Rega Planar 8 With Apheta 2
This product is currently sold out.
The Rega Planar 8 is something of a departure. Normally, Rega believes in evolution rather than revolution. Anyone who’s followed the company’s history will recognise the pattern of a product being launched and then carefully honed over the following years.
It’s a path that’s been followed successfully by the likes of the Planar 1, 2, 3 and 6, as well as the industry standard RB300 tonearm and its derivatives. Many of these products have been around for decades and still remain on top of their respective classes. This suggests that such a measured approach works.
Rega Planar 8 takes a different approach. Rather than being a gentle evolution of the previous (and still rather good RP8) this new turntable takes its inspiration from Rega’s Naiad.
