There shouldn't be any sound on Rega turntables when the platter is moving. It should be dead quiet as with any well-designed TTs. The unit is probably defective. Rega does not seem to have any customer support in the UK, unfortunately, as they encourage folks to contact the local distributors or dealers for any questions or service enquiries. This was indicated in their webpage.
