RV HIFI Says:
Rega P5 with external power supply has one of the most musical front-end that lets the music shine through, producing a surprisingly engaging and natural sounding result. The Rega P5 is as close to a set it and forget it analog front-end as you’re likely to find, and its absence of groove noise is astonishing. I prefer its overall musicality to just about any digital system we have heard, as well as to several more expensive analog rigs.
The Rega P5 has quieter back ground noise with tighter and deeper bass, a more three dimensional soundstage, and better highs.
