The Rega Planar 3 is an excellent turntable for the money. Well constructed with a very solid tonearm and cartridge with the option to swap out the cartridge for something better, if you so choose.
Local pickup or $11 flat rate shipping within Australia
Rega has been refining the Planar 3 for decades and the latest version which was updated in 2020 is the best one yet. It’s all about class-leading combination of sound, build and ease of use.
The plinth was revised and is more rigid thanks to a pair of phenolic braces on the top and bottom surfaces that strengthen the area between the tonearm and brass main bearing.
That main bearing was also redesigned to improve fit and reduce stress, and this latest version also upgrades to the subplatter, platter, motor PCB and feet.
The arm, now called the RB330 and has a new bearing housing and redesigned arm tube. These revisions aim to improve rigidity, control resonances and reduce friction – all good things for sound quality.
Planar 3 remains what it has always been: a simple, well-engineered deck that puts performance first.
Available in Gloss Black, Gloss White or a beautiful Gloss Red finish.
– Hand assembled RB330 tonearm
– 24v low noise motor / 12mm float glass platter
– Lightweight double braced plinth
– Precision main bearing
– Clear lid included
– Dimensions (lid closed) H 11.7 x W 44.7 x D 36 cm
– Weight 6kg

Please note: This Planar 3 model does not ship with a cartridge/stylus, however the Planar 3+ model is also available which comes pre-fitted with the fantastic Rega Elys 2 cartridge/stylus.
Designed using the latest 3D CAD & CAM technology, the new RB330 is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand new bearing housing, and Rega’s latest tonearm tube designed using intelligent redistribution of mass ensure this arm will exhibit fewer points of possible resonance. Extreme stability with almost friction free movement from the new high precision bearing assemblies guarantees to gather more information from your vinyl than ever before.

DB Technology (Double Brace Technology)
“Mass absorbs energy – lost energy equals lost music!”
Rega has pioneered the use of lightweight rigid plinths. Clever use of lightweight particulate core with a highly rigid phenolic resin skin became the foundations of the high level of performance achieved by the now iconic original Planar range.
The new Planar 3 takes this design philosophy to the next level. A lightweight acrylic laminated plinth strengthened using a new improved double brace system mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) which forms a structurally sound “stressed beam” assembly. This rigid plinth design prevents energy absorption and unwanted resonance, which will add unnatural distortions to the music.
Equally, heavier mass can transfer more unwanted energy, such as motor or bearing noise directly into the rotating record. The use of braces instead of the complete skin allows double thickness phenolic resin in these key areas while providing further weight reduction to the plinth which directly addresses the issue of mass absorption and unwanted energy transmission.
