Rega PL10

Thursday, 17 October 2019 10:49:00 am Australia/Melbourne

This is probably the first PL10 on display in a store in Australia. It is gorgeous. Less is more for Rega, less noise, less vibration, less play in the bearings, less mass to store harmful resonance energy, and less ownership dissatisfaction ...
