Ortofon Planar 3

On demonstration. 

Take the Rega Planar 3 and put your choice of Ortofon cartridge on it. 

Ortofon 2M Red

Ortofon 2M Blue

Ortofon 2M Bronze

Ortofon 2M Black

The bogey for price/performance is the Rega Neo and Ortofon 2M Blue followed by the Neo and 2M Bronze which brings more fine resolution courtesy of a smaller profile stylus. 

Included with the package is:

- Labor to install spacers and cartridge. 

- Rega 2mm Stainless Steel Spacers  (2)

Rega Tungsten 100g tonearm weight

Rega Neo PSU speed-control external power supply. (optional)

If you're an experimenter, this package is pretty good way to go should you wish to put different non-Rega cartridges on the Planar 3.  Once your tonearm is raised, you can put most standard height (18-19mm) cartridges on it.  Rega cartridges are 14mm in height. 

As part of this package, all bolts are properly torqued, cartridge pins re-sized and contact conditioner treated.  If we are shipping the turntable to you, we encourage you to purchase a tonearm tracking force gauge because we remove the tonearm weight for shipping.  

You need the Rega Tungsten tonearm weight so that the turntable lid will close. The raising of the Rega tonearm by 4mm causes the top of the stock tonearm weight to be too high for the lid to close.  The Tungsten tonearm weight will give you a small benefit in performance over the stock weight.
