THE ALL NEW REGA RP1 TURNTABLE IN COOL GRAY

Designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point. (The Rega RP1 has already won the 2010 What HIFI Awards as The Best Turntable up to 300.)

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 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.

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 !

The all new completely British-made Rega RP1 features:
- 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.
- Ortofon OM5e moving magnet cartridge.
- Rega sound quality at an unrivalled price.

I am becoming an audiophile snob.

After having purchased a Pickering xsv3000 cartridge from The Auction Site, I finally decided to purchase a stylus for it. My musical listening tastes have changed over the years I have now realized. This stylus and cartridge combo presents more of a house party sound ....loud, deep bass, and extreme highs. I now desire a more mellow non fatiguing sound. I want to hear all the details and space and separation on my records. My ears have matured and I want to hear the performance in the sound not just over emphasized bass and treble. I have removed this combo from my turntable. This is not a knock against the stylus more so just an evolution in my expectations of what I expect out of my music presentation.

My personal take

This stylus is too bright in my opinion. It does not replicate the shure sound. Details are lost with this stylus also. I have aligned this cartridge three times after installing this stylus to no avail. Honestly, I am not a fan. I have reinstalled my Shure stylus. I heard so many good things about the SAS stylus but it does not do it for my ears.

Quite satisfying

I purchased this stylus on sale as a replacement for an MF1 cartridge I previously purchased on an auction site. From the off it played with warmth, detail, clarity, and dynamics that I was not expecting. It is getting even better as it breaks in. I can't imagine how the highly-touted 8MZ must sound.

Top Notch Headshell!

I mounted my Stanton 681EEE with a VividLine stylus (which is also amazing! See my review) to this headshell, and they seem like the combination was made for each other. The adjustable azimuth on this headshell made setting up the VividLine stylus much easier and with the precision needed. The lead wires that comes with this headshell are of the utmost quality litz wires, and make a noticeable difference in the playback of your beloved vinyl records. Small things like the finger lift on it make it a joy to use and cue up. The overall quality of this headshell is absolutely top notch and highly recommended for those looking to get the most out of their analog music experience through vinyl!
