The new Planar 1 is the most user friendly Rega turntable to date. Now with preset bias force on the brand new RB110 tonearm, the Planar 1 is set up in 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.

Dollar for Dollar Hifi

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 dustcover from the outgoing RP1, this is truly a forward-thinking effort. If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further than the Planar 1.

    I can't say enough about my purchase. The P1 replaced my old Technics SL-BD20 and the upgrade not only provided a better player but it was like getting a whole new collection of records. Paired with an Ortofon Red cartridge, I'm noticing more of the music coming through and far, far less environmental noise. And while it isn't the most aesthetically pleasing table to to look at, I'm far more interested in the auditory performance it has delivered thus far. Huge thanks, too, to the staff at Needle Doctor. I was in on two different occasions to talk about what I wanted and the budget I had to work with, and both times I received informed and helpful guidance. To my surprise, they counseled me away from an unnecessary add-on purchase that wasn't going to do what I thought it would. That's fantastic customer service!
