Britain's Rega is one of the best-known nameplates in audio. For over 40 years, Rega products have been treasured by music lovers all over the world. 

Rega has always taken a deliberate approach to releasing new models, famously waiting almost 10 years after the introduction of the Compact Disc to release their first CD player. If Rega couldn’t do it right, they weren’t going to do it all. These days Rega makes a wide variety of products from phono cartridges to speakers, integrated amps to DACs. All are relative bargains at their prices. 

But with our focus here on analog, we must mention their newest turntable, the Planar 10. Aas Michael Fremer put it succinctly in the March 2020 Stereophile:

“Rega's new P10 is by far the company's most sophisticated, refined, quiet, and subtle-sounding turntable yet. It combines the immediacy, grip, and rhythm'n'pacing excitement Regas have always produced, with the subtlety and delicacy typically found on far more costly analog front ends. The same is true of the Apheta 3 cartridge. If there's a better $6695 plug'n'play turntable out there—or, for that matter, a better or at least competitive one for $10,000—I don't know what it is. ”

—Michael Fremer, Stereophile, Vol.43 No.3

And btw the $6695 he refers to is the Planar 10 together with the new RB3000 tonearm when bundled together with Rega's Alpheta 3 factory fitted phono cartridge, hence the "plug'n'play comment. It is $5695 for arm and table with no cartridge.
