The New Rega Planar 1 Plus & Planar 1 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.
The Planar 1 Plus benefits from all of the advantages of its sibling, the Planar 1, such as a low noise 24v motor, precision hub bearing assembly and hand made RB110 tonearm with a factory fitted Rega Carbon cartridge.
Added to the Planar 1 plus is a phono stage (preamp) built into the unit. This boosts the sound output to line level which allows connection to powered speakers or amplifiers that don't have a phono stage.
The Rega Planar 1 Plus is prefect with the award winning Q Acoustics M20 HD power speakers, we have a put together the Rega Planar 1 Plus Turntable and the Q Acoustics M20 Speaker as a system and you save a little with our saver package, click here.
Set-up remains possible in under 30 seconds making this the easiest to use, and most flexible Rega turntable to date.

Built-in Phono Stage
The built-in phono stage is a high specification pre-amplifier. It is designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a suitable level for all line level inputs of an appropriate system or audio amplifier. This allows simple connection to a wide variety of products using either the standard twin phono to phono lead (supplied) or phono to 3.5 mm plug (not supplied).
