Live with a Legend: Rega Planar 3 50th Anniversary Turntable Features Neo PSU MK2 Power Supply, RB330 Tonearm, Exact 2 Phono Cartridge, Reference Belt, Walnut Effect Plinth

Enhancing the award-winning performance and looks of a component deemed "the best value on the market" by What Hi-Fi? and listed as a perennial entry on the Stereophile Recommended Components list, the Rega Planar 3 50th Anniversary Edition turntable takes the legendary status of the acclaimed Planar 3 to an even higher level. Equipped with a gorgeous walnut effect plinth with aluminum anniversary badging, this special edition model adds a Rega Neo PSU MK2 power supply, CNC-machined Planar 6 drive pulley, Reference EBLT drive belt (pre-fitted), and smoked dustcover to its sibling model's considerable arsenal. Made in Britain in Rega's dedicated factory, and not in some third-party facility contracted for faceless mass production, Planar 3 50th Anniversary Edition is analog as how it should be experienced. 

Offering tremendous value and proven expertise in the fields of ergonomics, usability, and sonics, this 13.2-pound turntable delivers high-end playback marked by stellar control, excellent tonal balance, accurate pacing, big dynamics, you-are-there resolution, and constant fun. One of the primary keys to Planar 3's addictive sound resides with its RB330 tonearm. A bias assembly with a stuffer vertical housing bearing, integrated arm clip, and refined spring housing contribute to its superb stability, near-friction-free movement, and ability to retrieve abundant information from record grooves. RB330 also touts a low-capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs and a 100g mild steel balance weight for optimal precision.

Another important element: Rega's outboard NEO PSU MK2 power supply that works in concert with the Planar 6 drive pulley. Using the same DSP generator found in the Planar 10 power supply, Neo MK2 is built upon a high-stability crystal. The DSP generator divides the accurate signal from the crystal to the exact frequency required to turn the platter at the selected speed, producing a near-perfect sinusoidal waveform to drive the 24v motor. Translation: Better focus, dimensionality, timing, and imaging from your LPs. 

Built to the proverbial nines and fitted with an Exact 2 MM phono cartridge, Planar 3 also sports a stiff, lightweight, laminated plinth as well as a thicker metal-skin phenolic top brace complimented by a 3mm phenolic bottom brace. Intentionally mounted whereincreased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing), the double-braced combination forms a structurally robust “stressed beam” assembly. The bearing housing itself includes a brass main hub central bearing with ameliorated fit and construction to reduce internal stress. And the subplatter provides extra boosts in accuracy and stiffness, while the platter's float-glass Optiwhite-polished 12mm rim lends sought-after elegance and furthered fidelity. Planar 3 50th Anniversary Edition rests on custom support feet that reduce vibration transfer and runs cool thanks to integrated cooling in the motor cover tray.

Rega backs this standout turntable, which will only be in production during 2023, with a lifetime manufacturer warranty against defects.
