Catalogue Note

Donated by Rega Research Ltd.

Known for their exceptional sound fiedlity, Rega turntables are also a perfect embodiment of a design quality that Jony and Marc value: the form of the object simply and immediately describes its function. The Rega RP8's three-layer glass platter signalled a giant step forward in stereo design, and combined with other innovations - such as an electronically controlled low vibration motor - it produces superior sound. Mounted on a specifically designed shelf, it appears to float away from the wall.
