  • Description

    The Planar 6 has one goal, to reproduce your vinyl as accurately as possible. We have engineered every aspect of this turntable to extract as much detail from the vinyl surface as possible. Advanced materials and engineering solutions have been used throughout the design to ensure the greatest level of performance. The Neo PSU offers electronic speed change, advanced anti-vibration control and user adjustable electronic fine speed adjustment only found on the RP10 until now.
     

    The Planar 6 is built around the huge success of the RP8 and RP10 turntables. It is the first new Rega turntable to be constructed with an ultra-lightweight Tan-Cast 8 polyurethane foam core plinth (a material developed for the aerospace industry) . This material is sandwiched between a new HPL (high pressure laminate). HPL is exceptionally thin whilst extremely rigid and is presented in a stunning Polaris matt grey finished with high gloss polymer black edge trim.
     

    The Planar 6 now benefits from a single piece, machined aluminum sub-platter, a new 24v motor hand tuned and matched to its own NEO power supply and custom drive pulley fitted with our upgrade drive belt as standard.
     

    The Neo PSU 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 produce 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.


    REVIEWS:
     

    HI-Fi Choice: “The overall presentation is aided in no small part by the tonal realism that the Planar 6 possesses. Voices in particular manage to sound consistently believable and there is never any trouble differentiating between different vocalists in the same piece. Crucially, when you play something that you know extremely well, like Little Feat’s Rock And Roll Doctor, the Rega doesn’t mess with any of the basics of the track instead effortlessly bringing its own abilities to your attention. The piano is detailed and weighty and has a wonderful sense of speed and finesse to it, making a piece of music that has often been described as infectiously groovy, sound even more so.”


    “There are aspects to the Planar 6’s design that point to new approaches from Rega. The jury may still be out on the Polaris grey nish, but the good news is that once you start listening, any reservations on its looks quickly fade away. Partnered with Rega’s Ania moving-coil cartridge it delivers a level of performance that is pretty much untouchable for less than £1,500 (That’s about $2k in US dollars. -TSO Ed.). It may have seemed as though it took forever to arrive, but the resulting Planar 6 is a simply outstanding turntable that’s well worth the wait." - Ed Selley
