Planar 6

£1,155

Turntables start getting serious at Planar 3; Planar 6 takes you to another level.

Designed around RP8 and RP10, Planar 6 benefits from an ultra-light but ultra-rigid plinth construction, a single piece, machined aluminium sub-platter, new hand-tuned 24 V motor and matched to its own Neo power supply. All of these contribute to stunning audio performance, and another Loud & Clear favourite.

Supplied without cartridge, Planar 6 can be paired with a factory-fitted Rega Exact, Ania or Ania Pro, or one of our own recommended cartridges – Dynavector 10×5 or 20×2, Audio Technica VM760/750/740 or other, just get in touch to discuss.

PLANAR 6
The Planar 6 is constructed around a unique ultra-light foam core plinth and HPL laminates. It is designed to deliver a level of performance beyond anything at this price. The Planar 6 features the RB330 tonearm and a dual-layer float glass platter. The supplied Neo turntable power supply provides convenient speed selection, advanced anti-vibration control, and electronic fine speed adjustment.

Ultra-Light
The Planar 6 is built around the huge success of the RP8 and RP10 turntables. It is the first new Rega turntable to be constructed with an ultra-lightweight Tancast 8 polyurethane foam core plinth (a material developed for the aerospace industry). This material is sandwiched between a new HPL (high pressure laminate). HPL is exceptionally thin whilst extremely rigid and is presented in a stunning Polaris matt grey finished with high gloss polymer black edge trim.

The Planar 6 now benefits from a single piece, machined aluminium sub-platter, a new 24 V motor hand tuned and matched to its own Neo power supply and custom drive pulley fitted with our upgrade drive belt as standard.

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.
