Rega P5 turntable with RB700 tonearm Black Frame
The Rega P5 is a turntable born from the legacy of the P55. The P5 turntable celebrates over 30 years of Rega precision crafting specialist hi-fi in Britain. And subsequently combines everything that Rega stands for, which is simply, giving you the best product in terms of quality and style at the best possible price!
The Rega P5 turntable utilizes ideas and engineering techniques used on their more expensive turntables: the aluminium surround, its complex CNC machined skeletal low mass micro-fibre plinth and the new RB700 tonearm found on the Rega P7 turntable.
The glass platter of the Rega P5 turntable is hand crafted from floated plate glass 15mm in thickness. This makes for a superb platter material which provides stability and assists in the isolation of record information against other sounds (i.e. /knocking or vibrations) and also provides excellent speed stability; thus providing increased sonic enjoyment.
A review by HiFi Choice describes the eloquence of the Rega P5:
"Its ability to define the leading edge of each note is what keeps you listening and appreciating the subtleties of the music."
