Rega RP3 turntable (WTF?)
It was just a matter of time, I suppose. Almost exactly a year after Rega replaced their popular P1 record player with the upgraded RP1, the British company has introduced the new RP3.
I don’t know anything about itRega doesn’t tell me anythingbut Rega’s website informs the world that the RP3 is fitted with the new, hand-assembled RB303 tonearm and uses a low-vibration, low-noise 24V motor assembly, hand-tuned to its circuit. (Like the P3, the RP3 can be factory fitted with Rega's Elys 2 phono cartridge.)
Also employed is something Rega calls “Double Brace Technology,” resulting in a highly rigid, lightweight plinth for preventing energy absorption and reducing resonances.
Like the RP1, the RP3 is available in three plinth finishes: titanium, white, and cool grey. Will other, more vibrant, finishes be available? Will the RP3 replace the much-loved P3-24? Will Sookie choose Eric or Bill?
