To celebrate our 40th anniversary Rega will be offering a limited edition turntable based on the multi award winning RP3
RP40 Anniversary Edition!
Limited quantity supplied on a first come first served basis
Exclusively available during 2013 only
The RP40 will be 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 our development work on our 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 whilst reducing flutter. A custom TT-PSU will be included which will be hand tuned to each individual motor before fitting to the deck. (a level of fine tuning only found on the RP8 and previously the Planar 9 turntable). This will maximise the efficiency of the anti-vibration circuit whilst still offering the convenience of electronic speed change.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in
true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an
analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is
then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end
(or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any
digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before
they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is
altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity
means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the
original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was
intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for
the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
