Features of the New Planar 3


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 Rega's 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 integrated 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.Three plinth finishes available gloss black, gloss white and gloss red.

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.

DB Technology (Double Brace Technology)

"Mass absorbs energy - lost energy equals lost music!"

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.

Rega Elys 2 Moving Magnet (MM) Phono cartridge

A multi award winning, hand built moving magnet cartridge with three point mounting system.

Each one of Rega's 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.

Output: 6.8 - 7.2mV
Stylus: Elliptical
Fixing: Rega three point fixing
Coils: High Spec parallel wound coils
Colour: Blue
Tracking Pressure: 1.75g
