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. Rest assured the only thing entry level about the RP1 is the price!
Included in the Performance Pack:
Reference drive belt
Rega Bias 2 MM cartridge
100% wool mat from the P7
Dimensions: 17.5" x 4.5" x 15"
Weight: 9.2 lbs
The Performance Pack is designed for use with the RP1 turntable and includes the Rega Bias 2 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 enclosed in the cartridge pack which ensures the plug and play design of the RP1 remains, along with a cartridge alignment protractor for use when fitting the cartridge.
Upgrade drive belt
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.
Bias 2 cartridge
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 Regas 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 fibres than synthetic man made material directly improves coupling between the phenolic resin platter and the vinyl LP.

Brand new Rega RB101 tonearm.
Precision main bearing and sub-platter assembly.
High quailty low vibration motor.
All new Phenolic resin flywheel effect platter for excellent speed stability.
Rega sound quality at an unrivalled price.
“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!”

“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
"This is the best place to start for audiophile sound at a modest price."
