Exclusive-The Rega RP1

tonepublications.com
14 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Rega met the budget turntable challenge in 2006 with their entry-level P1 turntable, offering the budding vinyl enthusiast a way to join the Rega camp with a brand new table and Ortofon OM5e cartridge for only $400. While Rega has always been one of the best values going in turntables, inflation and world currency markets have taken their toll everywhere. I remember purchasing my first Planar 3 turntable (back in 1979, without cartridge) for $389. Those were the days.

Rega RP1

What Hi-Fi?
2 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Given Rega 's pedigree at higher prices it's no surprise to see the company delivering such an excellent budget product. At this level it's all about simple, effective engineering: something Rega understands. The RP1 is about as simple as record players get. It has a plain rectangular plinth with three rubber feet.
  • Pros: Easy to use and set-up, fine build
  • Cons: Nothing at this price level

Rega RP1

  • Summary: Den enkle Rega-spilleren har veldig fokusert og tydelig lydbilde - med mer dybde enn de fleste i testen, og overbevisende dypbass. Den mangler kanskje litt av varmen til Project-spilleren, men har finere detaljgjengivelse, og mer luft under tonene. Særlig i diskanten. Sangen "Dele Alle Ord og Tanker" er et eksempel på hvor levende lydbildet blir når vokalharmoniene trer frem i lydbildet, godt støttet av den svært gode dynamiske kontrasten i perkusjonen.

  • Excerpt: Den simple Rega pladespiller har vældig fokuseret og tydeligt lydbillede. Med mere dybde end de fleste i testen og overbevisende dybbas. Den mangler måske lidt af varmen fra Project-grammofonen, men har finere detaljegengivelse og mere luft under tonerne. Særlig i diskanten. “Dele alle ord og tanker” er et eksempel på, hvor levende lydbilledet bliver, når vokalharmonierne træder frem i lydbilledet, godt støttet af den fine dynamiske kontrast i percussion.
  • Pros: Fyldig bas, God dynamisk kontrast
  • Cons: Ingenting til prisen

Rega RP1 - muzikaal meesterstukje

hifi.nl
6 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Rega is zo’n merk waar je al jaren op kunt vertrouwen als het gaat om no-nonsense- apparatuur met een muzikale weergave. Hoewel het merk zeer fraaie versterkers, cd-spelers en zelfs luidsprekers maakt is Rega toch vooral bekend om haar platenspelers.
