David Spencer has returned to Stereoland to give a rundown on a product he personally owns, the Rega Planar 3. I joined him in unboxing the turntable and learned a lot from his personal experience with it. Here are some great features on the Planar 3 that make it one of the best turntables around the $1000 price point:
- The new RB330 tonearm has improved bearings, a new re-designed counterweight, and a new bias assembly to push the resonance lower than ever before. This tonearm tracks with incredible stability and precision.
- New feet to help reduce vibrations from the house and stepping on the floor (this is more important than you may realize).
- The sub-platter has been completely redesigned to provide more accurate rotations.
- Rega has included new improved cables with Neutrik connectors.
Check in next week for another product spotlight with David and myself!
