PLANAR 1 PLUS NEW
All the features of the award-winning Planar 1 turntable with the addition of a built-in high quality MM phono stage, making this the ultimate ‘Plug and Play’ turntable.
How could Rega make the most successful turntable it has ever made sound better, and be even easier to use and be more accessible to a wider audience? Simple; add a custom designed, high quality, moving magnet phono stage based around the multi-award winning What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Fono Mini.
For 2021 Planar 1 PLUS has a fresh new look with the introduction of a stunning new matt finish. Every single aspect of the Planar 1 PLUS has been meticulously designed to improve performance. The Planar 1 PLUS uses a bespoke 24 V, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration combined with a hand made RB110 tonearm fitted with Rega designed ultra-low friction bearings and now the addition of Rega’s latest drive belt technology the EBLT belt which delivers greater accuracy and improved speed performance. If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.
