What an amazing return the P2 is to the world of turn tables. Glass platter, excellent RM220 tone arm, laminated plinth this is really an awesome release by one of the worlds best.
Developed along side the new P3 which in itself is a legendary turn table reinvented, the P2 delivers so much for so little. The acrylic multi layered plinth sets a great foundation for the new self centering hub bearing. The precision bearing in turn supporting a new 'optiwhite' float glass platter that's 10mm thick.
The platter is driven via a precision machined aluminum pulley from Rega's latest 24V AC synchronous motor. The very low vibration and noise from this motor drops vibration input to the whole system.
The heart however is the new RB220 tonearm. An ultra low friction, zero play bearing system custom design and made by Rega. These bearings support a new aluminum arm tube which is a high precision low resonant structure suited to being used on much more expensive turn tables. This is something to keep in mind, REGA is one of very few tone arm manufacturers that is a standard option for almost every other turn table on the market. Choose a $6,000 German Acoustic Signature turn table for example, and REGA is an optioned arm. Gives some indication as to the quality and performance of REGA arms.
The P1 comes standard with a dust cover and fitted ready to play with the Rega Carbon cartridge.
Performance upgrades are possible due to the quality of the tone arm. Improve the sound by a big margin by putting an Ortofon 2M RED or 2M BLUE cartridge or the ultimate performance upgrade - Fit a Soundsmith Otello or even the Carmen cartridge to the P1 and you've got yourself a turn table that would sound better than many costing three times as much.
