rega planet 200 & mira 3
The back of the Mira 3 is on the contrary rather crowded: from left we find the sources connectors including a record player one, with its grounding post right above the input row. Included are two analog recording outputs, two connector pairs for an external preamplifier and an output for an external power amplifier or an amplified subwoofer. Further right we find the speakers connectors, then the mains cord socket.
Buttons and connectors are the same quality of competitors, and a good feature is the opportunity to use the Mira 3 with external preamplifiers or power amps. These opportunities make of it an excellent device for bi-amping and multi-channel tasks, so versatility is out of question. The front panel of the Mira3 looks even more plain than the one of the Planet 2000, with the usual print work on left and an on / off switch that lights red when on. The central knob works both as input selector and volume control thanks to a switch that swaps functions upon touch - push it a second time and it's a one- decibel steps precise volume control once again. On the left of this knob we have a led- enlightened source list, on the right the two "mute" and "tape monitor" buttons.
