The simplicity,looks & pricing of the TT was the main reason to get a REGA. Sold my P2 after two years for a mint condition Planar 3.
The Planar 3 has evolved
with Mike Lim's aluminum sub-platter, acrylic platter, silicone belting, aluminum spikes ( not from Mike Lim ) and the most significant upgrade
is to the new P3-24V power supply. The speed is steady as she goes compared to the original power supply...which was running a tad bit fast. Measured via a strobe disc.
The music thats churned out of the souped up TT is controlled, has much more clarity and weight.
