The new Rega Planar 1 is a complete redesign of the very popular great selling RP 1 turntable. This new turntable surpasses the sonic quality of the older RP 1 performance pack in my opinion which i considered the best sub $1k turntable in the store. The Planar 1 features Rega’s new RB110 tonearm with zero play bearings that offer ultra low friction performance. The Planar 1 comes equipment with a Rega Carbon cartridge.
