Rega Planar 1

The service from Rapallo was absolutely outstanding. Thanks so much for 'the gift' as well. It has been a few years since I last enjoyed vinyl - and it is great to be doing so again. This is my second Rega turntable, having had a Rega 3 in the past in a different time. Thanks Deano and Rapallo

Rega Planar 1

A novice to the turntable realm, the Rega was very easy to set up. I use the Rega Fono Mini a2d. It sounds beautiful. Clannad's Robin of Sherwood "legend" soundtrack, was the real surprise. Bringing forth the vocals of Moya Brennan and the haunting synths, beautifully. This was pressed back in 1984. I love the player.

Description

Rega Planar 1 Turntable

A fresh look for the multi-award winning Rega Planar 1 Turntable.

Rega are delighted to introduce the new matt finish Planar 1. Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance. The Planar 1 uses a bespoke 24 V, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration combined with their hand made RB110 tonearm fitted with the unique Rega designed ultra-low friction bearings.

They have added the latest drive belt technology the EBLT belt which delivers greater accuracy and improved speed performance. If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.

The new special edition Walnut effect finish will be introduced across August & September 2022 and is constructed from the same high rigidity premium laminate used on the standard matt P1.

This is an attractive, high quality, realistic finish which is supplied as standard with the premium smoked dustcover to set off the design.
