    Re: Suncoast Audio adds Rega Turntables & Electronics

    I have been intrigued with Rega’s latest low mass offerings with the P8 and P10.
    Sounds like they are bringing excellent performance for a reasonable cost. Definitely great options if you want to enjoy vinyl and not have to fuss with set-up or arm choices etc.

    And they supply tables quickly (like 3 days).

    Wonderful news! Rega is great brand. Congratulations, Mike!

    I have the amazing Rega Planar 10 in presently for review at TAS.





    I think setup took all of 10 minutes.

    It is, in a word, a FANTASTIC performer.

    Congrats Mike! Excellent quality and performance that won’t break the bank.

    Years ago, 1980s - 1990s, I had a Linn LP12 with a Rega RB300 arm. It was a terrific combo.

    Re: Suncoast Audio adds Rega Turntables & Electronics

    It's about time you added a good turntable line, LOL. Just kidding.

    I had a Rega P3 for many years, once it was set up I never had to do anything else until I moved to a Dynavector cart.

    Our Rega distributor is also named Mike, if he also covers your area he is a great guy and a turntable guru.

    Re: Suncoast Audio adds Rega Turntables & Electronics

    I was a dealer for REGA back when the line was the Planar 2 & 3.

    Simple set-up; perfectly reliable; good sound; and affordable. Never had ONE client who didn't like their Rega.

    In fact, when they eventually moved up to a Linn or Goldmund, they usually kept their Rega.

    After all, it was the turntable that originally made their music come alive.

    Re: Suncoast Audio adds Rega Turntables & Electronics

    I own planar 3 since early 90s, it’s awesome turntable. It’s connected to an old Naim and Rega Ella
    Super little system, engaging, fast and maintenance free it installed in a small dining room next to Rega cookbook.

    I think Rega is a fabulous company, good luck

    Cheeseburger good .... The Hexmat Yellow Bird is pretty awesome. It is called a record isolation system which works very well, especially with Rega. Instead of mass and weight like many companies do they go for no mass and isolation of the album.

    Re: Suncoast Audio adds Rega Turntables & Electronics

    So...I'm listening to the Rega Planar 10 tonight...various stuff. A mix of classical, rock, and jazz.

    I gotta say, this turntable is FABULOUS. I frickin' love it. Its is exceptionally quiet, and superbly neutral. There is NO coloration with this TT and the Apheta 3. None. And gobs and gobs of detail with an solid, and weighty bottom-end. Soundstage width, breadth and height is excellent and image stability is outstanding.

    Life is rough.

    Tomorrow, the plan is to do an interview with...Roy Gandy. And, we're gonna talk...transfer functions.

    Have fun interviewing Roy.

    I just sat down listening to my RP8 with the Ania Pro. Eva Cassidy Songbird album arrived today. Really like my Rega!
