Barkly Turntable

There are plenty of beautiful boutique turntables out there but what’s interesting about the $1298 Barkly Turntable is that it’s sold at chain store Anthropologie.

“A pitch-perfect piece of nature, this smooth slice of ashwood is outfitted with a Premotech motor and a Rega tonearm, a weighty glass platter and adjustable spike legs. Wood, glass. Handmade in USA” – anthropologie.com

    Unless I’m greatly mistaken, that’s a Rega Planar 3 in disguise, isn’t it? Nice idea though, still.

    • Could be… how can you tell? I like the Rega…

        I had one for a while. The parts look very similar, although laid out slightly differently.

        The glass platter is the same, the on / off switch and the sindle all look the same.

        Not that that’s a bad thing of course as the Rega is a lovely turntable but they haven’t held their value well and to add $1000 to their price just to substitute the wood is a little hefty. Still, a nice looking bit of kit, nonetheless :)
