you to anyone who wants a reputable, efficient and professional service maintaining their audio equipment.
