Rega Planar 1 Turntable features

Award-Winning Rega Planar 1 Turntable

Award-Winning Rega Planar 1 Turntable

The Rega Planar 1 combines easy set up with precise audio handling, making it the perfect turntable for those starting to get back into vinyl or anyone picking up a record for the first time. 

  • Belt-driven turntable with 24v low noise motor to reduce vibration transfer
  • High quality RB110 tonearm and Rega Carbon Cartridge captures every detail
  • Adjustable speeds
  • Pre-Amp not included
  • What HiFi award-winning turntable



Top Features

Top Features

As Rega’s entry level model, the Planar 1 is still packed with features. The new RB110 tonearm is complete with high precision bearings, a new 111g ‘Plug & Play’ balance weight and automatic bias adjustment, reducing friction and ensuring the tonearm is set and ready to use when you first get it out of the box.

This is a massive bonus if you’re new to vinyl or returning after a number of years apart, as you wont need to balance the counterweight and anti-skate during set up. 

The Planar 1 also boasts Rega’s Carbon Cartridge as standard and a re-designed headshell which is both stiffer & more ergonomic for improved styling and function.



What We Love

What We Love

The Planar 1 is belt-driven and easily handles both 33rpm and 45rpm play speeds. Set up is easy and the finished product offers clean, detailed audio with all the crackle and nostalgia we love about vinyl.

The Planar 1 also offers a 24v, very low noise, synchronous AC motor which reduces the transfer of vibrations and, combined with an aluminium pulley, it offers better speed stability.

Iconic Design

Iconic Design

You can see the expert craftsmanship that shines through Rega’s legacy as a turntable specialist.

The thermoset, laminated plinth is understated but stylish, available in both Gloss Black and Gloss White. Rega have removed the ‘fuss’, with just the platter and tonearm visible on the plinth & the power switch is neatly hidden.

The 23mm, higher mass, phenolic platter has an improved flywheel effect which improves speed stability, minimises friction and ensures that the audio is true to the artist’s intention.

Specially designed feet increase stability to reduce vibration transfer. A dust cover is included, featuring an intuitive hinged design to make it unobtrusive but protective.



Simple, No-Fuss Setup

Simple, No-Fuss Setup

All you need to do is slide the counterweight onto the tonearm to the maximum distance, remove the guard from the stylus, connect to your speaker or amp and enjoy the crackle of your favourite vinyls!

The Planar 1 requires an external pre-amp, but this allows you the flexibility to use any pre-amp and upgrade this as you go if required. We recommend checking out our Planar 1 pre-amp bundle for the whole package.

How To Use

How To Use

The Planar range can be connected to a variety of speakers and amplifiers, making it versatile to your needs. 

We love the ease of an active speaker like the Sonos Five and Marshall Stanmore II, allowing you to plug and play. You can also access other content easily through music streaming and digital radio.

The purists amongst us may appreciate an Amp and Hifi Speaker set up more and the Planar range is sure to accommodate your needs. Check out the Sonos Amp or Rega IO amp for further inspiration.
