Rega Planar 1 Plus Eco Green
Rega's new green-grade initiative is aimed at repurposing parts that would typically be discarded due to cosmetic imperfections. All these parts will function impeccably and maintain Rega's unparalleled limited lifetime warranty.
- Each deck undergoes rigorous testing, meeting the same strict criteria as an 'A' grade Planar 1.
- Performance remains uncompromised.
- While a lifetime warranty covers functional defects, it does not extend to cosmetics.
- All units are equipped with 'A' grade Carbon cartridges.
- The ECO DECKS' plinths are unmarked with a P1 logo for easy recognition as Green Grade.
To be clear, instead of recycling parts with cosmetic flaws, Rega decided to UpCycle those parts to build ECO Green-Grade Rega products. These products function and perform flawlessly and come with Rega's unrivaled Limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects.
The Rega Planar 1 Plus ECO benefits from all of the advantages of its sibling, the Planar 1, such as a low-noise 24v motor, precision hub bearing assembly, and hand-made RB110 tonearm with a factory-fitted Rega Carbon cartridge.
Added to the Planar 1 Plus ECO is a MM phono stage (preamp) attached to the unit on the bottom. This boosts the signal output to line-level intensity, which allows connection to powered speakers or amplifiers that don't have a dedicated phono stage input.
These multi-award winning ‘Plug & Play’ models utilize Rega's handmade RB110 tonearm, with pre-set anti-skate and a factory-fitted Carbon MM cartridge. Set-up is possible in under 30 seconds and delivers incredible performance far beyond its price point.
If exceptional musical performance and purchase value are important to you, please consider a Rega ECO Green-Grade turntable and feel proud you are helping our planet at the same time.
For Rega, this is a non-profit initiative designed to use parts and save them from being disposed of.
BUILT-IN PHONO STAGE
The built-in phono stage is a high specification pre-amplifier. It is designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a suitable level for all line level inputs of an appropriate system or audio amplifier. This allows simple connection to a wide variety of products using either the standard twin phono to phono lead (supplied) or phono to 3.5 mm plug (not supplied).
RB110 tonearm built with Rega designed, bespoke, ultra low friction bearings (Patent Pending). Pre-set bias assembly negating the need for the user to set bias, making this the most ‘Plug & Play’ turntable we have ever manufactured. Ergonomically, re-designed and stiffer headshell for improved usability and appearance.
