This is the Rega brand RP1 turntable in Cool Grey with a RP1 performance pack. 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 will offer 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 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. The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that this turntable will last for many years. The RP1 is the first in a new generation of Rega turntables offering far greater performance than their predecessors. We are confident the performance of this amazing new product will impress you.
The RP1 Performance Pack turntable includes the Rega Bias2 moving magnet cartridge, upgrade drive belt and a high performance 100% natural wool turntable mat usually supplied with the P3, P5 and P7. You will also find a 14mm diameter rubber spacer fitted to the balance weight shaft which ensures the plug and play design of the RP1 remains. Designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point. The increased drive delivered by the upgrade belt offers greater speed stability and accuracy. This is especially noticeable during long musical notes which adds greatly to the musical performance of the turntable. A hand assembled moving magnet cartridge which uses a high quality elliptical stylus and parallel wound coils that would usually be found in cartridges costing many times the amount. Housed in Rega's unique lightweight high rigidity cartridge body the Bias 2 offers a detailed, balanced performance with tight bass and excellent stereo imagery. A high quality mat manufactured from 100% natural wool. Wool having stiffer fibers than synthetic man made material directly improves coupling between the phenolic resin platter and the vinyl LP. Setting up your RP1 takes seconds. The Plug & Play gauge is a simple solution to setting up the correct tracking weight. Simply place the card gauge over the balance weight shaft, fit the weight up against the gauge and then remove the gauge. This will automatically set the tracking weight to the desired setting for the Rega Bias 2.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the fact that turntables often do not work properly when used with converters, we do not ship turntables outside of North America. Also, unfortunately, we cannot ship turntables to P.O. boxes.
