Rega Strobe Kit

Watch your speed with Rega Strobe Kit

26 January 2018

Rega Research have just released a very handy little gadget for all you vinyl lovers out there. The Strobe Kit allows you to easily evaluate the speed of your turntable. Coupled with the speed adjustable Rega Neo PSU, you can now ensure your platter is always spinning in perfect time.

The hand-held strobe unit generates a 100 Hz pulsed light source for use with the supplied 180-line stroboscopic disc. Simply place the supplied stroboscopic disc directly on the turntable mat. With the player running at 33 1/3 RPM hold the strobe LED directly above the lines to evaluate the speed of the turntable:

• With your turntable rotating and the speed set at 331/3 RPM, place the stroboscopic disc over the
record spindle directly onto your turntable mat.
• Hold the strobe approximately 2-3 centimeters from the lines on the disc.
• If the lines freeze and remain stable, this indicates the turntable is running at the correct speed.
• If the lines on the disc are moving slowly clockwise, this indicates the turntable is running fast.
• If the lines on the disc are moving slowly anticlockwise, this indicates the turntable is running slow.
• TIP: To ensure an accurate reading it is recommended to hold a reference point such as a pencil
tip near the lines during rotation to easily identify if the lines are stable or rotating.
• If your turntable or power supply are adjustable, you can correct the speed of the turntable until the
lines are stable.
