Special Edition 50th Anniversary Planar 3


Without a doubt, this is the best value in new turntables and is limited to production through the end of 2023. This is the top selling product for Rega this year for good reason. Presented in the hugely popular new walnut effect finish, the 50th anniversary Planar 3 is supplied with a hand tuned Neo PSU MK2 and the handmade Rega Exact moving magnet cartridge factory fitted. The drive system uses the Reference EBLT drive belt and 24V motor fitted with a custom CNC’d aluminum drive pulley to deliver the absolute best in performance and accuracy. The Anniversary Edition is badged with exclusive aluminum plinth and lid badges for the finishing touch. If you see this on backorder, contact us to place your order. Item will ship direct to you from Rega as long as they are available through end of December.

The RB330 tonearm was designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology and is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand-new bearing housing, and our latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before.

Walnut effect, laminated plinth. Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundations of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic Planar range.

24 V low noise low voltage precision motor and PCB assembly, fitted with a custom CNC machined aluminium pulley

Rega designed patented brass main hub central bearing, improved fit and construction reducing stress on the bearing itself.

3 mm phenolic bottom brace and metalized skin phenolic top brace. The 50th anniversary Planar 3 uses a lightweight laminated plinth strengthened using our double brace system. Mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) this forms a structurally sound “stressed beam” assembly. This rigid plinth design prevents energy absorption and unwanted resonance, which will add unnatural distortions to the music. Equally, heavier mass can transfer more unwanted energy, such as motor or bearing noise directly into the rotating record. The use of braces instead of the complete skin allows double thickness phenolic resin in these key areas while providing further weight reduction to the plinth which directly addresses the issue of mass absorption and unwanted energy transmission.

The Neo MK2 PSU is an advanced turntable power supply providing user controllable fine speed adjustment, an advanced anti-vibration motor circuit and the convenience of electronic speed change. The Neo MK2 reduces motor noise, improves speed stability and rotational speed accuracy.
