It may appear to be straightforward and simple, but that’s the beauty of the award-winning Rega P5 turntable. Don’t be fooled, the P5 is a masterpiece of effective design. The big news is the new RB-700 tonearm, improving on the tradition of its famous sibling, the RB-300. Made of aluminum and stainless steel, the RB-700 is internally wired with much higher quality cable and reassuringly tight in construction, it is fully equipped with anti-skate bias setting, tracking force adjustment, and a hydraulically-damped arm-lift mechanism.The tonearm has such a immense effect on sound quailty and the tolerances on the RB-700 are impressive by any standards.
The turntable is built with a specially-designed low mass plinth that will not trap vibrations or resonance. The P5's decoupled, electronically controlled motor is tuned for vibration-free speed stability. This motor is tested rigorously so the P5 delivers exacting speed control. We love the Rega P5 for its set-it-and-forget-it simplicity and for its genuinely stunning sonic virtues. This table raises the bar for audiophile-quality vinyl playback under $2,000. We recommend spending as much on a matching phono cartridge as your budget will allow, as we've found this table to be a worthy home for any reference-level cartridge. The P5 will absolutely shock you with its ability to make record collection come to life in your listening room. And it looks great, too! 100% Money Back Guaranteed!
“The P5 is an unambiguously fine, musical LP player, considered on its own and in comparison with its less expensive sibling—and it does nothing but add luster to Rega’s already well-deserved reputation for value… I can now go a step further and recommend the P5 to anyone who’s lived with a humbler Rega—even more so to the hobbyist who’s upgrading from a different budget deck—because it represents a step up in every way, musically and sonically!”
