-Rega Planar 1 Turntable including Performance Pack
View current Vinyl list
The Planar 1 is pretty much a completely new turntable compared to the 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 Planar 1 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.
A newly designed Thermoset plinth is available in two gloss finishes, Black and White, has a massively improved appearance compared to the old model and the on/off switch is located on the underside in an easier to reach 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. And to top it all off the feet have been redesigned so vibration transfer is reduced and stability is increased.
Included with this turntable is the Rega performance pack which includes an upgraded drive belt, Bias 2 Cartridge and a higher quality mat. The improved belt adds greater speed, stability and accuracy which is noticeable most during long musical notes. The Rega Bias 2 cartridge offers outstanding sound quality and value for money. Proprietary designs use new parallel wound coils and pivot pads for improved detail, accuracy and excellent stereo imagery. The Rega Bias 2 has a conventional 0.5" centre distance and two hole mounting and will therefore fit all standard tone arms. The overall design makes it a perfect match for the Planar 2. The mat is made from 100% natural wool and directly improves the coupling between the phenolic resin platter and the vinyl LP.
