Rega Planar 3
The original RP3 claimed the hearts of both music enthusiasts and product critics alike, winning a vast number of awards including What Hifi? Product of the Year, five times. To upgrade and build upon what was already a superlative, iconic turntable model was always going to be a tricky task, but following two years of vigorous research and development by Rega's team of engineers, the new Planar 3 takes the reputation of its predecessor and excels it to new standards.
The Planar 3's RB330 tonearm was designed using state of the art 3D CAD and CAM technology and incorporates over three decades worth of tonearm design experience to form a truly outstanding product. A new bearing housing and Rega's latest tonearm tube are designed in such a way that the tonearm is able to intelligently redistribute mass and guarantee that the arm exhibits far fewer points of potential parasitic resonance. It's an extremely stable arm design, with practically zero friction free movement from the highly precise bearing assembly. The result is a truly immersive vinyl listening experience, complete with every level of warmth and micro-dynamic detail is hidden deep within the grooves of your favourite vinyl records.
The high-gloss acrylic laminated plinth is stiffer and better than before improved both aesthetically and ergonomically with the new power switch positioning. The plinth comes in three finishes; a gloss black, gloss white or a gloss red. The Planar 3 uses a platter/sub-platter construction with double braces, an improved 3mm phenolic bottom brace and a new metalised skin phenolic top brace. The Platter makes use of a newly developed float glass 'Optiwhite' polished rim 12mm design, which drastically improves the accuracy of the platter.
