The Ultimate 'Plug and Play' Turntable
Rega asked themselves, "how do we make the most successful turntable we have ever made sound better, be even easier to use and be more accessible to a wider audience?". The answer was simple; their engineers added a custom-designed, high-quality, moving magnet phono stage based around the multi-award winning What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Fono Mini.
For 2021 Rega has a fresh new look for the Planar 1 PLUS. They are delighted to introduce a stunning new matt finish. Every single aspect of the Planar 1 PLUS has been meticulously designed to improve performance. The Planar 1 PLUS uses a bespoke 24 V, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration combined with hand-made RB110 tonearm fitted with their unique Rega-designed ultra-low friction bearings. Rega added their latest drive belt technology the EBLT belt which delivers greater accuracy and improved speed performance. If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.
