Rega’s Record Store Day player
Friday, January 23, 2015

Rega is joining in the annual vinyl jamboree that is Record Store Day by releasing a limited edition RP1 turntable, arm and cartridge with RSD branding and a lush yellow mat. This version of the company’s entry level turntable will be limited to 500 and is available for £250 from 75 retailers in the UK only. Those stores will also be promoting RSD, which falls on April 18th this year.

For a brand that weathered the lean years of vinyl it must be heartening to see record sales growing at the rate they have over the last seven years. In 2008 when the UK Record Store Day started vinyl album sales were just over 75,000, last year they broke the one million barrier. Watch this space for details of  anticipated releases for RSD 15.
