Amazing Performance at an Unbeatable Price, Now Features Rega's Carbon MM Phono Cartridge

Rega really pulled the stops out with the RP1 turntable. This new table offers performance to rival even Rega's more expensive designs. Rega engineered an entirely new arm for the RP1, bolted on a superior motor, created an all new platter and eliminated a huge amount of resonance from the plinth. We're astounded Rega can offer a table this good at a price this low! This affordable table will make anyone an analog believer. The Rega RP-1 gets our highest recommendation.

“There’s no easier turntable on Earth to set up than the RP1. The combination of an improved platter and bearing are a big hit on the RP1…there was no mistake that the RP1 is a major step up. After extended listening sessions in three very different levels of systems, the RP1 definitely delivers a solid helping of analog magic. The fact is that the RP1 offers solid performance, excellent value and is a great place to start listening to vinyl!”
– Jeff Dorgay, Editor, Tone Audio

"This is the best place to start for audiophile sound at a modest price."
Rolling Stone, 4 1/2 Star Review

The RB101 is a substantial redesign of Rega's least expensive tonearm. Rega slipped in smoother, higher precision bearings and developed an all-new non-resonant headshell. This hand assembled design is quite an improvement over its predecessor, with far better tracking, improved tonal balance and a lower noise floor. The best part about this new tonearm is that adjusting tracking force with the stock cartridge is as simple as sliding the counterweight as far down the stem as it will go.

“The Rega RP1 is well made, attractive, apparently durable, and demonstrably superior to any other self-standing audio source at this price. Best of all, the RP1 is easy to own and to use. It’s not just that I can’t imagine $445 buying more happiness; I can’t imagine so modest an investment in money and effort buying more music!”
– Art Dudley, Stereophile

The only tools you will need for setup are your hands. The RP1's cartridge is pre-mounted and setting tracking force is a snap and doesn't even require any extra tools! The RP1 is so easy to setup that it may take you more time to unpack the table than to get up and running. The instruction manual is fairly straightforward, however, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us. We've done thousands of turntable setups and we will be happy to walk you through every step of the way, answer your questions and make sure you've got great sound. Please do not dispose of the RP1s box, should you ever move or require service, this is the safest way to transport the turntable.

Flywheel Effect Platter
For the first time since the introduction of Rega's flagship P9 turntable, Rega is making a big deal out of their platter technology. Created from phenolic resin and made specifically for the RP1, this new platter improves speed stability, lowers the resonant frequency of the table and helps eliminate vibration. Combined with the new more powerful and quieter motor, the RP1's performance now approaches the high-end and exceeds all expectations!

Like all Rega turntables, the RP1 comes with a hinged dust-cover which can be easily installed or removed.
