Rega Planar 1 Plus Turntable Overview

The devil in dealing with digital devices is, when you just want to ease back and relax with some soothing black vinyl, there’s often nowhere to plug in a turntable. So, to complete the perfect out-of-box experience, Rega has installed a phono preamplifier right in the plinth/base of the Planar 1 Plus. The Planar 1, the most popular record player the UK specialist ever produced, had already simplified set-up with a pre-tweaked and balanced tonearm/cartridge combination. Now, the Plus of the Planar 1 Plus is an adapted version of Rega’s Fono Mini A2D phono preamp, an ideal match for the highly regarded Carbon moving magnet cartridge included with the RP1. The included phono cables (you might also need a 3.5mm adapter) connect you to any equipment with a line-level input, to enjoy the vinyl nirvana you seek. You get all the other advantages of the legendary RP1: the RB110 tonearm with zero-play bearings, a low-noise motor with aluminum pulley, the striking Thermoset gloss-laminated plinth, and incredibly simple set-up in minutes.

A Positive Plus

Rega’s Fono Mini A2D was already a fine match for the company’s own cartridges, amplifying and equalizing low-level moving-magnet signals for connection to an amp or receiver – or laptop, with an included USB port. Rega adapted the Mini, minus the USB, to nestle comfortably within the base of the RP1+. It’s not only convenient, but it also shortens, shields and solders wiring runs that often can attract external hum and noise. What Hi-Fi?, in its review, reiterates its 5-star enthusiasm for the Planar 1: “Rega delivers another winner – the Planar 1 Plus is the perfect marriage of convenience and sound quality.”

A Tweaked Tonearm

Rega’s new RB110 tonearm is fitted with what the company calls “bespoke zero-play” ultra-low friction bearings, which means the arm pivots effortlessly when it should, without wiggling when it shouldn’t. The head shell is ergonomically redesigned and stiffened. Antiskate compensation is applied automatically to counteract a tonearm’s tendency to swing inwards. And the tonearm-cartridge combination is factory set for that plug-and-play experience.

A Finer Flywheel

The RP1+ platter is formed of high-mass phenolic resin (a synthetic polymer), with the weight distributed toward the rim to enhance the flywheel effect and smooth out speed variations. The spindle has improved brass bearings, the sub-platter is belt-driven with an aluminum pulley, and the 24V synchronous motor is designed for low noise and speed stability.

A Better Base

The strikingly attractive plinth of the RP1+ is Thermoset high-gloss synthetics, available in black or white, and laminated to reduce external vibrations. (Like any turntable, you should take some care in the RP1’s placement, away from speakers and on an isolated, sturdy shelf.)

A Simpler Setup

Adjusted, balanced, tweaked and even set to the proper tracking force, the RP1+’s tonearm, cartridge and preamp come out of the carton as easy as possible to prepare. Slide on the 111-gram counterweight to the preset location at the back of the tonearm, remove the stylus guard, plug a power outlet and a line input on your amp, receiver or powered speaker, and take your new Rega Planar 1 Plus out for a spin.

Can't go wrong with this one!
Bought this as an upgrade for my starter turntable. I was very surprised at the audio quality. It brings out sounds from the albums that my turntable didn't reproduce. The motor was quite noisy at first, but after checking around different websites found that it needed a little time to break in. Now you can barely hear it run. The preamp that is built in very nice. Produces a nice clear sound with no background noise whatsoever. Setup is very easy as well. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

Is the counterweight and anti-skate adjustable if you change the cartridge?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2019
  it is fully adjustable.
Is there a way to change speeds without having to move belt?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The drive belt must be moved to either the 33 1/3 RPM pully or the 45 RPM pully. There is no other method to select speed.
