Planar 1 (2021) Turntable


Brand new for 2021, Rega has refreshed the Planar 1 turntable, replacing high gloss finishes with Matt Black, Matt White and Walnut. In our opinion, the only entry level deck to consider, performing way above its price point.

Rega Planar 1 for 2021 also benefits from being fitted with Rega’s latest EBLT drive belt to further improve performance and speed accuracy. Planar 1 comes fitted with a Rega Carbon cartridge on the RB110 tonearm and requires only to be plugged in; you will be up and running spinning vinyl in under a minute.
