Replacing the multi award winning What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took Rega's team of designers headed up by Rega’s Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new ‘Planar 3’ following the biggest re-design of the iconic ‘Three’ model ever seen. The ‘Planar 3’ is a completely new turntable carrying over just two components from the previous RP model. Rega's team have worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, performance.

Elys 2 Cartridge
Each one of Rega’s moving magnet cartridges are meticulously hand-assembled to the highest standard by their highly trained technicians. The design and assembly procedure are focused on one simple goal, extracting as much music from your vinyl as possible. Each one uses a pair of parallel wound coils, which are then carefully assembled on custom jigs to create a working stereo generator. Each cartridge is then tested and checked over two days to ensure all of the strict parameters for each model are met before either packing or fitting to a Rega turntable. The multi award winning Rega moving magnet range offers unrivalled clarity, engaging stereo imaging, and a natural dynamic performance, putting you in touch with your vinyl collection like never before.
