    Rega planar 3 and beyond

    Hi I have a Rega Planar 3. A proper old one from around 1986. When bought it was paired with a NAD 3020e amp which was later superseded by a Marantz PM6003 amp both of which worked wonderfully. However the turntable has spent a lot of time out of favour, for one reason or another but is now...

    Rega Planar 6 dust cover

    Hi everyone I've recently come into ownership of a Rega Planar 6 and had a query around the dust cover. To get the lid to stay open it has to be lifted straight up to 90 degrees to the table, it won't just float in the air at say a 70 degree angle. Is this how it's actually supposed to be or...

    Rega Planar 2 + io + Oberon 5?

    I’m looking to return to vinyl, and was originally planning with a budget of around £1000. This aligned to Rega Planar 1 + io + Oberon 1 (but no speaker stands which I’d also need). Aesthetically, I’d love floor standers. I’m considering pushing budget a little further to £1350, which would...

    Question How long are the rca leads on the Rega Planar 1

    Can anyone tell me the length, I can’t seem to find this info and I wonder if they would reach my receiver that’s a couple of meters away. Doesn’t seem to be any photos of the rear of the TT anywhere, I believe the cables are fixed?

    Upgrade Marantz PM7000N for better phono stage with KEF LS50

    Hi - my first post. During Covid-19 lockdown, my 20 year old Arcam amp had its chips. So started the search for a new amp. I decided on a Marantz PM7000N thinking it would be good for the Google smart speakers i have (which isn't that great with voice controls) and the KEF LS50s i've got. It...

    Question Project Debut 3 to Planar 2?

    I have one of the older Project Debut 3 editions with OE5 cart, the steel platter was replaced with an acrylic one and in honesty, the belt is probably due a replacement. I've been toying with transitioning to another for a while instead of throwing a new cart at it. I originally wanted a...

    Hi, hope you can help with what is probably a stupidly simple question ... I have inherited a Rega Planar 2 turntable (nice) but the RBS phono plugs have been snipped off.
