Specifically created for Record Store Day’s 10th birthday, Rega has built a turntable that’s a hybrid of a Planar 1 and RP3 that will be solely available from independent record shops and Rega stockists on the 22nd April for £250. The RSD17 turntable uses the plinth and running gear from the RP3 (which preceded the P3 launched last year and retailed for nearly twice the asking price here) combined with the tonearm and plug and play ability of the new Planar 1. You will also find a high specification 12mm float glass platter, 18mm brass precision bearing and custom RSD mat. This is the highest performance RSD deck that Rega have ever produced as befits the 10th anniversary.
To commemorate the event “almost 40” of the 500 decks are signed by some of Rega’s favourite artists. These will be allocated to shops across the UK at random and customers can find out on purchase if they’ve become the owner of one of the very limited signed decks.
Turntables signatories include:
Public Service Broadcasting
The Pretty Things
Each artist has signed between 2 and 5 turntables. For your chance to win one of these exclusive turntables follow Rega on twitter @RegaResearch and enter the free competition.
