Please recommend turntable with ZP3?
10/09/20 at 15:21:31
 
Can you recommend a turntable in the range of $1500  that would pair well with the ZP3?  
I'm looking at the Marantz TT-15S1, but I'm not sure...

Thanks for your help.

Take a look at the Technics 1200GR.  I'm not sure of the price point but I think it's in that range.  Well worth the price.

The Rega TT in the classifieds here looks to be a pretty sweet deal.

The Rega line of Turntables are a solid choice.  The Rega Planar 6 would be a great choice.  I like my P3 and have no complaints.  

Here is a comparison between the P3 and the P6.

I have to agree about Rega tables. I have an RP3 with an Exact2 cartridge and the TTPSU power supply for the motor. I use the white belt, and I have the Groovemaster Reference sub-platter, Delron platter, counterweight and record weight. Very happy with it.

This one is hard to beat at the price I am offering.. The combo was hand picked by me and the synergy is really nice.

I just added a longer comment on this in another thread, https://www.decware.com/cgi-bin/yabb22/YaBB.pl?num=1506861885, but a used Thorens TD125, SOTA Sapphire, or ClearAudio Champion would also be excellent options in that price range.  All are capable of really outstanding performance, with the Thorens the best of the lot if it's set up properly.
