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. Ergonomically, designed headshell for improved usability and appearance.
Rega Carbon cartridge supplied fitted as standard. The Carbon delivers a punchy performance with tight bass and balanced tonal control. It features a removable stylus for easy replacement.
24 V Synchronous Motor
The first entry-level Rega turntable to use a 24 V, synchronous AC motor with a new motor PCB and aluminum pulley offering low noise and better speed stability.
Advanced EBLT Drive Belt
The Planar 1 includes a custom made high-quality Advanced EBLT drive belt, moulded on Rega’s highly accurate custom tooling using a unique secret blend. Once moulded, the belts are cryogenically frozen and barrelled to remove any excess flash in order to create perfect cross sectional roundness which is critical for accurate speed and stability. In normal use and conditions, the lifespan of the EBLT drive belt is 50% longer than the previous model.
A notable reduction in weighted peak Wow / Flutter measurements are produced by the increased accuracy and cross sectional roundness of the EBLT belt. The standard belt measures 0.253% / the Advanced EBLT measures 0.162%.
Brand new matt finish plinth with vastly improved appearance and ergonomically positioned on/off switch located on the underside. Two stunning plinth finishes available, matt black or matt white.
