The New Rega Planar 1 & Planar 1 Plus turntables have had a make over with a new premium Matt Black & Matt White finishes. The new versions will be supplied as standard with the premium EBLT drive belt which delivers greater accuracy and improved speed performance. This brand new model is very popular so demand is high so there will be a short wait for your order.

The Rega Planar 1 has  won multiple awards over the last couple of years and with good reason, the sound it produces is just incredible for this budget and it can really only be surpassed by spending £150 more on the awesome Planar 2

We also have also put together a great Rega Planar 1 System if you want complete Turntable System which includes an amplifier & speakers please click here.

The Planar 1 comes with a preset bias force on the brand new RB110 tonearm, it is set up in seconds after unpacking. Simply slide the balance weight onto the rear of the tonearm as far as it will go, remove the stylus guard and start spinning your favourite vinyl.

Performance beyond price 
Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance. For the first time the Planar 1 is now running a 24v, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration transfer combined with our brand new RB110 tonearm fitted with Rega's bespoke zero play bearings. Only sharing the drive belt, sub platter and dust cover from the outgoing RP1, this is truly a new turntable from the ground up.

If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.
