Rage Against the mp3 Vol. 3

The more serious of starter packs just got EVEN BETTER - 2018 BETTER

What do you do when you’ve already put together the ultimate starter pack for serious vinyl enthusiasts?  Well, you make it better, that’s what you do. And so that’s what we did! Further refinement is what Hifi’s all about, and when new products come our way we test, we assess, and we adjust what we offer to you accordingly. So when the Debut Elac B5.2’s showed up we listened, both to the speaker and the customer’s requesting them. It was pretty clear from the outset that the new Elac B5.2's offered superior performance over their price bracket competitors, making them one of our most popular entry-level bookshelf speakers to date. So it was only a matter of time before we incorporated them into one of our more popular entry-level packages.

Introducing to you the new and improved Rage Against the MP3 – Vol. 3. It’s one of our best budget package deals by a country mile, and it just got better. Each of these components – speakers, amplifier and turntable – are modestly priced audio building blocks. Not only does this pack offer gorgeous sound from the first play, it can all be significantly tweaked to get some seriously bangin’ analogue tunage. Think of it as ana-Lego. You can add bits and tweak components as your wallet expands and your ears develop. This is the pack people go, shit, music actually sounds like this? It’s the baited hook, and once you’re hooked you’ll start nipping here and tucking there, fine-tuning your system and tailoring it to your burgeoning musical tastes. 

So, what’s in the Third edition of this killer pack?

The Turntable:

Pro-ject’s DC Debut Carbon, one of the highest selling turntables in the world. And it’s with good reason. Carbon fibre tonearm, increased platter size and weight for improved rotation, isolated motor housing and – just cause we want you to experience the magic of upgrades right now –  an Ortofon 2M Red stylus. It’s a great table with a sweet cartridge upgrade. But you don’t have to stop there. It’s also the kind of table you can tweak right up. Ortofon Blues, Bronzes and even a cheeky moving coil MC3 Turbo are exceptional stylus upgrades for the future. Plus, throw in an acrylic platter to reduce inherent styli distortion and you’ve got one tricked up table that’s probably trebled in sound quality.

The Amplifier:

Rotel’s A10 all-analogue 35Watt per channel amplifier. You heard it right, folks. This baby is all analogue all day. No onboard DAC, no inbuilt bluetooth. This guy was designed with your records in mind and it’s super super beautiful to listen to. But it too has one very commendable future upgrade option: Pre Out. One day, in the bright and glistening future, you may decide you want some badass floor standing speakers or some super juicy bookshelf speakers, and you’re going to need more grunt to do them justice. Well, rather than replacing your existing amplifier, which sounds lush AF, you use it as a preamplifier and get yourself a power amp. Now you’ve got a tonne of extra grunt and you haven’t had to drop a piece of your audio gear. As is, the Rotel A10 is a stunning integrated analogue amplifier. It offers a great deal of warmth and detail straight out of the blocks. But its potential to be part of your future, developing stereo setup is a nice added touch. 

The Speakers:

So what STILL makes the New ELAC B5.2’s bookshelf speakers so good and WHY have we selected for a second time to incorporate them within this pack? Speaker trailblazer Andrew Jones has once again out-done himself and produced an amazing design and more importantly an excellent sounding affordable speaker range for ELAC. A major new feature of the new Debut B5.2 range is the design change to a front ported speaker. This will help the sonic cause of a lot of the folk that don’t have a lot of room and need to have their speakers up against the wall or other space restricted scenarios. The new range has also produced a sleeker looking box design but has successfully improved the previous sound qualities to a wider Frequency response 46 - 35000z , sensitivity to 86db and a Larger 5 1/4” woofer. Overall a great match for this package and great match for all your listening space.

The Speaker Upgrade:

Looking for a bigger, richer and more detailed sound quality from the Rage? Well, upgrade to the Elac B6.2 Bookshelf Speakers and enjoy the bigger 6.5inch aramid-fibre woofer. A small point of difference on price, a large difference in quality. 

Analogue audio is a game of Whispers. One component talks to another that talks to another and so on until you’re having the message played back to you through the speaker cones. The beauty of a system like that is each of the components responsible for relaying the message can be tweaked and upgraded over time. Each time you do you reach further and further into the record to draw more detail from its message. It’s a fun game, an addictive game, and one we try to share with our customers every day. So if this is something you feel you might get into, the new and improved Rage Against the MP3 – Vol. 3 is without question one of the best ways to start playing.
