The new Rega P3 - 24 coloured turntables. (Please specify the desired colour into the "Comment" field during the checkout).
WHAT HI-FI product of the year 2007 and WHAT HI-FI product of the year 2008.
High gloss High performance P3-24 turntables.
The new P3-24 coloured models are available in all of these
stunning new finishes.
Supplied with the TT-PSU as standard offering improved stability & electronic speed change combined with unrivalled sonic performance for the money.
The inspiration for the design of the P3 - 24 did not come from an evolution of the last P3 2000 model. Rather it came from re visiting the virtues of the original planar 3 turntable. These virtues gave us our design brief:
· No unnecessary frills.
· High performance.
· Outstanding musical sound performance for cost price.
· Rugged reliability
· High quality components
· A long life time
Most areas of the turntable have changed, let's start with the plinth.
The new plinth whilst being slim and attractive, offers high levels of rigidity by using phenolic resin laminates, with a high quality edging. It is a considerable improvement over the current P2.
High performance motor
The P3 - 24 uses the same very high quality low vibration motor, which is used in the P5 & 9 turntables. The clever controlling circuitry can be adjusted for phase angle of the motor coils resulting in very low vibration levels from the complete motor assembly.
This design change gives a considerable performance increase over the P3 2000.
The TT PSU first developed for the P7 turntable is a high quality outboard power supply; the TTPSU can be used as an affordable upgrade with the P3 - 24 turntable. Offering increased musical performance, by conditioning the electrical supply with a synthesised low distortion crystal controlled ac input. This also gives the added convenience of electronic speed change control.
Main bearing platter
The same high quality drive belt/main bearing and glass platter are carried over from the cast P3 2000.
The famous RB300 arm has been modified to improve production and give a higher musical sound performance. An improved vertical bearing housing has been used, which gives improved rigidity in the tonearms mounting, reducing the stresses in the main 13mm bearings. This assembly is topped off with the improved RB700 bias housing phono cable.
The P3 - 24 will also have the option of being available with the Rega Elys cartridge fitted.
Coloured turntable mats
It is still possible to customise the look of your Rega turntable using a variety of new coloured mats (optional).
