The bigger brother of RP3, the RP6 may look similar on the surface, yet underneath the colourful counter are many tweaks that make it worth the jump in price. A 16mm glass flywheel, manufactured using a UV curing bond technique, helps improve speed, stability, consistency along with accuracy of sound. Another interesting addition is the 24v low noise motor, which features an anti-vibration circuit hand and is controlled by Rega’s TTPSU power supply. Plus, if you want to get all patriotic, there’s a Union Jack emblazoned version available too.
