Rega Planar 1
$595.00 – $650.00
Performance beyond price. 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 from the ground up.
If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.
Available in Matte White, Matte Black, and in Walnut Effect. Ask us about our phono cartridge upgrade special.
This multi-award winning ‘Plug and Play’ design utilises our handmade RB110 tonearm, with pre-set bias and a factory fitted Carbon cartridge. Set-up is possible in under 30 seconds and delivers incredible performance well beyond its price point.
