Excerpt: The latest version of this legendary turntable now offers an optional external power supply, new plinth construction and the same motor found in the flagship P9. For less than $1000, this Rega is the perfect solution for analog lovers who want to amass a large LP collection before committing to a megabuck ‘table.
Excerpt: This must be classed as the best bang-for-buck table in the world. It has been around longer then sliced bread and is deceptively simple in appearance. There is no complicated tonearm arrangement that will always get out or alignment and need constant re-adjustment or suspension system to fight with. Just no nonsense time proven technology in an elegant package that works.
Excerpt: Few hi-fi components have lived longer or exerted greater influence than Rega's Planar 3 turntable. Its absolute simplicity helped inspire the 'back to basics' movement that rejected the complexities of much imported hi-fi, thus re-establishing the specialist British hi-fi industry that thrives today.
