Rega Planar 1 Turntable
The Rega Planar 1 Turntable is a great choice for those wanting a good entry level piece that gets all the core competencies correct. Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance.
For the first time the Planar 1 is now running a 24v, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration transfer combined with our brand new RB110 tonearm fitted with Rega’s bespoke zero play bearings. Only sharing the drive belt, sub platter and dust cover from the outgoing RP1, this is truly a new turntable for a new era.
Engineered For Sound
The Planar 1 has a brand new Rega RB110 tonearm which is made in-house and built with the new Rega designed, bespoke, zero play bearings with ultra-low friction performance (Patent Pending). New bias assembly and integrated arm clip.
Includes automatic bias adjustment negating the need for the user to set bias, making this the most ‘Plug & Play’ turntable Rega have ever manufactured. New ergonomically, re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance.
A Rega Carbon cartridge is supplied and fitted as standard so you don’t need to worry about mucking around with tiny wires and scews. Even the balance weight is ‘Plug & Play’ making the time between unpacking and playing even simple. The Carbon is above average performance and significantly ahead of the competition at this price.
There is also a brand new Thermoset, matt laminated plinth with vastly improved appearance and new ergonomically positioned on/off switch located on the underside as well as new improved feet to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.. Two stunning plinth finishes available, matt black and matt white.
This is the first entry level Rega turntable to use a 24v, synchronous AC motor with a new motor PCB and aluminium pulley that offer low noise and better speed stability.
The re-designed brass main bearing delivers improved fit and removes stress on the bearing itself whilst minimising the transfer of potential energy. (Patent pending). The new, 23mm, higher mass, phenolic platter with improved flywheel effect for improved speed stability is ultimately supported on this bearing.
