Rega Planar 3    R4500.00



Classic Rega planar 3 turntable with the legendary RB300 tonearm. A brand new Rega Carbon Stylus is part of the package and the platter is an upgrade Amphibian Audio naked frosted acrylic platter.

Fuss free good performance turntable with the timeless look. 

This one has the textured black Formica finish which I prefer to the smoother black ones.

Turntable is I a really nice condition. Obviously a new belt is fitted. The bearing has been cleaned and re lubricted with fresh Black Oil.  A new pair of RCA connectors will ensure hassle free connection for years to come. 
Preventative maintenance done on the motor control circuit with new components so that too will give many years of reliable performance.

Rega still supports all parts on this turntable so it's a very safe buy with spare parts available.

The lid has no gauges or cracks just the usual mild swirls at this age.



As an option a new clear Rega lid is available as a trade up for R450.00
Together with the frosted platter this makes a really nice visual statement. 



Grab it now. These are getting scarce. 


Prefer a JHB sale and collection.

When you bring it we can compare.
The acrylic has less ringing than glass and helps sink stylus induced vibration out the record. 
It results in a more relaxed sound over glass. 

It is radical as an upgrade over the RP1 phenolic and mediate  platters used on late P2 models as well as NAD, Moth and Goldring variants of the P2.
