Product Description

Line Circle
The new Planar 3 elevates its design with a lightweight acrylic laminated plinth fortified by an enhanced double brace system strategically placed to enhance rigidity, minimizing energy absorption and resonance for pristine sound reproduction. By focusing on key areas with double thickness phenolic resin braces, this innovative approach reduces plinth weight while effectively mitigating unwanted energy transfer, ensuring a cleaner audio experience devoid of distortions.

Rega Planar 3 Turntable (Exact Cartridge)

Replacing the acclaimed RP3, which was the recipient of multiple What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year awards, posed a formidable challenge. Lead by Rega's Roy Gandy, our team of designers dedicated two years to crafting the all-new 'Planar 3,' marking the most extensive redesign in the history of the iconic 'Three' model. The 'Planar 3' emerges as a completely revamped turntable, retaining only two components from its predecessor.

Rega has long been at the forefront of lightweight yet sturdy plinth construction. Leveraging a combination of lightweight particulate core and a resilient phenolic resin skin laid the groundwork for the exceptional performance of the original Planar range.

The new Planar 3 elevates this design ethos to unprecedented heights. Its lightweight acrylic laminated plinth is fortified with an enhanced double brace system strategically positioned to bolster rigidity between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing, forming a robust "stressed beam" structure. This design effectively mitigates energy absorption and unwanted resonance, preventing distortions in the music. Moreover, by focusing reinforcement in key areas rather than the entire surface, double thickness phenolic resin is utilized, reducing plinth weight and addressing issues of mass absorption and energy transmission.

Key Features:

  • Continuously awarded What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year from 2016 to 2021
  • RB330 precision tonearm
  • Optional factory-fitted Rega Elys 2 MM cartridge
  • Optional factory-fitted Rega Exact MM cartridge
  • Double brace technology
  • 24 V low-noise, low-vibration motor
  • 12 mm float glass opti-white polished platter
  • Clear dust cover included
  • Compatible with Rega Neo turntable power supply (sold separately)
  • Three high gloss plinth options and light oak effect (New for 2024)
  • Advanced EBLT drive belt fitted as standard from March 2021
  • Lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects
