Brand new Rega Planar 6 turntables are here!

The brand new and hotly anticipated Rega Planar 6 have arrived! Rega has slowly been working on revising their turntable lineup, first with the Planar 3 last year, then the Planar 2 and 1. The new Planar 6 is truly an all new product, not sharing any original components from the outgoing RP6 (except the hinges. why mess with what works?). There is so much that has gone into this new table, that we can’t fit all of the new information into a blog post. You can read more about it here. We’re in the process of putting this new table through the paces. A glowing 5 star review from What HiFi? here.

We have the brand new Oppo UDP-205 Audiophile Universal Ultra HD BluRay Player just in! This is the audiophile upgraded version of the well reviewed UDP-203 player. We haven’t even had a chance to audition it ourselves. The UDP-205 is a step-up version of the recently released UDP-203, the UDP-205 brings top-of-the-line audio performance to a universal player that supports 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and many other digital audio and video formats. The audio performance of the OPPO UDP-205 is a significant upgrade over the UDP-203 and previous generation players. The UDP-205 provides reference level sound quality through the analog outputs, improves the clock precision of the HDMI audio output, and increases the power of the built-in headphone amplifier. For the analog output stages, the UDP-205 utilizes two ES9038PRO DACs, which are the flagship of the ESS Sabre Pro series, delivering best-in-class audio performance. (Note: Video streaming services are no longer available on the 203 or 205, just add a Roku 4K or other device and you can connect it to the new Oppo via HDMI to add those features)
