The new Rega Planar 3. Replacing the multi award winning Rega RP3 and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took the team of designers headed up by Rega's Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new Rega Planar 3 tunrtable following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen.
The team have worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.The new Rega Planar 3 turntable is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model.
RB330 tonearm - Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand new bearing housing, and our latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before.
Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers. Rega made, new low capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs,
Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundations of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic original Planar range.
The new 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.
Great product, along with a very helpful and professional service offered by the guys at analouge seduction. Extremely swift delivery on the item along with regular updates of the delivery date and time, which was extremely refreshing and helpful.

Got this up and running today with a rega Mk3 Phono stage. Real step up from my old deck. Very easy set up out of the box. Spent all afternoon working through album after album. Sublime. Clarity, warmth and space for each instrument. Love it and looks that bit special.
I was using an entry level turntable previously. With Rega Planar 3, I am able to hear the detail wasn't able to reproduce on my previous one. The tonearm single cables are perfect (though they are a bit short). Easy to set up, excellent quality (both build and sound), worth every penny!
