Rega Planar 3 in oak

Rega Planar 3 in Light Oak

15 April 2024

NEW for 2024 – Light oak effect Planar 3 – available with Elys2 or Exact MM factory fitted.

A new colour is available for Rega’s most iconic product – the Planar 3 turntable. A light oak plinth joins the high gloss black, white or red choices for 2024, available with Rega factory-fitted Elys2 (£799) or Exact (£880) moving magnet cartridge.

Rega Planar design principles have always been based on the use of a lightweight rigid plinth. Current Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a 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.

This light oak effect turntable has all the features of current Planar 3 but in a finish more able to blend in with some listening environments. As a reminder, Planar 3 features:
