Early Rega Planar 3 in for service

We really like getting these early Regas in. This one will be around 35 years old no is still fitted with a classic A&R P77 cartridge. (A&R evolved into Arcam, but unfortunately no longer make cartridges) A Rega Bias2 is an excellent replacement

This deck has been unused for a while, but there is unlikely to be any problems. Occasionally there can be speed issues, but this is an easy fix. The only common problem with early Regas is that the R200 tonearm wiring can start to break down...unfortunately Rega don't supply parts for these (as they didn't manufacture them) so problems here may require a new tonearm
