TURNTABLES

RP1

RP1

The RP1 has been designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point. Excellent build quality, reliability and ease of use combine to make a product which if used correctly will offer you a lifetime of musical enjoyment.

Omitting all the usual gimmicks allows us to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce records accurately. Using a manual speed change rather than an automatic mechanism, eliminates speed inconsistencies and reduces wear of the drive belt. The money we save is spent across the design including a hand assembled RB101 tonearm, precision main bearing and a high quality low vibration motor which would normally be used on a turntable costing two or three times the amount. The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that your turntable should last for many years. The tips on the reverse of these instructions will help increase the life of your turntable and ensure optimum performance.


PLANAR1

Planar 1

The new Planar 1 is the most user friendly Rega turntable to date. Now with preset bias force on the brand new RB110 tonearm, the Planar 1 is set up in seconds after unpacking. Simply slide the balance weight onto the rear of the tonearm as far as it will go, remove the stylus guard and start spinning your favourite vinyl.

Performance beyond price
Every single aspect of the Planar 1 has been meticulously designed to improve performance. For the first time the Planar 1 is now running a 24v, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration transfer combined with our brand new RB110 tonearm fitted with Rega’s bespoke zero play bearings. Only sharing the drive belt, sub platter and dust cover from the outgoing RP1, this is truly a new turntable for 2016.

If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.

TT-PSU Power Supply

TT-PSU Power Supply

The new TT-PSU, housed in our new style case, has a new anti-vibration circuit, output circuit protection and improved power supply regulation. Offering the convenience of electronic speed change, reduced motor noise and increased stability for all Rega 24v motor turntables.

The TT-PSU is an ideal upgrade path for the Planar 3 2016 or the RP1 (RP1 when fitted with the 24v motor upgrade kit).

Important: The TT-PSU can only be used with the RP1, RP3, P3-24, RP6, P5 and P7 turntables. It is not compatible with any other Rega or manufacturers turntables.

The all new TT-PSU and motor anti-vibration circuit is a combination of the innovative P9 power supply along with an improved P25 anti-vibration motor drive feeding the P9 24v AC synchronous motor. The TT-PSU uses a remote “wall wart” transformer therefore keeping the sources of hum & noise well away from sensitive parts such as the cartridge and phono leads.

The compact TT-PSU uses exactly the same high stability, crystal locked, low distortion, sine wave generator as is used in the heart of the P9 power supply. This, along with an efficient drive amplifier fed from stabilised DC power supply, generates a 24v AC balanced signal of less than 0.05% distortion, which is completely unaffected by any changes in the mains/line voltage and conditions. This then drives the turntables anti-vibration circuit which is situated beneath the turntable.

The drive voltage for the motor is run along the power lead to the turntable motor which also carries the 33/45-RPM DC relay control voltage used to activate the anti-vibration circuit.

Technical Specification

The TT-PSU can be used in conjunction with the RP3, P3-24 and P5 Turntable as an optional upgrade.
Dimensions: Width 178mm x Depth140mm x Height 45mm.
