LAB REVIEW

The Planar 3 is the latest in aĀ longĀ lineĀ of Rega audiophile turntables, preceeded by the RP3, multiple generations of the P3, and the original Planar 3 of 1977.Ā This iteration of theĀ turntable, 2 years in the making, features the impressive debut of theĀ RB330 tonearm, 12mm Optiwhite glass platter, redesigned subplatter and main bearing housing, and numerousĀ other revisions resulting inĀ remarkable performance and stunningĀ design.

"Rega has worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.The new ā€˜Planar 3ā€™ is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model."
