Rega Planar 1 Turntable - Gloss Black
We love the simplicity, beauty and quality of the Rega Planar 1 Turntable - it not only looks great, but sounds great too. Rega have been building turntables at their factory in Southend on Sea for over 40 years. Match it up with a Blue Aura v40* Valve Amp and a pair of ps40 speakers and you'll have a cracking set-up for your vinyl for the price of one of those fancy-dan smart phones.
The Planar 1 is the most user friendly Rega turntable to date. Now with preset bias force on the brand new RB110 tonearm, the Planar 1 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.
The Technical Stuff & Key Features:
Tonearm: Brand new RB110 tonearm built with the new Rega designed bespoke zero play bearings with ultra-low friction performance (Patent Pending). New bias assembly and integrated arm clip.
