Rega asked themselves, how do they make the most successful turntable they have ever made sound better, be even easier to use and be more accessible to a wider audience? The answer was simple; Rega’s engineers added a custom designed, high quality, moving magnet phono stage based around the multi-award winning What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Fono Mini.
For 2021 Rega have a fresh new look for the Rega Planar 1 PLUS. Rega are delighted to introduce a stunning new matte finish. Every single aspect of the Planar 1 PLUS has been meticulously designed to improve performance. The Rega Planar 1 PLUS uses a bespoke 24 V, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration combined with Rega’s hand made RB110 tonearm fitted with their unique Rega designed ultra-low friction bearings. Rega have added their latest drive belt technology the EBLT belt which delivers greater accuracy and improved speed performance. If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.
The built-in phono stage is a high specification pre-amplifier. It is designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a suitable level for all line level inputs of an appropriate system or audio amplifier. This allows simple connection to a wide variety of products using either the standard twin phono to phono lead (supplied) or phono to 3.5 mm plug (not supplied).
Rega’s RB110 tonearm is built with Rega designed, bespoke, ultra low friction bearings (Patent Pending). Pre-set bias assembly negating the need for the user to set bias, making this the most ‘Plug & Play’ turntable we have ever manufactured. Ergonomically, re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance.
Rega Carbon moving magnet cartridge supplied fitted as standard. 24 V, synchronous AC motor with a new motor PCB and aluminium pulley offering low noise and better speed stability. Advanced EBLT drive belt supplied as standard for improved speed performance and accuracy. Brand new matte finish plinth with vastly improved appearance and ergonomically positioned on/off switch located on the underside. Two stunning plinth finishes available, gloss matte black and matte white.
Precision brass main bearing, offering improved fit and removing stress on the bearing itself while minimising the transfer of potential energy. (Patent Pending) 23 mm, high mass, phenolic platter with improved flywheel effect for improved speed stability. Rega’s latest custom foot design to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer. Motor cover tray with integrated cooling. 111 g ‘Plug and Play’ balance weight.
