The motor noise gradually increased over time and got to the point that it was really irritating. I decided to lubricate the motor bearing with a couple of drops of Super Lube and what do you know, it quieted it right up. Now it sounds as it should have when it was first purchased.
In essence, the Rega Queen is a P-1, so I can compare the P-1 and P-2 decks. For about $200 more than the P-1, you get the P-2 with a better tone are that's one piece, a much heavier glass platter, and better platter bearing. These 3 features add up to better audio than our P-1 is capable of. If you're an audiophile, the extra cost of the P-2 is worth it for sure. I did upgrade the supplied cartridge with a Hana Shibata SL MC cartridge, and the better Rega white drive belt. Clearly, this deck responds well to upgrades and now performs beyond my expectations. If you want your LP audio to sound better than "pedestrian" grade, go with the P-2 with a few modest upgrades. Skip the P-1 and get yourself the P-2 or better.
This deck for not have VTA adjustment unless you buy shims ($100). No antiskate adjustment. But if you set it up properly, should be fine. I never used the included cart just put on an Ortofon blue. The fist cover was "cloudy" looked like sand sandwiched between the plastic. Rega customer service through their dealer was exceptional! Received a new dust cover within days. The Plinth had some polishing marks that I had to manually remove, obviously a known issue as the Rega rep suggested a Polish sold here. Now you would expect much more from a TT on this price range but stock it runs fast 33.7 / 33.8. Replaced the subplatter ($300) and Rega white belt ($60). NOW, everything is duckey at 33.3. Amazon was also great about sending it back for a replacement but after setting it up properly, leveling it and installing the upgrades, I wasn't willing to do that but Rega was great about the dust cover!
I guess the point is, you need to do the upgrades mentioned to get the TT to spin properly. It does sound great with the Ortofon blue but the Audio Technica was dead nutz at 33.3 with no mods.
Do I be like the deck? Yes! Does it sound good,? Yes! But diminishing returns and inferior build and Quality Control I'm underwhelmed. But keeping it. You need to decide what your particular path needs to be but without the upgrades not a significant difference from the Audio Technica LP 120. I guess I was expecting too much but now I have a TT that sounds great and functions well. So, do the math it's now well over $1000. Maybe I'll upgrade the tone arm next. Just s thought because once you get the bug, you just have to keep scratching that itch to the path of perfection.
One thing to note, the dustcover will not stay up. Its not that big of a deal once you get the procedure down... but thought I should mention it.
My wife actually teared up when she heard it the first time.

The sound quality is more that excellent and it's large glass table is heavy enough to prevent any jumping of the arm. I should also say that taking away the felt cover from the table makes it look increadible, especially with the clear "1975" record my friend brought round.
A word of warning to anyone who isn't too familiar with higher end players. You MUST have a set of speakers and a pre amp to listen to records. There are no built in speakers and without at least a pre amp you'll hear nothing more than a few whispers from the speakers, even when they are turned up to maximum volume.
Be prepared for manual speed changes as there is no button, switch, or lever to do this. Instead you remover the large piece of glass and move the small rubber band from one circle to a higher or lower circle, depending on the desired speed.
One complaint is that there is no "auto-stop" function when you get to the end of a record. For the price I feel like it should have this simple feature that even £75 Crosley briefcase players have.
I would definitely recommend this turntable as it looks and sounds incredible. Even after 8 moths I have no buyers regret. It's minimal design looks great anywhere and it's glass table looks fantastic.
