REGA P3 Turntable, in great shape and with upgrades.
The REGA P3 has long been been praised for its’ natural,
expressive and dynamic performance and it set a standard that few ‘tables could
approach. It vividly portrays music with very good dynamics, a wide, deep sound
stage and excellent sense of rhythm, timing and when new was regarded as one of
the best sounding turntables in its’ price range.
The P3 is equipped with the RB300 tonearm which has been
upgraded with an Iso-Kinetic underslung Counterweight which improved the image
focus, tightened bass the response and eliminated the already negligible top
end glare. The stock drive belt was replaced with the optional Rega
“White” belt which noticeably improved the soundstage depth and proved itself
better at extracted the vocals. While the stock P3 sounded very good indeed
these improvements took a great sounding turntable to a higher level of
performance which noticeably outperforms the stock rendition. Both the original
counterweight and drive belt will be provided.
Physically, the P3 as offered is a 9 of 10 on the A’gon
scale; the base is unmarred, the glass platter is scratch free and the
dustcover is free of cracks and wear with no discernable scratches or scrapes.
The turntable has been responsibly used in a smokeless environment.
The cartridge mounted on the Rega as seen
in the photos is NOT, repeat NOT included in the asking
price. The P3 will be provided with the original felt mat and owners’
pamphlet. The original box is no longer available but the turntable will be very
well packaged for shipment. Sales to the ConUS only. Actual shipping charges to
be determined and applied upon purchase.

It’s one of the best sounding turntables I’ve ever used; and
I’ve owned quite a few over my 50+ years in HiFi. It still blows me with its’
evocative, emotional and compelling performance.
