The Rega Planar 1 Turntable brings a whole new meaning to the “Value for Money”.
The Rega Planar 1 is fitted with the brand new Rega RB110 tonearm built with the new Rega designed, bespoke, zero play bearings with ultra-low friction performance. The RB110 also features a new bias assembly with an integrated arm clip. This new design includes automatic bias adjustment negating the need for the user to set the bias manually, making the Planar 1 the most ‘Plug & Play’ Rega turntable to date. The RB110 is fitted with a re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance.
The Rega Planar 1 is the first entry level Rega turntable to use a 24v synchronous AC motor. The now discontinued RP3 was until recently the cheapest Rega model (£475 exc. cartridge) to be fitted with a 24v synchronous motor. The 24v motor assembly provides low noise and improved speed stability.
The new Thermoset, gloss laminated turntable plinth has a vastly improved appearance with an ergonomically positioned on/off switch, which is located on the underside of the P1. The new plinth is available in two stunning finishes, gloss black and gloss white.
04.07.18 Update. Please be aware that Rega have announced that the Performance Pack upgrade has been withdrawn. Rega are discontinuing the weight matched Bias 2 (black insert) and will no longer be able to recommend the Rega Bias 2 to be used on the RP1, Planar 1 or Planar 1 Plus turntables.
