Rega Planar 6 platter and custom drive pulley

Rega Planar 6 revealed

25 July 2017

Rega Research’s prolific development of new turntables continues with the long-awaited revelation of the new Planar 6. Two years in development, it is certainly worth the wait.

Planar 6 replaces the much-loved RP6; entirely re-engineered utilising some of the core technologies from Rega’s flagship RP8 and RP10 turntables.

The deck itself has a host of upgrades from its predecessor:

  • ultra lightweight foam core plinth
  • an exceptionally thin but ultra-rigid Polaris HPL (high pressure laminate)
  • a single piece, machined aluminium sub-platter and custom drive pulley
  • patent pending, ultra-low friction central brass hub
  • new high spec Rega 24v low noise synchronous motor – each motor matched by hand to its own NEO PSU ensuring optimum anti-vibration control
  • new smoked dust cover
  • new aluminium foot trims and Planar style feet.
  • new RB330 handmade precision tonearm with custom stainless weight
  • upgrade drive belt as standard

Planar 6 ships with the new NEO external power supply housing the DSP used in Rega’s reference RP10 turntable.

It’s available in only one finish, Polaris Grey (matt and scratch resistant), and RRP is £998 or special package price including Rega’s Ania MC cartridge (factory fitted) of £1398.
