REGA RP8/APHETA

Stuff Singapore - - DESIGN -

While we wait for the ar­rival of a metal band called Skele­tal Plinth, we’re happy for the phrase to be the call­ing card of this fine, an­gu­lar turntable. The plus side of the plinth’s min­i­mal­ist de­sign is that it picks up fewer un­wanted air­borne vi­bra­tions. The down­sides are the in­abil­ity to at­tach a dust cover and the fact that the ma­te­rial (closed-cell poly­olefin foam, ob­vi­ously) isn’t that smooth and looks a bit un­fin­ished. So Rega sup­plies a sur­round to sit around the plinth. In ef­fect, it’s a su­perb-sound­ing record player wear­ing se­cret sexy un­der­wear. £2200 ($4545) / rega.co.uk
