REGA Planar 10 (incl factory fitted Apheta 3 MC cartridge)
For the Planar 10, Rega have used the most advanced materials and engineering solutions built around a supremely lightweight plinth to ensure the greatest level of performance.
Like its sibling the Planar 8, the Planar 10 was inspired by the ultimate Rega turntable, the Naiad. They decided early on that the new Planar 10 was to be developed and engineered to encapsulate the essence of the Naiad at a more affordable price. The Planar 10 narrows the gap between itself and the Naiad even further by using more exotic materials, carefully selected to reduce mass and improve rigidity throughout the design. New innovations in hub bearing, sub platter, motor and drive belt design have led to even greater accuracy in turntable speed which directly improve sound performance.
The Planar 10 features the new RB3000 tonearm fitted with an improved, low mass, precision bias housing. Rega pioneered a completely new low mass, central hub bearing assembly with improved mechanical integrity. For the first time on a Rega production turntable, a ceramic top brace delivers ultimate rigidity and accuracy whilst creating the perfect platform between tonearm and central bearing. Finally, this entirely new player is controlled by Rega’s most advanced electronic power supply housed in a brand-new, full metal custom case designed to match the latest range of Rega electronics.
Available with a brand new MC cartridge, the Apheta 3, as a recommended option. The cartridge was developed alongside the Planar 10 using Rega’s most advanced "Fine Line" diamond profile.
Rega believe that the Planar 10 and Apheta 3 combination sets new accuracy standards in retrieving information from the record groove making this a truly ‘state of the art’ player.
