Introduction to the Rega RP3 Turntable

Rega, the respected British hi-fi company, was officially founded in 1973 with a broad mission statement that is very elegantly stated on their website. The Rega mission is “to manufacture high quality, specialist hi-fi components that are reliable, consistent and sensibly priced”. Ever since their founding, Rega has maintained an excellent reputation for meeting these objectives.

Similar to several other hi-fi manufacturers, Rega seems to never sit still. They are always working on the next new product offering. They continuously roll out new models. For example, Rega has recently updated four of their turntable models. The new turntables get an “RP” designation at the front of their model numbers which is presumably short for “Rega Planar”.
