£299

A special limited edition of Rega’s multi-award winning Planar 1 turntable to celebrate 15 years of Record Store Day in 2022. Featuring RSD logo, badge and of course vibrant mat we LOVE this one, it oozes cool😎.

Rega manufactured only 500 of these special edition decks and 50 contain a voucher redeemable online for a FREE signed hardback book from the likes of Tim Burgess, Bob Geldof, Booker T Jones, Robby Krieger, Shaun Ryder, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Delta Goodrem or Midge Ure (full list below).

In our opinion, the only entry level deck to consider, performing way above its price point, Rega Planar 1 comes fitted with a Rega Carbon cartridge on the RB110 tonearm and also benefits from Rega’s latest EBLT drive belt to further improve performance and speed accuracy. Planar 1 requires only to be plugged in; you will be up and running spinning vinyl in under a minute.
