The Technical Stuff & Key Features:
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).
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. Includes automatic bias adjustment negating the need for the user to set bias, making this the most ‘Plug & Play’ turntable we have ever manufactured. New ergonomically, re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance.
Rega Carbon moving magnet cartridge supplied fitted as standard.
24v, synchronous AC motor with a new motor PCB and aluminium pulley offering low noise and better speed stability.
Brand new Thermoset, gloss laminated plinth with vastly improved appearance and new ergonomically positioned on/off switch located on the underside. Two stunning plinth finishes available, gloss black and gloss white.
Central Bearing housing
Re-designed brass main bearing, offering improved fit and removing stress on the bearing itself while minimising the transfer of potential energy. (Patent pending)

New improved feet to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.
Motor cover tray
New motor cover tray with integrated cooling.
New 111g ‘Plug and Play’ balance weight.
We love the simplicity, beauty and quality of the Rega Planar 1Plus 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!
