The RP1 Performance Pack turntable includes the Rega Bias2 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 fitted to the balance weight shaft which ensures the plug and play design of the RP1 remains.
Designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point.
Upgraded 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 Rega's 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.
Plug & Play
Setting up your RP1 takes seconds, push the balance weight all the way to the end stop, this will automatically set the tracking weight to the desired setting for the Rega Bias 2.
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.
The minimalist design of the Rega RP1 perfomance pack and the use of extremely high quality components ensure that this turntable will last for many years.
