Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance. For the first time the Planar 1 is now running a 24v, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration transfer combined with our brand new RB110 tonearm fitted with Rega's bespoke zero play bearings. Only sharing the drive belt, sub platter and dust cover from the outgoing RP1, this is truly a new turntable.
Tonearm: Brand new RB110 tonearm built with the new Rega designed bespoke zero play bearings with ultra-low friction performance (Patent Pending). New bias assembly and integrated arm clip. Includes automatic bias adjustment negating the need for the user to set bias, making this the most Plug & Play turntable we have ever manufactured. New ergonomically re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance.
Cartridge: Rega Carbon cartridge supplied fitted as standard.
24v Motor: The first entry level Rega turntable to use a 24v synchronous AC motor with a new motor PCB and aluminium pulley. Offering low noise and better speed stability.
Plinth: Brand new thermoset gloss laminated plinth with vastly improved appearance and new ergonomically positioned on/off switch located on the underside. Two stunning plinth finishes available gloss black and gloss white.
Central Bearing housing: Re-designed brass main bearing, offering improved fit and reducing stress on the bearing itself whilst minimising the transfer of potential energy. (Patent pending)
Platter: Brand new 23mm higher mass phenolic platter with improved flywheel effect for improved speed stability.
Re-Designed feet: New improved feet to increase stability and reduce vibration transfer.
Motor cover tray: New motor cover tray with integrated cooling. Balance Weight New 111g 'plug and play' balance weight
