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.

Not knowing what was currently available I turned to the AV forums and review sites, and this turntable kept popping up as an extremely capable and well liked product. Based on the many positive reviews I bought it.
Set up was dead easy with very clear instructions. The operation of the deck is also very simple. You unlock the tonearm, flip it up using the small lever near the tonearm lock, position it over the record, power the deck up via a switch located under the left front of the deck, and then lower the tonearm onto the record. The only thing this deck doesn't do is automatically raise the tonearm when it reaches the centre of the record. For me this is no big deal as a lot of decks in days gone by didn't do so either ... Be aware that this deck dosen't have a built in Phono Pre-amp so it requires either an amp with a phono input, or an external Phono Pre-amp to feed a line level input on your amp. (The Planar 1 Plus has a built in Phone Pre-amp).
So what does it sound like ... ? This is a sonically outstanding turntable for the money. The sounds is dynamic and detailed and been built by Rega, it looks and feels classy too.
Update: Disregard the above. that was caused by the drive belt coming off the spindle. Many thanks to the spelt for the prompt assistance.
UPDATE - Playing for 48 hours continuously did solve the motor sound issue. I'm enjoying playing records on this but I am still surprised at the price I had to pay to get an average sound. I dread to think what sub £200 turntables sound like these days.
I was supplied with a Euro mains supply. Contacted the supplier and they offered great customer service, replying and rectifying promptly.
All in all a great turntable, no hesitation in recommending.
