Rega announced yesterday the launch of the latest turntable to their range, the Rega RP3 turntable.
With the launch of the Rega RP1 at the end of last year, Rega have certainly been turning the heat up on their competitors with their new RP range of turntables. The RP3 turntable takes elements from both the RP1 and it's predecessor, the Rega P3-24 turntable.
The RP3 uses the P3-24 as its base, but improves sound quality with its brand new hand assembled RB303 tonearm, precision main bearing and a low vibration low noise 24v motor assembly, which is hand tuned to further reduce vibration.
The RP3 also features Rega's new DB Technology (Double Brace Technology) - a phenloic resin double brace mounted specifically where increased rigidity is required between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing. This forms a structurally sound "stressed beam" assembly.
These additions bring the Rega RP3 above and beyond the performance of its predecessor, and should provide dedicated vinyl lovers an impressive sound at an incredibly competitive price - and giving those already considering the Rega RP1 some very serious thought!
The Rega RP3 turntable is available both with a Rega Elys 2 cartirdge, or without a cartridge - giving you a choice of your own cartridge if desired. It also comes in the same colour options as the RP1, Titanium, Cool Grey and White.
