The Planar 8 was inspired by the ultimate Rega turntable, the Naiad. Built around an ultra-lightweight skeletal Tancast 8 foam core plinth with HPL laminates, this new high-rigidity plinth creates the perfect platform for the precision RB880 tonearm, lightweight bearing assembly, and triple layer float glass platter. Supplied with a custom matched Neo Power Supply.


The Planar 8 was inspired by the ultimate Rega turntable, the 'Naiad'. We decided early on that instead of an evolution of the previous RP8, the new Planar 8 was to be developed and engineered to encapsulate the essence of 'Naiad' at an affordable price. Our aim was to deliver a level of performance far beyond what has been achieved at this price point before. Every aspect of the Planar 8 is engineered to extract as much detail from the vinyl surface as possible. We have used the most advanced materials and engineering solutions built around a supremely lightweight plinth to ensure the greatest level of performance.The Planar 8 is supplied with the new RB880 tonearm and Neo PSU as standard which offers electronic speed change, advanced anti-vibration control and user adjustable electronic fine speed adjustment to ensure total accuracy and control over the motor. The outer frame of the previous model has now been removed and a new stylish, removable, single piece dustcover has been introduced further reducing the overall mass of the turntable. The Planar 8 will be available with the recommended Ania or Apheta 2* MC cartridges factory fitted at an attractive package price. Please Note: The new smaller footprint of the Planar 8 will not fit on the current Rega turntable wall bracket. We have developed a new lightweight custom Planar 8 wall bracket for this model. *All images shown include the Apheta 2 MC, sold separately or factory fitted if required.
