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.

It’s allowed me to enjoy stuff I haven’t heard for years, sounding fabulous for a relatively modest outlay and has added another facet to my musical enjoyment. Wholeheartedly recommended.
I listen to a lot of Jazz Fusion, which has the potential to be hard-driving and complex, and easily descends into a mush if you don't have a system that can resolve fine detail. No such problem with the Planar 1. First up was Chick Corea's album "Light As Feather". Beautiful! A breath of fresh air after listening to it on CD. Others, including Santana's "Moonflower", were equally refreshing.
The turntable came with Rega's own cartridge pre-installed. The only set-up necessary was to remove the packing from under the platter and fit the balance weight onto the tonearm. Just right for someone who is a little "out of practice"!
The Planar 1 is a beautiful minimalist piece of kit. The plinth is gloss black, as is the fairly thick phenolic platter. There is just a simple "P1" logo on the plinth, and no visible controls. (Speed is controlled by moving the belt onto a different cog under the platter, and the on/off switch is easily reached but concealed beneath the edge of the plinth).
I don't consider myself an audiophile at all, and I have a modest set-up. The P1 is fed into a Marantz p4000 amp, driving a pair of Eltax bookshelf speakers. But the Planar 1 is really the icing on the cake for me. I now feel I could sit and listen to this set-up for hours and not feel at all dissatisfied.
Considering this is Rega's entry level turntable I am extremely pleased with it - maybe one day I'll upgrade to a P3 but for now the P1 is more than enough for my ears.
Highly recommended for anyone looking to get away from the flat digital files we've all come to accept as the norm - this is how music should be listened to.
Footnote: As a vinyl newbie, I struggled to work out all of the components I needed for a completely new system, so here is what I paired the Planar with ...
