The Planar 8 is inspired by the 'ultimate' Rega deck, the Naiad, and key to this is its exceptionally low mass skeletal plinth which is made from an aerospace derived foam cored material finished in a smartly subdued matt finish, with as much excess material cut away leaving a striking Skeletal plinth design.

A brace above and below the plinth additionally tie the tonearm and main bearing together with great rigidity.
It is available in two different colours and we can supply it with or without a cartridge (and there are even more cartridge options available, if you want one just ask!). We prefer to setup the turntable and fit the counterweight, so it's all ready to go when you collect it, but if you would prefer to do this yourself just let us know.

The Planar 8 is hand made in the UK (in Southend on Sea) and features the superb RB880 tonearm. A design using a cast arm tube which remove the normal joints found on most other tonearms making it very rigid - this reduces the chances of amplifying surface noise and gives great resolution.

The motor is a 24v design, with and is supplied with a pre calibrated Neo power supply which produces a clean and accurate waveform whilst also allowing electronic speed change between 33.3 and 45 rpm.

A triple layer glass platter adds a strong flywheel effect and is finished in a smoked finish on the matt black deck and clear on the matt finish version. This platter is rigidly coupled onto a beautifully turned aluminium sub platter .

A clear lift off dust cover is included on the matt white plinth and a smoked version on the matt black.
