For the Love of 78 RPM Records

Designed solely for the reproduction of 78 rpm records, we have omitted any unnecessary gimmicks allowing us to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce records accurately. The minimalist design of the Rega Planar 78 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that your turntable should last for many years.

The RB220 offers astonishing performance and is one of Rega’s best selling tonearms. An evolution of the famous RB250, which was supplied as standard on early Planar 2 and P2 turntable, the RB220 uses our patented ultra lightweight high quality polymer bearing selected, high quality vertical and horizontal bearings. The tonearm uses our unique die-cast tube and a three point plinth mounting technique to reduce stress on the plinth and offers greater stability through the precision hand made tonearm. All of which translates into more music for you the listener.
