Rega is celebrating their 50th Anniversary with a very special edition of the legendary Rega Planar 3. A turntable package was designed and developed to maximize the performance of this model. As part of the celebration, Rega has put this anniversary package together at an incredible price that won't be repeatable!

Celebrating 50 Years of Rega Research Ltd.

From humble beginnings in 1973, making just a handful of turntables for friends, Rega has since grown into a multimillion-pound audio engineering company making world-class, award-winning hi-fi products that are supplied across the globe.

Since inception, their expertise in mechanical and electrical engineering was combined with three core values; to create products that perform beyond expectation, deliver unrivalled value for money, and offer lifelong reliability. These same values are upheld today and are key factors in Rega's continued growth and success.


The RB330 tonearm was designed using the latest 3D CAD and CAM technology and is the culmination of more than 35 years of tonearm design experience. Featuring a brand-new bearing housing, and their 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.


Walnut effect, laminated plinth. 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 Planar range.


24 V low noise low voltage precision motor and PCB assembly, fitted with a custom CNC machined aluminum pulley.

Central Bearing

Rega designed patented brass main hub central bearing, improved fit and construction reducing stress on the bearing itself.

Double Brace Technology

3 mm phenolic bottom brace and metalized skin phenolic top brace. The 50th anniversary Planar 3 uses a lightweight laminated plinth strengthened using our double brace system. Mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing) this 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.


The Neo MK2 PSU is an advanced turntable power supply providing user controllable fine speed adjustment, an advanced anti-vibration motor circuit and the convenience of electronic speed change. The Neo MK2 reduces motor noise, improves speed stability and rotational speed accuracy.
