Rega Planar 2 Turntable - Gloss Red
We love the simplicity, beauty and build quality of Rega Turntables, and the P2 is a cracker - it not only looks great, but sounds great too. Rega have been building turntables at their factory in Southend on Sea for over 40 years. Match it up with a Blue Aura v40* Valve Amp and a pair of ps40 speakers and you'll have a cracking set-up for your vinyl for the price of one of those fancy-dan smart phones.
The Rega Planar 2 has been developed alongside the recently released Planar 3. Featuring the brand new RB220 tonearm which is packed with groundbreaking new features.
A new 24v, low noise motor, acrylic laminated plinth, newly designed central bearing and so much more. Every feature of this innovative new turntable is designed to extract the maximum amount of information and detail from your vinyl collection.
The Technical Stuff & Key Features:
Tonearm - Featuring the brand new RB220 tonearm which is packed with groundbreaking new features. Incorporating new ultra low friction, Rega designed, bespoke, zero play ball bearings (Patent Pending), housed within a brand new, stiffer and lightweight bearing housing which was developed with a new automatic bias setting negating the need for the user to set bias, making it almost completely plug and play apart from simple arm balancing. The new housing also includes an integrated arm clip and uses Rega's latest custom aluminium arm tube.
Hub bearing - The Planar 2 has a new 11mm self securing brass bearing (Patent Pending) offering improved fit and less stress on the bearing preventing the transfer of potential energy.
