The Rega Planar 1 Turntable - A Ground-Up Re-Design

As part of Rega's re-design of 3 of it's most successful turntables,the Planar 1 will certainly be the most user-friendly Rega turntable to date.The Planar 1 has a brand new RB110 tonearm that is set up in seconds.Every single aspect of the Planar has been meticulously designed to improve performance.For a sub 600 turntable it is amazing that the Planar 1 is running a 24 volt, low noise synchronous motor to reduce vibration transfer combined with Rega's zero play bearings.this new deck gives performance beyond it's price.

Despite the huge success and accolades in the reviews of Rega's previous model RP1 turntable,the Planar 1 comes to the table with a complete re-design from motor to the higher mass platter to tonearm to new high gloss plinth the Planar 1 impresses from many angles.

And then there is the sound of the Planar 1.What Hifi Magazine said of the Rega Planar 1....."If you can render a record so faithfully as the Planar 1 does that warmth of it's rivals begins to feel like dowsing your Christmas dinner in tomato sauce.....In these times bereft of certainty,there is far worse that you could do than close the curtains,settle in to your favourite armchair and spin a few records on a new Rega Planar 1."

The Rega Planar 1 is certainly a standout in terms of value for money in the entry-level quality turntable market.....it is far from entry level.....in fact a toe-tapping musical surprise that will have you looking for another record to play.
