The RP1 is an extremely enjoyable table. There's nothing about it that calls/demands for upgrades - it's good enough as is.

Well, you'd have to swap out the tonearm, platter, plinth ....

To add a point; the P1 is a very elemental low-end turntable. Few purchasers of a P1 stay with it for the long term. It works well for what it is. But it has a limited upgrade path. For the price of a new P1 you could buy a used P3 and have a deck that will satisfy you for years to come; as well the P3 has an almost limitless upgrade path; there is literally an aftermarket upgrade component for everything on that turntable... P1? meh. You will be looking for a new deck in a year or two. .

There is literally nothing that is shared between the P1 and P3. Nothing. So upgrade a P1? Why bother. Start with a P3 and you have a good, solid platform with a much better motor and a great OEM tonearm. P1 is a great $200 turntable. Period.

I'd check out the Sansui SR-525. Nice tonearm on those. Fullly manual. Literally solid construction.

I didn't say wether it was worth it or not, the comment was made that the P1 upgrade path was limited.

And a P1 is worth more than $200
