Rega Planar 10 Apheta3

New Rega Planar 10 and Apheta 3 MC cartridge

11 September 2019

Rega Research this week unveils it’s highest performing turntable to date – all new Planar 10, using the most advanced materials and engineering solutions built around a supremely lightweight plinth to ensure the greatest level of performance.

Like its sibling the Planar 8, the new Planar 10 was inspired by the ultimate Rega turntable, the Naiad. Planar 10 was developed and engineered to encapsulate the essence of the Naiad at a more affordable price. It narrows the gap between its predecessor, RP10, and the Naiad even further by utilising materials carefully selected to reduce mass and improve rigidity throughout the design. New innovations including hub bearing, sub platter, motor and drive belt design have led to even greater accuracy in turntable speed which directly improves sound performance.

The Planar 10 features a new RB3000 tonearm fitted with an improved, low mass, precision bias housing. Rega has pioneered a completely new low mass, central hub bearing assembly with improved mechanical integrity and for the first time on a Rega production turntable, a ceramic top brace delivers ultimate rigidity and accuracy whilst creating the perfect platform between tonearm and central bearing. Finally, this entirely new player is controlled by Rega’s most advanced electronic power supply housed in a brand-new, full metal custom case designed to match the latest range of Rega electronics.

Alongside Planar 10, Rega brings us a brand new moving coil cartridge, Apheta 3, available as a factory fitted or standalone option. Apheta 3 uses Rega’s most advanced “Fine Line” diamond profile and was developed in parallel with Planar 10. As the recommended match for the Planar 10 turntable the Apheta 3 factory fitted package is available at a discounted rate, details below.

The introduction of Planar 10 completes the transformation of Rega’s turntable range from ‘RP’ models to Planar models, started back in 2016 with Planar 1.

Saving the best til last? Oh yes.
