The Rega Planar 8 is the second Rega turntable build by utilizing their ultra-lightweight Tancast 8 polyurethane foam core (a material produced for the aerospace business). The insertion of Tancast material between two layers of HPL (high strain overlay). HPL is astoundingly slender and incredibly rigid. Subsequently, this Rega Planar 8 is 30% lighter than the first RP8, which was itself a skeletal plan.
Furthermore, the Rega Planar 8 highlights the twofold support innovation between the tonearm and the bearing centre point that makes inflexibility. Also, eliminates undesirable energy absorption and undesirable resonances.
The Rega Planar 8 adopts an alternate strategy. Instead of being a gentle development of the past (yet rather great RP8) this new turntable takes its motivation from Rega’s Naiad.
Features of Rega Planar 8:
Hub Bearing Assembly: The Planar 8 purposes a new low mass central bearing get together. The assembling of the single-piece aluminium sub-platter. Since the old device’s steel spindle runs inside a custom metal housing whose mounting is inside the suspension. This new mounting gets rid of to destroy undesirable potential energy being put away on the plinth.
Neo PSU: The Neo PSU offers a smooth power supply, a high-level anti-vibration circuit and fine electronic speed change. Additionally, it utilizes the RP10 DSP (digital signal handling) generator based upon a high soundness gem. The DSP generator will separate the precise sign from the gem to the specific frequency expected to turn the platter at the selected speed.
EBLT Drive Belts: The new drive belt offers a curing system of modulus. The production of new belts is made on Rega planned, cutting edge, super-precise instruments which produce ‘completely round’ and ‘correspondingly exact’ belts, basic for wonderful speed safety. The drive belts on the new Planar 8 arrive in a couple.
24v Low noise motor assembly: The Planar 8 purposes Rega’s most recent age, 24v, synchronous, low vibration engine innovation. Particularly mounted utilizing the most significant level of coupling while at the same time holding higher vibration isolation than any past model. This new engine mounting strategy has taken straightforwardly from a definitive Rega turntable, the Naiad. This exceptional mounting strategy eliminates all weight on the engine body.
