"This is the best place to start for audiophile sound at a modest price." – Rolling Stone, 4 1/2 Star Review
"Best turntable up to £400, Awards 2011. The RP1 is a great buy. It’s a budget deck that doesn’t sound like one."
- WhatHiFi, 5 Star Review
The Rp1 is consistently rated the best turntable under $1000 on the market. Plus, we love the minimalist aesthetic. 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 saved 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.
