The state-of-the-art Planar 1 from Rega is the company's most user-friendly deck so far, with a preset bias force on the newly developed RB110 tonearm - the Planar 1 is essentially ready from the box. All that's required is for the balance weight to be slipped onto the back of the tonearm as far as it will go, remove the stylus guard, and then hear your music as it as intended to be heard.
Every element of the Planar 1 has been carefully and vigorously improved upon earlier designs. The Planar 1 now runs a 24v, low-noise, synchronous motor. This drastically reduces any potential vibration that may otherwise negatively affect the sound of your record. The turntable comes supplied with the RB110 tonearm as standard. This arm uses Rega's exclusive zero-bearings design Including an automatic bias adjustment negating the need for the user to set bias, making this the most ‘Plug & Play’ turntable that Rega have ever manufactured. New ergonomically, re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance
This is the perfect jumping-on point for anyone who is looking to get into Vinyl playback for the first time.
Comes supplied with a lid as standard
