Rega Planar 3


Available in store only

Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of a lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundation of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic original Planar range.

The Rega Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a new improved double brace system mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) which forms a structurally sound “stressed beam” assembly. This rigid plinth design prevents energy absorption and unwanted resonance, which will add unnatural distortions to the music. Equally, heavier mass can transfer more unwanted energy, such as motor or bearing noise directly into the rotating record. The use of braces instead of the complete skin allows double-thickness phenolic resin in these key areas while providing further weight reduction to the plinth which directly addresses the issue of mass absorption and unwanted energy transmission.

Prices for the turntable start without a cartridge should you wish to fit your own but package prices are available should you want a factory-fitted Rega cartridge. Please enquire for more information.
