This multi-award winning ‘Plug and Play’ design utilises our handmade RB110 tonearm, with pre-set bias and a factory fitted Carbon cartridge. Set-up is possible in under 30 seconds and delivers incredible performance well beyond its price point.
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 24 V, low noise, synchronous motor to reduce vibration transfer combined with our brand new RB110 tonearm fitted with our bespoke ultra-low friction play bearings. Only sharing the drive belt, sub platter and dust cover from the outgoing RP1, this is truly a new turntable from the ground up.
If you are looking to get back into vinyl and want serious performance that will last you a lifetime, then look no further.
