Rega RP1 Performance Pack turntable

The supreme build and performance of the Rega RP1 Turntable earned its tag as winner of the What Hi-Fi? Best Turntable up to £300 Awards 2010. Its incredibly reliable sound and high quality parts combine to provide a turntable that offers a lifetime of musical enjoyment.

The Rega RP1 turntable makes use of manual speed changes as opposed to an automatic mechanism to eliminate speed inconsistencies. The money saved on the Rega RP1 is spent brilliantly across the rest of the design with 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.

This Performance Pack Version pushes the performance envelope even further at the price point. Rega have simply replaced the standard fit cartridge, belt and turntable mat with improved versions that yield a noticeable improvement in performance at a relatively modest cost.

This kit can be factory fitted to your RP1 turntable, or can be ordered and fitted by our Stores that stock Rega products at a later date.

The pack includes

- Rega Bias 2 moving magnet cartridge
- Upgraded Drive Belt
- 100% Natural Wool Turntable Mat

A lot of people don't realise that record decks will not normally work straight away with their stereo or home cinema system.

Record decks output at a much lower level than CD players, cassette decks or other audio devices. As a result, if you plug a record deck into an auxillary input on your amplfier, you will hear a distorted, quiet sound.

Back in the '80s, most amplifiers came with a 'Phono' input. This input was built with a phono stage in it - a separate pre-amplifier that boosted and equalised the signal from the record deck so that it sounded perfect.

However, with the decline in the popularity of record decks, most amplifiers now do not come with a 'Phono' input. Instead, if you intend to use a record deck, you must buy a separate phono stage.

Simply plug your record deck into the phono stage, and then use a separate phono lead to connect the phono stage to the auxillary input in your ampllifier.

You can always call us for advice on setting up if you are unsure.
