The Planar 1 is pretty much a completely new turntable compared to the RP1, the only things kept the same are the drive belt, sub platter and dust cover. It features a brand new RB110 tonearm (which has its bias force preset so it can be set up in seconds) and is fitted with Rega designed bespoke zero play bearings. It's got a 24v low noise synchronous motor which reduces vibration transfer and it is the first entry level turntable Rega has ever made that includes a motor of that kind. The Planar 1 comes with a factory fitted Rega Carbon cartridge which is a high quality moving magnet pick-up cartridge designed to be simple to set up, easy to install, and above all accurately reproduce music.

The record player looks amazing too, but looks are nothing without performance :-)
One minor niggle-there is no manual (except for a 12" disc sized card on the platter) so I had to go online to find out how to stop the thing spinning when you want to turn over the record (answer-you don't, you either cut the power or take the disc off while it's spinning, which isn't as dodgy as it sounds-the felt platter prevents damage to your record), also to change speed there is no button to switch speeds-you have to remove the platter and move the belt with your finger to the bigger spindle (yes, really!) but even this is fine when your ears are given such a treat.
So back to the music. I'm sure The Staveley sisters are in here in somewhere with me, serenading me. A record CAN'T sound this good....
(FYI-I'm hooked up to a 40 year old Pioneer amp (so no need of a pre amp) and a pair of Denon bookshelf speakers)
