The brand Rega has been synonymous with turntables since the ’70s when they first released the Planar 2 and 3. Still built in the UK, down in Southend-on-Sea, this is their current entry level turntable, brand new. It is an ideal present for teenagers and students getting into vinyl for the first time. Or even those older, wanting to play their stash of classic LP’s in the loft, but don’t want the outlay of a high end deck.
At this price, there’s little else to compare sound quality wise. As it stands, everything required is included, cartridge/needle etc. There are also plenty of upgrades and modifications readily available to improve performance further. Be it Rega’s own Performance pack or other 3rd party products.
