Rega 24V Motor Upgrade Kit
Hot-Rod Your Rega Table
When Rega introduced their 24V motor with the P324 and the P5, the world was stunned. Rock-solid performance and outstanding speed stability from such an inexpensive design rocked the audiophile market to its core. Now, the same potent rigid-mount motor from the P324 is available as an upgrade kit. This is a huge upgrade, virtually eliminating vibration, wobble and speed instabilities and delivering enormous improvements in focus, dynamics, extension and tone.
- Hand-tuned circuit board minimizes vibration
- Rega designed 24VAC synchronous motor assembly
- Rigid-mount design improves start-up speed
- Improves drive, speed stability and sonic performance
The 24V Motor Upgrade Kit is also compatible with Rega's outboard TT-PSU external power supply, which is standard equipment on the P5 and offered as an upgrade for the P324. The TT-PSU is a plug and play upgrade which makes a huge improvement, improving pitch definition and stability, lowering the noise floor and creating another big jump in speed stability. The TT-PSU incorporates an advanced anti-vibration circuit which further eliminates motor noise and as an added bonus, the TT-PSU also adds the ability to switch between 33RPM and 45RPM with the flick of a switch.
What's in the box:
- 24VAC motor assembly & PCB

- Planar motor mount hole cover stickers
Installation of the 24V Motor Upgrade Kit is fairly straight-forward. Simple soldering is required for the installation; the old motor and switch need to be de-soldered and the power switch needs to be re-soldered onto the new board. Other than that, simple tools, patience and a slow and steady hand are all that are needed to install this kit. We highly recommend reading the instructions several times thoroughly; although this is not a complicated procedure, as always, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
The 24V Motor upgrade kit works with the following turntables:
Planet, Planar 2, Planar 3, P3 2000, P25
P324 and P5 owners take note, your turntables already come standard with this 24V motor.
