Rega Planar 2 Turntable With Carbon Cartridge Fitted – Gloss : planar 2 + 100% customer service

Brilliant turntable, although it’s entry level, it has rega’s brilliant build quality.

It can sound great, but mine has inconsistency issues and is now. It can sound great, but mine has inconsistency issues and is now being looked at under warranty. Mine was almost impossible to set tracking weight without a good set of scales on due to too much antiskate (its not adjustable on the rb220 arm) making the arm virtually impossible to balance before adding counterweight. In addition the raise/lower action is sticky and hesitant and arm tends to move out to the right – probably also an indication of too much bias. The dealer i bought it from (audio t, cardiff) has been very helpful and discovered that i had the tracking weight way too high at 2. They’ve sent it back to rega for a checkover so i await developments. I want to give it 5 stars as it looks great and can sound great with the right record but i have lost some confidence in it.

Rega Planar 2 Turntable With Rega Carbon Cartridge Fitted – Gloss Black : Nice turntable, looks the part, sounds great. I purchased the rega pre-amp too because my main amp does not have suitable phono inputs. My only criticism is the acrylic lid, fits perfectly, looks good but if you have a record in one hand and attempt to open the lid with the other the push-in hinges pop-out on the side you lift. They need to me sort of grub screw or sping-clip to lock them in place more securely.

Easy to set up, and a significant improvement in sound over my old project, even though fitted with rega’s ‘basic’ carbon cartridge.

Rega planar 2 + 100% customer service. Over the moon is an under statement, bought through amazon sold by sound craft hifi in ashford kent, well these guys have customer service down to a fine art, a special mention to paul rawlings who sorted everything out for me, i decided after buying the rega planer 2 to install the upgrade kit, however a signal wire came off while trying to install the upgraded cartridge (my fat fingers) got onto soundcraft hifi paul arranged collection of the turntable so rega could inspect and repair, as gesture of good will the paid for half the carriage costs and to top it off rega repaired under warranty, i was that impressed i bought the rega phono mm (paul sorted me a good deal) so now i am in vinyl heaven, buy the turntable, buy the rega phono mm if you need one, they compliment each other, if you intend to upgrade buy the turntable upgraded. . The guys at soundcraft hifi would sort it, just will definitely be purchasing any future hifi requirements from these guys. Wish i could give ten stars.
