Price-to-Performance Breakthrough Rega Planar 3 Turntable Features Top-to-Bottom Redesign: P3 Includes RB330 Tonearm, Optional Elys 2 Cartridge, Enhanced Components
PLEASE NOTE: Includes Michell Engineering Tecnoweight counterweight ($180 dollar value)
Deemed "the best value on the market" by What Hi-Fi? and on the Stereophile Recommended Componentslist, 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.
