Revisiting the Rega Planar 2

Posted by The Sound Organisation on May 3rd 2024

The Rega Planar 2 has taken the concept of a minimalist, but high quality turn table and unleashed it across the world of hi-fi. This easy to use turntable has become a favorite for those wanting to dabble in high end audio solutions. Let’s revisit the Planar 2 in 2024.

In recent years, vinyl has resurged and become such a mainstream format for audio consumption. This has driven the desire for turntable in markets that reach the more average music consumers. Enter the Planar 2 and out of the box it’s ready to do its job well without the fluff. It’s the second most affordable turntable that Rega offers and it’s a stellar choice for those wanting to get into the market of hi-fi audio.

What does it look like? The Rega Planar 2 is a belt driven, unsuspended turntable just like all of the other Rega turntables. It sports a glass platter that looks great and feels high end. Its simplicity adds to the overall beauty. It was engineered to be light, but still sturdy.

How does it sound? It can best be described as sounding fun. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, nor does it promise to be the best sounding turntable ever. This is what makes it so great. It seems to underpromise and overdeliver. It has an ability to really encapsulate the energy of a record and make it sound as exciting as it is.

If you’re in the market for a simple, yet effective turnable- look no further. Rega is undoubtedly one of the best in the game and it’s near impossible to go wrong with any of their turntables.
