New Rega P10 ...

Post by Pikey » 11 Sep 2019 21:04

It seems the new Rega P10 is out and about ...
The Apheta 3 moving coil cartridge was developed alongside the turntable using Rega’s most advanced “Fine Line” diamond profile, and is sold separately for £1250 or packaged at a discount with the P10 for £4499 (without it, the deck is £3599).

The lid/cover looks like on my Thorens TD203, but more curvy. :) Same idea, you put it on the spindle and then it covers the platter and the tonearm. It's interesting that Rega tries something different, they have been quite, shall we say, traditional in the past. Now the platter hangs over the plinth. :) But, as usual, the big question is the sound.

It will be another home run from Rega I’m sure.

Oh yes.
I like the new PSU. Much beefier than mine with my Planar 8.

I would love to trade my Rp10 in for the new P10 but being a little OCD, would mean changing out my entire system to the Rega Aura and Rega Aethos so everything matches- and I know the boss would not be happy since I just convinced her that my system was finished after purchasing the Saturn-r in February :D
I’ll keep playing the lottery!

Nice! I wonder if that platter is compatible with the P8?

I don't like (the look of) it.

Just as I didn't like (the look of) the Planar 8.


Means the square root of b****r all at the end of the day, of course...

Looks like a higher end P8. A lot of the same design ideas with even better parts. I have a P2, which I like a lot, but give me one of either the 8 or10 and I’d be very happy!!
