Hi Puma Cat,

I would not consider a Rega rp8 a performance upgrade versus a classic 2. The rp10 would be an improvement I'm sure but not a particular fan of the Rega sound. The clearaudio innovation is in a different ball park to Rega rp8 IMHO. Looking for real increase in performance.

While I covet the Innovation, must say I've been very happy with the Clearaudio Ovation which gives you most of the innovation's advantages. Although not sure its is a upgrade to your present system

Going back on an old thread here...

Why would you sell an innovation TT and get a master? the innovation is upgradable to the master...

maybe it wasn't a few years ago?

Love my innovation, which I got this year - upgradeable to the master if I lose my last shred of sanity.
