We’re putting the spotlight on a turntable that hits it out of the park on multiple fronts: the Rega Planar 1 Plus. Not only is it crafted by one of the industry’s best, the Planar 1 Plus can be set up and operated by a total novice with a pair of powered speakers (thanks to its built-in phono stage), and it delivers BIG in the sound department. And if all of that’s appealing, you can get it for under 600 bucks.
