The Rega Planar 1 Turntable is where the sound quality comes as standard. Rega turntable is their most 'Plug and Play' turntable to date, simply slide the balance weight onto the rear of the tonearm as far as it will go, remove the stylus guard and you're good to go. The planar 1 turntable is extremely easy to setup. 

Rega Planar 1 Turntable

Rega Planar 1 Turntable  is pretty much a completely new turntable compared to the Rega RP1, the only things kept the same are the drive belt, sub-platter, and dust cover. It features a brand new RB110 tonearm (which has its bias force preset so it can be set up in seconds) and is fitted with Rega designed bespoke zero play bearings. It's got a 24v low noise synchronous motor which reduces vibration transfer and it is the first entry-level turntable Rega has ever made that includes a motor of that kind. The Rega Planar 1 Turntable comes with a factory fitted Rega Carbon cartridge which is a high-quality moving magnet pick-up cartridge designed to be simple to set up, easy to install, and above all accurately reproduce music.

The Rega Planar 1 Turntable is the Rega RP1 replacement. As such, Rega has proudly proclaimed that the Planar 1 is the most user-friendly model they have ever produced.

A newly designed Thermoset plinth is available in two gloss finishes, Black and White have a massively improved appearance compared to the old model and the on/off switch is located on the underside in an easier to reach the place. The motor cover tray has integrated cooling meaning the motor won't be allowed to overheat and a brand new 23mm phenolic platter has been included which features a higher quality flywheel effect for improved speed constancy. The record player is designed for anti-skating, minimising the transfer of potential energy. And to top it all off the feet have been redesigned so vibration transfer is reduced the stability is increased.
