We asked ourselves, how do we make the most successful turntable we have ever made sound better, be even easier to use and be more accessible to a wider audience?
The answer was simple; our engineers added a custom designed, high quality, moving magnet phono stage based apon the multi-award winning Fono Mini.
For the Planar 1 Plus, we wanted to optimize this circuit for ultimate performance so we have removed the USB interface.
The new built in stage offers the ability to connect the Planar 1 Plus directly to almost any system that has a standard line input via a regular phono to phono cable (supplied) to plug into a pair of Active Speakers such as the award winning AE1 Actives.
The Planar 1 Plus benefits from all of the advantages of its sibling, the Planar 1, such as a low noise 24v motor, precision hub bearing assembly and hand-made RB110 tonearm with a factory fitted Rega Carbon cartridge. Set-up remains possible in under 30 seconds making this the easiest to use, and most flexible Rega turntable to date.
The Planar 1 Plus is available in gloss black and gloss white finishes.
