Rega Launches New Planar 6 Turntable At Audio T Manchester

Posted: 15th July 2017
Share:  

We're delighted to be hosts for Rega's official and exclusive launch of the new Rega Planar 6 turntable held at Audio T Manchester on Saturday 15th July!

Rega have been developing a replacement for the RP6 for many months. In fact, development of this product has been ongoing for over two years! This is a turntable designed to achieve the best possible performance, re-engineered from the ground up to achieve a level of performance never heard at this price point.

 

Here are some of the Rega Planar 6 features:

- Super lightweight foam core plinth.
 
- Plinth laminate: New Polaris HPL (high pressure laminate). Non marking matt finish scratch resistant high rigidity skin.
 
- High gloss black polymer edging.
 
- Upgrade white drive belt fitted as standard.
 
- Custom dual layer smoked / clear float glass platter.
 
- New Single piece aluminium sub platter.
 
- New Custom machined high precision drive pulley.
 
- Patent pending central brass hub.
 
- Rega’s double brace technology, with integral custom matched aluminium tonearm and hub pillars to ensure maximum rigidity and accuracy.
 
- New NEO power supply (pictured below), advanced anti-vibration motor circuit, with user adjustable electronic fine speed adjustment. (as seen on the RP10 PSU) The Neo uses the RP10 DSP (digital signal processing) generator built upon a high stability crystal. The DSP generator will divide the accurate signal from the crystal to the exact frequency required to turn the platter at the selected speed. The DSP generator will also generate a near perfect sinusoidal waveform to drive the motor. This, along with an efficient drive amplifier, generates a 24V AC balanced signal of less than 0.15% distortion, which is completely un-affected by any changes in the mains/line voltage and conditions. This then drives the turntables anti-vibration circuit, which is situated beneath the turntable.

 
- RB330 handmade precision tonearm with custom stainless weight.
 
- 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.
 
Available with Ania MC cartridge factory fitted.
 
UK SSP Planar 6 £998 (Without cartridge).
UK SSP Planar 6 £1398 (With Ania cartridge fitted).
