Rega Excels With The RP10 Turntable

Rega's new RP10 represents one of the biggest steps forward in the evolution of Roy Gandy's turntable design philosophies.

Rega's radical skeletal plinth design extends further and their constant success allows them to keep pushing the envelope in turntable design.

The RP10 includes a number of key features, including the RB2000 tonearm, a ceramic flywheel platter, and a custom power supply allowing total control and accuracy over both motor vibration and speed.

RP10 will also be available with the Alpheta MC cartridge factory fitted as a package.

Philip Sawyer, Managing Director at Synergy Audio Visual told StereoNET, "The RP10 is guaranteed to be the highest level of performance from a Rega turntable to date".

Sawyer went to to tell us about some of the technical aspects of the Rega RP10. "Too often overlooked in turntable design is the power supply. Inside Rega's custom designed case is an all new anti-vibration and speed control circuit dedicated to running the 24V low noise motor. The speed control of the motor is achieved by using a new DSP (Digital Signal Processor), built upon a high stability crystal".

Over three years has been spent developing the skeletal plinth design. It utilises a new stressed skin structure produced from thin phenolic skins sandwiching a featherweight nitrogen expanded, closed cell, polyolefin foam core. Being seven times lighter than the original Planar 3 plinth, prevents unwanted bearing and motor noise being transferred to the turntable and in turn, the record.

The RB2000 tonearm has been manufactured to Rega's highest standards, with a low mass, precision engineered vertical bearing assembly. The arm tube is hand polished and has been completely redesigned to redistribute mass and further reduce stresses and resonance.

The ceramic flywheel effect platter is produced from ceramic oxide powder which is compressed, fired and diamond cut to ensure perfect accuracy and flatness across the surface.

There is no doubt Rega continues to innovate, further refining their products each and every year.

The Rega RP10 is available now via selected retail outlets, at $6,499 RRP or $7,699 RRP with Alpheta Cartridge.
