Rega Planar 1
The Planar 1 is one the most straightforward and user-friendly turntable from Rega. The Planar 1 can be set up seconds after unpacking. Simply slide the balance weight onto the rear of the tonearm as far as it will go, remove the stylus guard and start spinning your favourite vinyl!
The Rega Planar 1 is straight-forward in design, with a manual speed adjustment and discretely-hidden motor switch. The Planar 1 is simple and sleek, with the idea of providing the best possible sound for an affordable price. If you wish to change the speed, simply lift the platter and move the drive belt to the desired ‘speed groove’.
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 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.
