Rega RP1 Turntable Targets Entry-Level Audiophiles
Rega, a UK concern operating out of Southend-on-Sea, has designed the entry-level RP1 turntable to deliver performance way beyond the sub $500 price point.
Using a manual speed change rather than an automatic mechanism, the RP1 eliminates speed inconsistencies and reduces wear of the drive belt. The new hand-assembled RB101 tonearm, precision main bearing, phenolic resin platter and a high quality low vibration motor combine to provide excellent fidelity.
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.
