Rega Planar 10 now on dem

5 August 2021

Planar 10 is the reference turntable from Rega Research, giant of all things turntable related, and we’re delighted to finally have it on permanent demonstration here at Adventures.

Inspired by the ultimate Rega turntable, the Naiad, Planar 10 is built around an ultra-light skeletal plinth constructed from Tancast 8 core and covered in a high-pressure laminate (HPL) skin. It is the first production turntable to use ceramic bracing which provides the ultimate rigid surface for mounting the precision reference RB3000 tonearm and custom central bearing assembly.

The Ultimate in Rega Performance
The Planar 10 is also fitted with a bespoke ceramic oxide platter which is diamond cut during manufacture for ultimate accuracy and speed stability. The Rega 24 V synchronous motor is controlled by Rega’s most advanced outboard power supply, the bespoke P10-PSU. This supply delivers the ultimate in motor vibration reduction, electronic fine speed adjustment and the convenience of electronic speed change. The Planar 10 is designed to deliver the ultimate in Rega performance by extracting more information from the vinyl groove than ever before.

Apehta 3 MC Cartridge
Our demo deck is fitted with Rega’s Apheta 3 moving coil cartridge which features a super high-powered, neodymium magnet and a meticulously hand wound coil, housed within a single piece, aluminium anodised body and protected by a CAD designed, smoked rigid cover to protect the internal fine wires. It is the perfect partner for both Planar 8 and Planar 10 turntables.

The combination is sounding great in the shop, very detailed indeed but not clinical. Definitely worth calling in for a listen, or book a dem on 01244 345576 or email
