Rega Planar 3 Turntable

A successor to the multi-award-winning RP3, the Planar 3 represents a groundbreaking re-design, spearheaded by Rega's esteemed designer, Roy Gandy, and his team. With over two years of development, the Planar 3 is a testament to Rega's commitment to innovation and excellence in turntable design.

At the heart of the Planar 3 is its lightweight, rigid plinth, a hallmark of Rega's engineering prowess. The plinth, constructed using a lightweight particulate core and a highly rigid phenolic resin skin, forms the foundation of the turntable's exceptional performance. This design philosophy has been taken to new heights with the Planar 3, featuring a lightweight acrylic laminated plinth with a new double brace system. This system, strategically placed between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing, creates a structurally sound "stressed beam" assembly, preventing energy absorption and unwanted resonance.

RB330 Precision Tonearm

The Planar 3 features the RB330 tonearm, designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, and over 35 years of tonearm design experience.

With a new bearing housing and intelligent mass redistribution in the tonearm tube, this arm reduces possible resonance points for stable, low-friction movement, extracting maximum detail from your vinyl.

Improved Sub Platter and Platter

Equipped with a new 24V low noise, low vibration motor, the Planar 3 ensures stable and consistent platter rotation, minimising mechanical noise for a clearer audio experience.

The turntable features a re-designed sub platter and float glass 'Optiwhite' polished edge platter, improving accuracy, stiffness, and overall performance. These enhancements ensure a more accurate playback of your vinyl records, bringing your music to life with stunning clarity and detail.

Double Brace Technology

The turntable's plinth incorporates a new double brace system, using lightweight acrylic laminated plinth with double thickness phenolic resin in key areas.

This "stressed beam" assembly enhances rigidity and reduces energy absorption and unwanted resonance, preserving the purity of your music.

Optional Elys 2 Cartridge

Every Elys 2 uses a pair of parallel wound coils wound in house. Two coil sets are then carefully assembled on custom jigs to create a working stereo generator and fitted to the cartridge body.

Optional Exact Cartridge

The Exact is the top tier of our handmade moving magnet range of cartridges.

Built to the tightest achievable tolerances and using an advanced ‘Vital’ profile, (a complex fine line micro-ground from a rectangular diamond billet).

Rega has used its engineering skill, years of experience and enormous amounts of care to squeeze a huge amount of performance out of the Planar 3 - performance that very little under $1,500 can rival.
