Description

Rega have been a long-time collaborator and official turntable sponsor of Record Store Day, with their exclusive RSD turntables becoming a hugely popular over the years. This year has seen them pull out all the stops to offer record collectors the chance to get their hands on a truly unique set up.

The 15th-anniversary RSD turntable is based on the multi-award-winning Rega Planar 1 and is customised with an exclusive Record Store Day mat, lid badge and silk screen logo. Made by hand in the UK, the RSD 15th Anniversary Planar 1 uses a high specification low noise 24v motor, handmade RB110 precision tonearm and factory fitted Rega Carbon cartridge. The turntable delivers exceptional audio performance, can be set up in under 30 seconds and is supplied with Rega’s lifetime warranty for total peace of mind.

Rega Planar 1 Turntable – Matt Black

The Planar 1 is the most user friendly Rega turntable to date. Now with preset bias force on the brand new RB110 tonearm, the Planar 1 is set up in seconds after unpacking. 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.
