Final verdict: The Carbon is a top-notch audiophile bargain!
Given the price, even if one were to conclude that the Carbon didn’t do anything to improve on the bog standard AT-91, the fact that the Carbon comes substantially better packed and with better mounting hardware would easily sway the potential buyer’s decision in its favour. I’m convinced that whatever I say about the Carbon, Rega is still going to sell tons of ’em. Every home should have one. - AudioFi
