Rega Planar 2


The Planar 2 features an unsprung chipboard plinth on rubber feet, originally bordered by a wooden trim.

Drive is via a compliantly mounted AC Synchronous motor with simple phase shift power supply, through an O-ring type belt.

The top platter is a heavy glass design with a felt mat, sitting on a plastic sub platter.

Early models were fitted with the Acos manufactured R200 tonearm, with later units benefiting from the British made RB250 tonearm, a simplified version of the classic RB300.


Drive method: belt drive

Motor: 110V AC synchronous

Platter: glass

Speeds: 33 and 45rpm


If you are very pitch sensitive then the Rega might pose problems, otherwise the overall sound quality is such that it gains a warm recommendation - HiFi Choice 1984

A remarkable product at the price, surprisingly articulate and confident - £185 HiFi Choice 1992
