Rega Matt Planar 1
Brand New Entry-level Turntable
The Rega Matt Planar 1 turntable is an update on the incredible Planar 1, launched in 2016. The Matt Planar 1 features the same ground-breaking design for an entry-level turntable. Now, it comes with a new matt-finish design, available in black or white. It also comes with Rega’s new EBLT drive belt.
The RB110 tonearm is a unique design featuring zero play bearings. This helps to provide a very low friction performance. The tonearm adjusts bias automatically. As a result, this helps make the Planar 1 the most ‘Plug & Play’ turntable Rega have ever manufactured. The tonearm also features an ergonomically, re-designed stiffer head shell for improved usability and appearance.
Rega’s Carbon cartridge is supplied fitted as standard. A perfect fit that works seamlessly with the Matt Planar 1. The Carbon’s stylus can be easily exchanged after a few years of use, without the need for screw drivers, pliers or rebalancing.
