I have the Rega RP1 also. Lately when I turn it on there's a squealing nose as it starts turning. The noise disappears after a couple of seconds but I hope that doesn't mean the beginning of the end. Suppose, at least, it would be the cheapest part of the setup to replace.This is what I have
A Rega RP1 with upgrades
A Marantz PM5004 amp,
A Marantz CD6004 cd player
2 Q-acoustics 2020i speakers.
The audiophiles wouldn't be impressed but its good entry level gear.
You may just need to get some grease for the belt. Should be googleable for your modelI have the Rega RP1 also. Lately when I turn it on there's a squealing nose as it starts turning.

I have some second hand speakers from a cheapo Sanyo hi-fi from the 80's, they work and sound fine but i'll defo be upgrading at some point,It's got a built in pre-amp, and the seller gave me a simple external pre-amp of I want to use it. How does one gauge the Ohm-age of these things?

It’s funny that Pro-Ject don’t really do amps with built-in preamps given that they are really known for turntables. Does that Stereo Box have much welly to it?I've been using second hand cheap stuff for 20 years now but a few months back I figured it was about time I actually spent some money. Ended up getting a decent (lower-medium end) set up together, stuck with the same makers for all the equipment with the vague (possibly misguided) idea that they'd put a bit of extra effort in ensuring their stuff works well together.

dem cheap speakers up there
I had all sorts of problems with a faulty pre-amp and ended up shipping it back to Germany for a replacement and using a 15 quid yoke for a month or so. Finally got the replacement pre-amp today and I have to say, it makes a huge difference, but be damned if I can say exactly what it is that has improved. Could be all in my mind.

Ah yeah, considering how tiny it is. You wouldn't want to run a nightclub with it but for home use I haven't had to push it past about halfway up.Does that Stereo Box have much welly to it?
Hi Hugh, do you still have these for sale?So I'm going to upgrade my turntable. Anyone want to buy my one? I actually have two.
1.Project debut ll - this is the one that doesn't have a preamp so you need a phono input on your amp or a preamp. One problem - I took off the hinges on the cover so you lift it completely off and on. No big deal. Just slightly annoying. 100 quid.
2. Similar to above but it's the version with the preamp and has got less usage. 150 quid.
Any takers? In Dublin 8.
