Summary: I actually own the planar 2,but saw no update for the entry. Currently using ortofon 2m bronze cart.,(UPGRADE TO BLACK)and a Graham Slee Gram amp 2 se phonostage. I must saw this set up made my return to vinyl very fullfilling. I can't get enough,just started collecting vinyl for about 4 month's and have over 100 and growing strong.Quite happy.
Excerpt: Even in 1992, yep.... that's 12 years ago Even then, my friends and family questioned why I wanted a turntable. Some folk wanted them because they had a established record collection, and wanted something to play records on. Invariably, they chose Midi system (remember those?!?) type arrangements. I chose the Rega Planar 2, and stick firmly behind it. It may have had a facelift, but essentially Rega are still kicking out superb turntables.
Excerpt: If you are reading a review of this type of turntable, then your probably a bit older than the Briteny Spears appreciation society members, and probably appreciate the sound of good well kept vinyl. The Rega ooozes solid build quality and just the cleanest sound. My niece saw my deck and pronounced they her family had 'one of those'... comparing it to her own Sony stack record deck.
