The Rega RP1 Turn Table Arrives! On Demo Now, At Asia Sound Equipment.

The new Rega RP1, pictured here in "Cool Grey" finishing, which is the sample I saw on demo in the Asia Sound Equipment showroom. The RP1 package comes with an Ortofon OM-5e MM cartridge pre installed.

The much anticipated Rega RP1 turn table has arrived, and on demo at Asia Sound Equipment, whose showroom is located at Amcorp Mall.

The new Rega RP1 comes with a few new features, like the latest RB101 tone arm, which is a much more rigid compared to the previous design. The new phenolic platter material looks a whole lot better quality compared to the older MDF laminated design. And lastly, a bearing which is supposed to quieter and smoother. Yet, despite all the changes, the RP1 still has that simplicity looks of the Rega turn table range.

The new entry level table from Rega is so......... good, performance wise, that it has made the previous Rega P2 redundant.

Asia Sound Equipment has thoughtfully kept the last Rega P2 and P1 units on demo next to the new RP1, so that one can verify Rega's performance claims for themselves!

We've been promised a review sample to come soon, which I am really looking forward to experiencing Rega in my system all over again.

For enquiries, please call Asia Sound Equipment, ask for Eddie Tan at 03-79552091.
