RP8 Turntable

The RP8 is a ground breaking turntable which takes Rega’s design philosophy further than ever before. A radical new plinth design using custom materials, the RB808 tonearm , 24v low voltage motor controlled by a customised hand tuned electronic power supply, a triple layer float glass platter and a re-designed and improved version of our Planar 9 precision engineered hub bearing assembly. Available with the option of the RP8’s perfect partner the Rega Apheta moving coil cartridge factory fitted (recommended). These are just some of the features of this amazing turntable designed to extract more music from your vinyl than ever before. 

In 2013 the RP8 was voted “one of the best designs of all time” by two of the worlds most respected designers, Apple’s Sir Jony Ive and Marc Newson.

The Evolution of Revolution

Evolution is a well proven and documented process in many areas of our lives. This applies in particular to design engineers and machines. Over the past forty years our cars have become more reliable and economical whilst we take for granted the reliability and speed of modern aircraft. Rega is no exception to evolution. Rega’s experience and previous achievements allow us to continually develop and produce better products. The RP8 represents probably the biggest step forward in the evolution of Roy Gandy’s turntable design philosophies.

Low mass, high rigidity plinths combined with electronically controlled low vibration motors, high flywheel effect platters and lower mass higher stability tonearms. The RP8 is the first of our “skeletal” design turntables offering ground breaking levels of performance and amazing value for money.
