You certainly couldn’t accuse Rega of resting on their laurels. Over the previous year or so there have been some serious upgrades to older favourites: like the new Brio-R amplifier, Apollo-R CD and RP3 turntable, and now the P5 makes way for the rather splendid RP6 turntable.
Retailing at £798 in a variety of different piano gloss colour finishes, it certainly puts down a serious marker at this price point.
By rejecting fancy gimmicks, Rega have concentrated their effort in ensuring that all the investment has been put into manufacturing the key parts to the highest grade possible.
The RP6 features the newly updated RB303 tonearm, a precision main bearing, a low vibration, low noise 24v motor, TTPSU power supply with the remodelled good looks of the new casework and Rega’s Double Brace Technology. DB Technology provides a stiffened brace between the tonearm mounting and main bearing hub to prevent energy absorption and resonances that degrade sound quality.
Both Edinburgh and Glasgow have the RP6 on demonstration, so come in and have a listen to how good vinyl replay can be at an attractive price.
