Product Information

The Planar 6 has one goal: to reproduce your vinyl as accurately as possible. Rega has engineered every aspect of this turntable to extract as much detail from the vinyl surface as possible. Advanced materials and engineering solutions have been used throughout the design to ensure the greatest level of performance. The Neo PSU offers electronic speed change, advanced anti-vibration control and user adjustable electronic fine speed adjustment only found on the RP10 until now.

The Planar 6 is built around the huge success of the RP8 and RP10 turntables. It is the first new Rega turntable to be constructed with an ultra lightweight Tancast 8 polyurethane foam core plinth (a material developed for the aerospace industry). This material is sandwiched between a new HPL (high pressure laminate). HPL is exceptionally thin whilst extremely rigid and is presented in a stunning Polaris matt grey finished with high gloss polymer black edge trim.

The Planar 6 now benefits from a single piece, machined aluminum sub-platter, a new 24v motor hand tuned and matched to its own NEO power supply and custom drive pulley fitted with our upgrade drive belt as standard.

The Neo PSU uses the RP10 DSP (digital signal processing) generator built upon a high stability crystal. The DSP generator will divide the accurate signal from the crystal to the exact frequency required to turn the platter at the selected speed. The DSP generator will also produce a near perfect sinusoidal waveform to drive the motor. This, along with an efficient drive amplifier, generates a 24V AC balanced signal of less than 0.15% distortion, which is completely un-affected by any changes in the mains/line voltage and conditions. This then drives the turntables anti-vibration circuit, which is situated beneath the turntable.

Upgraded to the Rega from a Pro-Ject DC Carbon Esprit with an Audio Tech VM540 cartridge (not a fan of the Ortofon 2M red cart.). The sound stage and definition is all superior with the P6 compared to the DC. The sound got better after 20 hours of listening as the cartridge got to its "sweet" spot. The DC TT sounded good but "thin" in comparison to the Rega. No buyers remorse here for sure. This one is a keeper, I will look into a MC cartridge to upgrade too when the time comes to bring up the performance up a notch.

Looking to upgrade my Pro-Ject DC Esprit as I get more serious into vinyl listening. This table has excellent reviews and should be a marked improvement over my current table.

What sound difference is there between the Exact MM cartridge and the Ania MC cartridge?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2022
  Thanks for your inquiry. Sound difference between two cartridges is complicated to quantify. A moving coil cartridge has inherently lower stylus mass and tracks higher frequencies slightly better. A properly installed and calibrated Ania will very likely sound better.
Would this tt/cart pair well with a NAD C368 and a Moon Audio LP110 v.2?
William H on May 1, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Rega and NAD are a great combination. NAD components have always included superior phono preamps but a well-engineered phono preamp added to the system should provide a subtle improvement given its adjustable input gain and capacitance matching settings.
