Planar 1 Plus
The Ultimate 'Plug and Play' Turntable
We asked ourselves, how do we make the most successful turntable we have ever made sound better, be even easier to use and be more accessible to a wider audience? The answer was simple; our engineers added a custom designed, high quality, moving magnet phono stage based around the multi-award winning What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Fono Mini.
BUILT-IN PHONO STAGE
The built-in phono stage is a high specification pre-amplifier. It is designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a suitable level for all line level inputs of an appropriate system or audio amplifier. This allows simple connection to a wide variety of products using either the standard twin phono to phono lead (supplied) or phono to 3.5 mm plug (not supplied).
Brand new RB110 tonearm built with the new Rega designed, bespoke, ultra low friction bearings (Patent Pending). New bias assembly and integrated arm clip. Includes automatic bias adjustment negating the need for the user to set bias, making this the most ‘Plug & Play’ turntable we have ever manufactured. New ergonomically, re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance.
Rega Carbon moving magnet cartridge supplied fitted as standard.
24 V, synchronous AC motor with a new motor PCB and aluminium pulley offering low noise and better speed stability.
