Price-to-Performance Breakthrough Rega Planar 3 Turntable Features Top-to-Bottom Redesign: P3 Includes RB330 Tonearm, Elys 2 MM Phono Cartridge, and New Components Designed for This 'Table

Deemed "the best value on the market" by What Hi-Fi?, the Rega Planar 3 (P3) turntable is charged with replacing one of the most iconic models, the five-time Product of the Year Award-winning RP3, in high-end history. Completely redesigned and offering tremendous enhancements in the fields of ergonomics, usability, and sonics, the stylish Planar 3 (P3) is a price-to-performance breakthrough that delivers insightful playback marked by excellent cohesion, sumptuous tonal balance, accurate pacing, addictive resolution, and – perhaps most importantly – fun. Carrying over just two components (motor and dustcover) from its revered predecessor, the wonderfully built P3 features a new tonearm, new plinth, new bracing, new main bearing, new platter, new subplatter, new feet, and a new motor cover. While "new" means little unless the connotation comes with improvements, in the case of P3, everything is enhanced to allow the music on your vinyl LPs to flourish with more detail, clarity, nuance, depth, dimensionality, and liveliness. No wonder it took Rega and chief designer Roy Gandy two years before the engineering team was fully satisfied with the results.

"We think this new version is the best RP3 yet, adding extra servings of clarity, precision and insight to an already musical sound. Want the best value on the market? This is it."
What Hi-Fi?, 5-star review

A primary key to P3's incredible sound resides with the brand-new RB330 tonearm. A bias assembly with a stuffer vertical housing bearing, integrated arm clip, and refined spring housing contribute to greater stability, near-friction-free movement, and advanced information retrieval. In addition, RB330 touts a low-capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs and a 100g mild steel balance weight for optimal precision. P3 also sports a stiffer, more attractive-looking glossy plinth as well as a thicker metal-skin phenolic top brace complimented by a 3mm phenolic bottom brace. Its bearing housing includes a redesigned brass main hub central bearing with ameliorated fit and construction to reduce internal stress. P3's subplatter provides boosts in accuracy and stiffness, while the platter's float-glass Optiwhite-polished 12mm rim lends sought-after elegance and furthered fidelity. Rega also re-tailored the feet for reduced vibration transfer and introduced integrated cooling into the motor cover tray. P3 seriously has – and does – it all for a price that will makes you (and your records) spin with delight. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
