Performance beyond price

This multi-award-winning ‘Plug and Play’ design utilizes Rega's handmade RB110 tonearm, with pre-set bias and a factory-fitted Carbon cartridge. Set-up is possible in under 30 seconds and delivers incredible performance well beyond its price point.

A fresh new look for the multi-award-winning Planar 1. Rega is delighted to introduce the new matt finish Planar 1. Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance. The Planar 1 uses a bespoke 24 V, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration combined with their hand-made RB110 tonearm fitted with the unique Rega-designed ultra-low friction bearings. Rega has 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.

Rega has great sound
My brother-in-law, a PhD in a field heavily into electronics, recommended this turntable. In terms of "bells and whistles", it is a basic, manual device. In terms of sounds quality, it is outstanding. Totally happy with this turntable!

Best turntable for the money.

Best turntable for the money.

Does it play 78 records ?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2022
  Thanks for your inquiry. The Rega Planar 1 plays 33 and 45RPM records. Rega does make the RP78 which is a dedicated 78RPM player.
Is the Planar 1 fully automatic ?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2022
  Thanks for your question. The Rega turntables are manual. They have no automatic start / auto lift functionality. Note that we offer high performance turntables from Thorens and Dual that have auto lift at end of record.
