This is the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen. The new RB330 tonearm featuring new bias assembly, lower friction, horizontal and vertical bearings, new low capacitance phono cable, Improved double braces; re-designed bearing housing, sub platter, New float glass 'Optiwhite' 12mm platter; new motor control PCB.

Colour: Finished in Gloss Black

Planar 3 with factory fitted with Exact cartridge

Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took our 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.


New features of the Planar Three

RB330 tonearm - Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 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.

  •  Featuring a new bias assembly, re-designed stiffer vertical bearing housing, integrated
     arm clip and an improved spring housing with easier to read numbers.
  •  Rega made, new low capacitance phono cable with Neutrik plugs,
  •  Improved lower friction, precision horizontal and vertical bearings
  •  New design 100g mild steel balance weight.
     

Plinth - High gloss acrylic, laminated plinth, stiffer and vastly improved appearance, ergonomically positioned power switch.Two plinth finishes at launch: gloss black & gloss white

Double braces - Improved thicker 3mm phenolic bottom brace and new metalised skin phenolic top brace.

Bearing housing – Re-designed brass main hub central bearing, improved fit and construction reducing stress on the bearing itself.

Sub platter - Re-designed sub platter, improved accuracy and improved stiffness.

Platter - New float glass ‘Optiwhite’ polished rim 12mm – Improved accuracy in manufacture and stunning looks.

Re-designed foot - New improved foot to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.

24V motor - Improved new motor control PCB with integration for the addition of TT-PSU for electronic speed change and improved advanced anti-vibration circuit (sold separately).

Motor cover tray with integrated cooling.

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 original Planar range.

The new Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a new improved double brace system mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) which 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.

  • Hand assembled RB330 tonearm.
  • 24v low noise motor / 12mm float glass platter.
  • Lightweight double braced plinth.
  • Precision main bearing.
  • Factory fitted Exact cartridge. 
  • Compatible with the TT-PSU electronic speed change and power supply box (optional).

About Exact Moving Magnet Cartridge

Each one of our moving magnet cartridges are meticulously hand assembled to the highest standard by our 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.

Hand built moving magnet cartridge with three point mounting system and Vital profile diamond stylus with zero tolerance channel balance.

Specifications

  • Output: 6.8 - 7.2mV
  • Stylus: Vital. Complex fine line micro-ground from a rectangular diamond billet.
  • Fixing: Rega three point fixing
  • Coils: High Spec parallel wound coils
  • Colour: Yellow
  • Tracking Pressure 1.75g
