The Rega Advanced EBLT Drive Belt Enables Planar Turntables To Deliver Superior Performance, Making it an Instant Upgrade Over Older Belts
Replacing the belt on your Rega Planar turntable can make a big difference in speed, stability, and overall sonic performance. The Advanced EBLT drive belt is factory-fitted as standard for all Planar 1, Planar 1 Plus, Planar 2, Planar 3, and Planar 6 models. This new drive belt is essentially an instant upgrade over the previous belt.
The Advanced EBLT drive belt and the higher-priced Reference EBLT drive belt (also available from Music Direct) are suitable for all Rega turntables—except the original Rega Planet turntable. (The Reference EBLT drive belt is factory-fitted as standard on all Planar 8 and Planar 10 turntables.)
The Advanced EBLT was originally reserved for high end-models, but Rega has invested heavily in new tooling and R&D to allow it to manufacture higher quantities of these superb belts. Each belt is molded on Rega's highly accurate custom tooling equipment, using a unique secret blend.
Once molded, the belts are cryogenically frozen and barreled to remove any excess flash in order to create perfect cross-sectional roundness, which is critical to accurate speed and stability. Under normal use and conditions, the lifespan of the EBLT drive belt is 50% longer than that of the previous model.
The new EBLT belts allow for a notable reduction in weighted peak “wow and flutter” measurements, thanks to the increased accuracy of the design and the cross-sectional roundness of the EBLT belt: The standard belt measures 0.253%, whereas the Advanced EBLT measures 0.162%. The Reference EBLT measures 0.075%.
