Designer: Rega (2016)
Country of Origin: Britain
Materials: Phenolic Resin, Painted MDF
Why is it Special?
Designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point. The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that this turntable will last for many years. 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 new hand assembled RB101 tonearm, precision main bearing, phenolic resin platter and a high quality low vibration motor which would normally be used on a turntable costing two or three times the amount.
