REGA PLANAR1 Review

 

REGA have been very busy recently, hot on the heels of the new Planar3 comes a new Planar2

Featuring the famous glass platter and an uprated RB250 tonearm the Planar2 bridges the gap perfectly between RP1 and the Planar3

Competitively priced at £ 375 with a factory fitted Rega Carbon cartridge the Planar2 is set to attract many new clients to Rega

If you want to make it even better you can add a Performance pack for an additional £ 99

This is also great value as it provides a better cartridge, belt and mat which would cost £ 115 if purchased separately

The Planar2, in black or white and complete with lid, is available now

Rega planar 2 white

 

The new Arcam Solo models are really really good, see Blogs, now with a trade-in offer opened up to everyone, not just exclusive to Arcam owners, see Arcam News

The iconic ‘ Planar Three’ returns - Now Available 

Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task.

It took Rega's team of designers headed up by Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'three' model ever seen.

The Rega team have improved every aspect of this turntable offering improved ergonomics, usability and first and foremost, sonic performance.

The new ‘Planar 3’ is truly a new turntable for 2016 carrying over just two components from the previous model.

 While Rega turntables, cd players and amplifiers have been sweeping all before them the speaker range has been described as 'quirky'.

All are now on demonstration, drop us a line to arrange an appointment for a listen.

Turntables are back with a bang. Our Rega orders are back to pre-cd 1980s levels, and some even have waiting lists. Dig out the old vinyl and bring a smile back, from just £248 for the Planar1.

For something even better the RP6 looks and sounds great for £1099 including the brilliant Exact cartridge, and the new RP8 is a leap above that again if you stretch to £ 2298 including the £1020 Apheta2 moving coil cartridge. A new RP8 bundle is now available using the £ 255 Rega Exact moving magnet cartridge at £ 1798, bargain! RP8 is also available without cartridge, we will fit yours free, at £ 1598

Lyric Hifi is pleased to announce a new service for our clients: CD Ripping

With the advent of Digital Streaming systems music selection is now so simple, with brilliant performance, yet the boring task of transferring your precious cd collection to hard disk at full quality does could put you off the whole idea. Don't let it! 

HELP is at hand, for a very small pecuniary remuneration!

We have invested in an automated ripping system to take away all the effort and leave you with just the pleasure, the listening to uncompressed music. Now you no longer have to trust your unique collection to a carrier and send it to England and back, along with the expense. Here is how it works:

Collect as many 100 disc spindles as you need from us and simply set your cds on to them. Drop these with us along with your hard drive and pick it up in a few days, depending how many you have and how busy we are.

We will rip to your preferred format, usually FLAC Lossless Uncompressed, and also give you a report on the accuracy achieved.

Costs vary according to quantity of cds

Up to 100 99p each, 101-200 95p, 201-400 85p

 401 and more 79p

If you would like to supply your collection in jewel cases then add 20p per disc for the handling

Your collection is then ready to connect to your Linn DS, Naim Uniti/ND, Cyrus Stream, Sonos, Denon, Marantz, in fact any of Lyric Hifi's music streaming solutions, instantly controlled by ipad/ipod/laptop. Easy peasy! 

-----------------

At Lyric we have the broadest range of stock you will find anywhere in Ireland.

With 30 years experience as a specialist and performance orientated retailer we know a great product from an ordinary one: and our Product Policy means we do not stock just ordinary ones.

We look, listen, test, and then recommend a selected range of the best performing products across a wide price range, so you can find the very best system you can afford!

Over the years we have won national awards for our commitment to performance quality products and we are very proud of this, giving our clients confidence that we know what we are talking about and that our support and advice is a valuable part of your hifi system, cinema system, or new home project.
