As icons go, there are few that can match the timeless majesty of Rega’s Planar 3turntable. While this midrange model has gone by a few names over the years, each incarnation has always pertained to the number three and the latest revision of the classic belt-driven, low-mass unsuspended plinth turntable is its most substantial yet.

The perfect choice for those starting out on their vinyl adventure, it sounds every bit like a Rega should. By which we mean every spin of an LP dishes out a performance that is both assured and fun. The soundstage creates a sense of space and three dimensionality that is both consistent and endlessly enjoyable, and the bass response is quite unlike anything else at the price. When we reviewed it back in HFC 411, we noted that the Planar 3’s consistency and ability was admirable, but what really impressed was its fine neutrality. The assurance with which it handles such a wide variety of music is astonishing and secured it an Editor’s Choice badge, our highest accolade.
