Rega Planar 1 (P1) Turntable - Black Gloss
Available online only
Simply slide the balance weight onto the rear of the tonearm as far as it will go, remove the stylus guard and start spinning your favourite vinyl. Performance beyond price Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance. For the first time the Planar 1 is now running a 24v, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration transfer combined with our brand new RB110 tonearm fitted with Rega's bespoke zero play bearings. Only sharing the drive belt, sub platter and dust cover from the outgoing RP1, this is truly a new turntable for 2016. If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.

I recevied the turntable quicker than expected. More importantly, the guys at Spinners Sound Centre walked me some troubleshooting for an issue I was having with the setup (which had nothing to do with the turntable). So far very happy with the Rega and the support from Spinners.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- Best entry level tt hands DOWN for audio- April 7, 2021
So this is a review for Rega Planar 1 turntable..... I don't write bestbuy reviews ever... This is my first one for best buy. But I had to put my feedback here to help other newb turntable buyers save a lot of time and energy and money . My first turntable was just to get my feet wet with vinyls. Ended up buying a used audio technica LP60x. Quickly realised this isn't good enough. It was pretty decent if you just like playing vinyls and don't really care for audiophile quality playback. I found the built in phono unsatisfactory and tried using phono out with my own preamp.... this tt noisy when using phono out. Tried to fix it with grounding and all sorts of isolators. No good. Ended up moving up to a Project Essential series turntable. This was much nicer turntable. However it suffered from turntable motor noise that was getting into the audio path. I sent it out for a warranty repair because this was audible in low volume playback. It was NOT fixable. I finally ended up getting this rega p1. This turntable is dead silent. No motor noises. No weird humming... I have exact same setup as other tt (audiotechnica and Project ), and nothing's changed but the turntable.... Amazing. The stock cartridge(rega carbon) is also MUCH nicer sounding than the stock cartridge in Project stock cartridge (ortofon OM5e)... Much more bass and mid presence ... The ortofon was thin and lacked a lot of bass--; often required additional EQing on my receiver to get it boosted. With rega, it just sounds fantastic without any eq help. Though this has a lot to do with cartridge and stylus , I'm comparing what you get out of box for similar price tag. The rega in general has a much more airy and wider sound.... Project just sounds compressed and flat for some reason. It's simply no match in my opinion. Theres more. I ended up trying to compare rega with project turntable Apples to apples. Same phono preamp . And I put the ortofon OM5e on the rega AND the project turntable just to see if there's anything different. It was night and day. Project vs Rega, there's something about the tone arm on the rega that's really drawing out more dynamics compared to the Project essentials tone arm... Or maybe it's the electronics ??? All I know is, using same cartridge and same phono pre amp, the rega sounds just more full, brings out more bass and mids , much more airy spacey sound than the Project turntable . I'm very very happy finally. My quest to find the ultimate budget entry level audiophile turntable is over. This is simply an outstanding model and I can easily recommend this purchase to anyone looking to get into turntables. Don't waste your time with audio technica and Project turntables at the entry level class .... Rega has been around forever and they know how to make turntables.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
