    I've always been interested in the Ania Pro. I never fancied the Ania much but the Pro is supposed to be meatier.

    well, in my very limited experience, it takes everything i like about the Exact and takes it up a significant level.
    i guess this is to be expected considering the fact its more than twice the price. i believe they have the same cut of stylus, unlike the plain Ania.
    my humble little Dynaudio M10's have never sounded this good with my digital setup, quite shocked tbh.

    I experienced something similar moving from an Exact to an Apheta back in the day (December '06). Still with the Apheta (now in rebuild mode).

    Does it have the weight and body of the Exact?

    absolutely, and then some.
    i got lucky with my purchase , being ex-demo i got a good discount. had it not been for this i probably would not of stretched to an Ania-Pro.
    now that i have it, at least i know a refurb at Rega is very reasonable. (currently £345, compared to Exact refurb of £225).

    on the downside, my new purchase has created 2 more itches for me to scratch.
    1 being an upgrade on my Mofi Studiophono stage and 2 being an upgrade of my Pro-ject DS2 dac.

    i doubt a Fono MC will be an improvement on my Mofi, so looking at Ania level (used).
    as far as a dac goes , something like Chord Qutest or RME ADI-2.
    none of this is urgent though, thankfully, as my digital setup does not get a look in at the moment due to the arrival of the P8.
    and the P8/AP sounds fantastic even with the Mofi stage.
