The artwork on the Rega RP1 turntable has been designed by iconic Sheffield artist, Pete Mckee, most well-known for his work with Oasis, Teenage Cancer Trust, Warp Films and Arctic Monkeys. The turntable will go on sale in Record Store Day participating stores and Rega dealers on Saturday 16th April. Only 500 RP1s with the ‘Club Rega’ design have been made, making it a very limited and much-desired collector’s item.

Pete McKee, artist and designer of 'Club Rega' said - "As an owner of a Rega turntable I was extremely honoured to be asked to create a piece of artwork to adorn a Limited Edition version of their beautiful RP1 deck. The picture is a homage to the sweaty Beat Clubs of the 60's where the 7" single was king. Sweat dripping from the ceiling, the pulse of imported R&B pounding from the speakers and kids dancing their socks off all night. The association with Rega and Record Store Day is a brilliant marriage, I've been fortunate enough to spend my formative working life employed in various record shops in Sheffield and second hand vinyl stores, those days were the best of my working life, discovering great music on a daily basis and expanding my vinyl collection immensely at the expense of my weekly wage packet."

The 2016 RSD turntable is based on the Rega RP1 turntable that makes use of manual speed change as opposed to an automatic mechanism to eliminate speed inconsistencies. The Rega RP1 design has a great range of hardware included such as the new hand assembled RB101 tonearm which is a simplified version of Rega's RB300.

The Rega RP1 turntable also includes precision main bearing, phenolic resin platter and a high quality low vibration motor which is normally used on turntable's costing two or three times the amount so you get great value for money.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
