Rega Planar 2 Turntable Demo

what’s going on welcome to germinates
I’m Christian and today we’re gonna be
going over the Riga Pete Paul shoes okay
hopefully you can hear me a little
better there obviously my partner is not
here for some obvious things going on
right now but that isn’t gonna stop us
from bringing some good content so today
we’re here to talk about one of my
favorite turntables that we carry here
in the shop
the Riga planer 2 or p2 for short now a
frequent question I get asked is you
know what are some differences or you
know who’s this turntable for should I
get one should even worth looking into
and that’s what we’re here to talk about
today so get anything started there are
some similarities and there’s definitely
some differences when it comes from
let’s say the p1 or the p1 plus to the
p2 first thing off the bat
that’s kind of more noticeable is that
you’re gonna get Regas iconic glass
platter so 10 millimeter and thickness
as you can see here little dusty but
there you go as you can see this is and
this is kind of what Regan is iconic for
a little more known for surf they’re
glass platters beautiful really stylish
and you get that when you upgrade from
the p1 or the p1 plus another huge
difference right off the bat that’s very
noticeable is you’re gonna get the RB
220 tonearm okay this is gonna be
handmade and it’s a much different from
the tonearm found on the p1 and the p1
plus you know and so right off the bat
those are the key differences you know
live for someone that’s kind of on the
fence of like I may be a p1 or a p1 plus
there but between the p2 so right off
the bat right out of the box you’re
gonna get the performance boost ok now
another thing that I wanted to talk
about is what comes after you get a p2
so for a lot of people they think you
know oh I’m scared of getting this
turntable because what if I want
something bigger or badder later or you
know am I just stuck with first of all
right at the box this turntable sounds
nominal and most people are gonna just
love it for years and years and years it
comes fitted with a Rica carbon but what
I always tell people is is you know if
you feel like you’re ready for something
else you can always upgrade so like for
example here we’ve got the Elise – and
you could just pop that bad boy right on
this and get instant instant performance
upgrade you know and another thing that
we get quite frequently here in the shop
is the white bill of three so right here
kind of go over to show you there and so
you know with that if you kind of can
add all those up because for me you know
isn’t a destination it’s a journey and
so you know when it comes to these
turntables you know when we go from if
you start adding all these upgrades and
differences up they they become quite
profound so you know for it we’ll use
like a p1 for example which by the way
is also great sounding turntable but
these are just inching that closer to as
perfection as you can get right so wrap
the bat we got glass platter ten
millimeters the RB – 20 tonne arm right
now we add like an Elise – and then we
add upgrade we got for considerable
upgrades and this turntable is going to
sound profoundly better than a p1 then
you know not only that you can also
upgrade your slip mat to get a you know
the thicker mat and all of these small
details make a profound difference okay
and this is actually our demo p2 we’ve
had it for we’ve had it for a while and
we’ve just left it stock and it’s
amazing it’s amazing we look we don’t we
don’t have the the white belt upgrade on
it we have the carbon on it and we play
this turntable for people and they love
it and it’s just as Riga advertises its
its performance right out of the box
which is really important to us and it
should be for you too you know I don’t
know about you but when I when I
purchase something new especially I want
it to work right out of the box and
sound great and I can definitely say
that that’s what you’re gonna get with
the
and you know another thing is you’re
gonna get that iconic glass platter look
now another thing that you may not know
is that with the p2 you can actually get
it in red so with the p1 you can get
that in white and black but when you get
to the p2 level you can actually get
that in red as well so just another
little difference and you know these
aren’t small guys you know like these
upgrades you know Riga is very
intentional with their design this turn
this tone arm you know is it’s just
significantly different than what comes
on the p1 you know if you uh you could
check into our p1 video if you kind of
want to see why but this is handmade the
glass platter tonearm and like I said
kind of what we went over again
cartridge belt basically what I’m saying
is you can have a lot of fun with this
turntable and I think it’s for somebody
who you know maybe has been into hi-fi
for a little while and it’s just once
again trying to take that next step on
that journey you know cuz it’s about the
journey guys you’re gonna find out real
quick that if you ever think that you’re
gonna just put together this perfect
system I don’t know for you–for
foremost audio files or music lovers you
know it’s it’s a it’s almost impossible
to get there so but anyway guys if you
enjoyed this video please like comment
subscribe let us know what you want to
see I really miss my my buddy Joey he’s
gonna be working on some videos too and
stay tuned for more

Rega Planar 2 Turntable Review

The Rega Planar 2 turntable is a great way to expand your vinyl record collection or personal DJ setup. A new low noise, high fidelity audio turntable, new low profile acrylic plinth, new two-speed belt drive and many more features. Every component of this revolutionary new turntable is engineered to extract the most amount of detail and information from your favorite vinyl collection. If you enjoy spinning records, rapping out tunes or digging deep into your library for rare gems, the Rega Planar 2 is an awesome way to do it. The Planar 2 Turntable has all of the features to allow you to do it every time.

With the included CD player and phono pre-amp, the Rega Planar 2 makes it simple to enjoy hours upon hours of smooth tonal music. When you are done with the record, simply remove the CD from the unit and load it up in the included CD changer. Turn the volume up to full blast and enjoy your favorite tracks without having to worry about scratching your records or damaging the delicate inner parts of your tonearm. The tonal precision control of the Rega Planar 2 allows you to rip any kind of music you like and have it play exactly how you want it on the album. Unlike other record players, the tonal accuracy of the Rega Pro 2 is extremely tight and delivers high quality sound throughout the entire range of the music spectrum. The included phono pre-amp further enhances the sound quality of the phonographic record player.

The vinyl records produced by the Rega Company can be extremely costly. This is especially true for the more expensive models such as the Rega Planar 2. You can avoid spending a huge amount of money on unnecessary accessories and save some cash by purchasing a less expensive turntable. If you own an upright that needs some serious tuning up or needs a simple cleaning, consider the Rega Planar 2. This is the perfect solution for your needs as it offers the same quality of playability as an expensive turntable but it is very cost-effective. The included cleaning tool makes it easy for you to maintain your phonographic records.

In order to get the most out of your vinyl album, you need to do a bit of pre-tuning and this is where the Rega Planar 2 scores over its competitors. The included phono pre-amp allows you to do this easily. The automatic bias setting makes it very easy to change the pitch of the recorded record without having to manually do so every time. The result is an impressive quality of sound and an enhanced sense of performance as you will never be left with an unbalanced sound.

The Rega Planar 2 also comes with an audio interface with an S-lda mode and an RCA input. An optical output port is also included for connecting the turntables directly to other audio components. With this equipment, you can enjoy a complete planar performance pack featuring two great sounding cartridges.

Rega Planar 2 is built to last with a tonal construction that is superior to other Rega products. The aluminum oxide tonearm provides a smooth and comfortable tonal experience. You get a rich assortment of sounds from the deep bass notes to the smoother tones from the treble end of the range. This tonal variation is available in a wide range of colors, giving you the ability to customize the tonal presentation to your personal taste. The Rega Planar 2 also includes popular Carbon Copy lock technology that allows you to avoid running into problems with scratching when using your system. This cartridge upgrade makes a great addition to any turntable collection.
