The atmospheric sound of a Rega playing vinyl brings the music to life. This Rega has body in its sound and a real analogue warmth. The combination of accuracy and a skill for knitting together the different strands is displayed with expertise by the Planar 1. It sounds dynamic and detailed, with great timing and toe-tapping rhythm. It looks and feels classy, too. Few turntables in this price category can render a record so faithfully as the Planar 1 does. The Planar 1's thermoset, gloss laminate finish in black or white add a definitive touch of class. Also includes an elegant dustcover.
