A fresh new look for the multi-award winning Planar 1. We are delighted to introduce the new matt finish Planar 1. Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance. The Planar 1 uses a bespoke 24 V, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration combined with our hand made RB110 tonearm fitted with our unique Rega designed ultra-low friction bearings. We have added our 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.

The new special edition Walnut effect finish will be introduced across August & September 2022 and is constructed from the same high rigidity premium laminate used on the standard matt P1. This is an attractive, high quality, realistic finish which is supplied as standard with the premium smoked dustcover to set off the design.
