Specifically designed for Record Store Day 2016, the Pete McKee Limited Edition RP1 Turntable is certain to be in great demand this year. Rega are proud to be a partner again for RSD 2016. It has been apparent from the beginning that the ethos and aims of RSD and Rega in supporting both vinyl replay and specifically the independent retail sector made the relationship a marriage made in heaven.
We have again produced a dedicated RSD turntable, this year featuring an iconic design commissioned from renowned Sheffield artist and music fanatic Pete McKee which is bound to create interest and sales in all RSD stores.
Designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point.
Excellent build quality, reliability and ease of use combine to make a product which will offer a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Omitting all the usual gimmicks allows us to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce records accurately.
Using a manual speed change rather than an automatic mechanism, eliminates speed inconsistencies and reduces wear of the drive belt. The money we save is spent across the design including a new hand assembled RB101 tonearm, precision main bearing, phenolic resin platter and a high quality low vibration motor which would normally be used on a turntable costing two or three times the amount.
The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that this turntable will last for many years. The RP1 is the first in a new generation of Rega turntables offering far greater performance than their predecessors.
We are confident the performance of this amazing product will impress you. Rest assured the only thing entry level about the RP1 is the price!
The all new completely British-made RP1 features:
- Brand new Rega RB101 tonearm.
- Precision main bearing and sub-platter assembly.
- High quality low vibration motor.
- All new Phenolic resin flywheel effect platter for excellent speed stability.
