About Rega Platter
A Rega turntable cannot function without the platter?the flat revolving piece a record spins on. When it comes time to replace your Rega platter due to wear or for an upgrade, shop on eBay. Options include glass, delrin, and acrylic. The different qualities of these materials means that they also produce varied sound quality; for instance, delrin and acrylic provide a truer sound than glass does because they are well-damped materials. Due to the resonance of glass, it can affect sound production. Thus, if you do want a new glass platter, be sure to pick up a felt mat to improve the sound quality. Delrin and acrylic do not require mats, but their mass is larger than glass platters. At least several different platter types work with each turntable model, so be sure to keep this in mind. Select a Rega platter to get the best sound out of your favorite records.
