We pondered: How can Rega make the most successful turntable ever created sound better, become even more user-friendly, and be more accessible to a wider audience? The answer was clear-cut; engineers added a custom-designed, high-quality, moving magnet phono stage based on the multi-award-winning What Hi-Fi? 5 Star Fono Mini.
Every single aspect of the Planar 1 PLUS has been meticulously designed to improve performance. The Planar 1 PLUS utilizes a bespoke 24 V, low-noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration, coupled with the hand-made RB110 tonearm fitted with Rega’s unique ultra-low friction bearings. The latest drive belt technology, the EBLT belt, has been integrated for greater accuracy and improved speed performance. If you are seeking to re-enter the world of vinyl and desire serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.
Built-in Phono Stage
The built-in phono stage represents a high specification pre-amplifier. Its purpose is to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to an appropriate level for all line-level inputs of a compatible system or audio amplifier. This facilitates easy connection to a range of products using either the supplied standard twin phono to phono lead or a phono to 3.5 mm plug (not included).
