Featuring the brand new reference Rega RB2000 tonearm, a ceramic flywheel platter and the custom RP10 power supply, the Rega RP10 guarantees the highest level of performance from a Rega turntable to date.
"Frankly, the RP10 is not only the best Rega I've tested but one of the best bar none, irrespective of price". Paul Miller Hi-Fi News August 2015 Outstanding Product Award.
The RP10 represents the biggest step forward in the evolution of Rega’s turntable design philosophy. This extends further than ever before with advanced components built around a radical new plinth design.
RP10 Custom power supply
Housed in Rega's half width custom designed case is the speed control circuit dedicated to running the 24v low noise motor. The speed and control of the motor is achieved by using a new DSP (Digital Signal Processing) generator built upon a high stability crystal to generate a near perfect sinusoidal waveform to power the motor. Each motor is individually hand tuned to its own RP10 custom power supply in the factory to minimise vibration, motor noise and ensure optimum performance. The motor drives the bearing assembly via the twin belt drive.
The RB2000 tonearm is packed with new features pushing the boundaries of tonearm design. As with all Rega tonearms, each one is meticulously hand built and polished by a team of highly skilled technicians. The RB2000 uses improved bearings with each one being hand selected to be an interference fit with the paired spindle.
A brand new low mass, precision engineered, vertical bearing assembly has been manufactured to further compliment the inherent design philosophy of the RP10 turntable. The advanced arm tube design increases the stiffness and rigidity of the overall assembly, whilst reducing stress on the bearings even further.
Skeletal plinth design with polyolefin foam core
The all new RP10 turntable utilises a unique new stressed skin structure produced from thin phenolic skins, sandwiching a featherweight nitrogen expanded, closed cell, polyolefin foam core. This material has been developed exclusively for Rega over a three year period. Rega has added even more stiffness in the crucial area between the arm and the main bearing with a double brace mounted specifically where the increased rigidity is required (between the tonearm mounting and the main hub bearing). This forms a structurally sound “stressed beam” assembly by using two different materials. The top layer is magnesium and the bottom layer is phenolic (two of the lightest and stiffest materials available).
De-coupled outer frame and dust cover
A common problem for many skeletal design turntables is the inability to incorporate an effective dust cover into the design. Rega have constructed an outer frame that minimises contact between the inner and outer plinth. The only points of contact are three location devices on the feet which centralise the inner and outer plinths perfectly. This makes set-up extremely easy and allows the use of a dust cover. The RP10 can be used without the outer frame if so desired.
Super flywheel effect ceramic platter
The RP10 uses a custom ceramic flywheel effect platter. The platter is produced from ceramic oxide powder which is compressed, fired and diamond cut to ensure perfect accuracy and flatness across the surface.
