To celebrate their 40th anniversary, Rega has just introduced a limited-edition turntable based on their award-winning RP3. The RP40 Anniversary Edition is available in a limited quantity supplied on a first come first served basis and is exclusively available during 2013 only. The RP40 is supplied with a special edition white Elys40 cartridge, carefully tested to the highest achievable specification offering improved stereo imaging, balance and detail.
A new Silicon drive belt exclusive to RP40 derived from development work on their ultimate turntable the Naiad (expected later this year). These belts are manufactured on a new tool to guarantee a stable diameter over the full circumference of the belt offering improved speed stability while reducing flutter. A custom TT-PSU hand tuned to each individual motor before fitting to the deck is included (a level of fine tuning only found on the RP8 and previously the Planar 9 turntable). This will maximize the efficiency of the anti-vibration circuit while still offering the convenience of electronic speed change.
