Rega Planar 1 Turntable in Gloss Black
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. 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.
Cartridge: Rega Carbon cartridge supplied fitted as standard.
24v Motor: The first entry level Rega turntable to use a 24v synchronous AC motor with a new motor PCB and aluminium pulley. Offering low noise and better speed stability.
Plinth: 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 reducing stress on the bearing itself whilst minimising the transfer of potential energy.
Platter: Brand new 23mm higher mass phenolic platter with improved flywheel effect for improved speed stability.
Re-Designed feet: New improved feet to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.
Motor cover tray: New motor cover tray with integrated cooling.
Balance Weight New 111g ‘plug and play’ balance weight.
For a complete 'Vinyl Hi-Fi' package, add a Blue Aura v40 Valve Amp, some ps40 speakers and a Rega A2D pre-amp and you'll be set to go - all for the price of a smart phone or a mac-book..
