As part of Record Store Day 2018, Rega will be releasing a new turntable, courtesy news out of Vinyl Factory. The RSD UK deck “will be limited to just 500 units and is expected to be priced between the Planar 1 and Planar 2 decks at around £265.” That’s $370 in the U.S. (if it makes it over here). Courtesy VF:
Built around the plinth of Rega’s five-star Planar 2 turntable, the deck features a hand-built RB110 tonearm (factory fitted with a Rega Carbon cartridge) from the more affordable, but no less respected Planar 1. The Planar 1 also lends its platter to the new deck, albeit in a heavier variant and unique white design.
It will also include an RSD themed slipmat.
Record Store Day will be held on April 21. The list will drop in early March.
