Rega Planar 3 Turntable Review @HiFi Buys w/ David White
In the case of the planer 3. It's a, i believe. It's a multi-density, fiberboard and, and the other turntables from here from above that one and up they use a foam, a racing foam that was developed in formula one racing cars

Rega Planar 3
It’s such a musical package. A real highlight was listening to Pink Floyd’s “Welcome to the Machine”, with the Planar 3 applying such tight control and great timing to the searing, immersive stereo effects that it felt almost as if a laser circular saw might come spinning into my head at any moment. Should I buy it?

Rega RP3 Turntable - HomeTheaterHifi.com
It’s a real blast from the past!. The RP 3 had the best bass I’ve heard on this record on any table under $2,500; full, clean, tight, tuneful and true to pitch. On the Rega and over the Legacy speakers, I found that all the instruments and singers were in their proper perspective size-wise and spatially as well

The haste is what makes this good potentially although 7 mana is still a lot for White/Red. Feels like a Planar Chaos card a bit but it's cool they are exploring new design space for White/Red.

Just moved in. Still need to treat the room.
I like this as an all-round setup for just about any source material. CXN for streaming, CXC for CDs, a Rega Planar 3 (upgraded to an Ortofon 2M Black cartidge) in into a Cambridge Duo phono pre for LPs. All into a CXA81 and out to the B+Ws. It feels pretty balanced and all the components play well to each others’ strengths.
Review: Rega Planar 3 - Son-Vidéo.com: blog
Rega Planar 3: conclusion The Rega Planar 3 is a resolutely audiophile turntable that reveals its full potential when combined with high-end electronics and a high-quality cartridge.

Rega Planar 3 turntable Michael Fremer
My conclusion from all of this playing around is, if you're on a limited budget, better to get a Rega 3 and an expensive cartridge than an expensive turntable with a cheap cartridge (footnote 1). I'm surprised by this, but that's what I found.

I raise your Friday night with my Sunday morning :)
It sounded okay on the last setup, but listening to it through the new system, especially when being compared to what streaming sounds like through it, is a bit of a non event. Probably going to pick up a Rega Planar 3 or Pro-Ject Evo Pro, although I have absolutely gone through all my audio budget for the next little while at least 🙂.
