Stepping into streaming, finally
The price I paid was $249 from EarMen web site. There is no WiFi connectivity with Stacatto.  
Best investment; cartridge or line stage?
@milo0812 What cartridge do you have? There is no Rega Aria cartridge.

@vthokie83 Thanks for really outstanding review. Now, I am even more anxious for mine to arrive, hopefully any day now.

Rega Planar 3 50th anniversary
"I would guess that over 50% of "audiophiles" have not personally swapped out a cartridge."  I would say that this is way off the reality. "The PSU is the motor that drives the platter to go round. It can be inside the plinth or a separate gizmo ...
