THE REGA BRIO-R
Unlike mainstream audio manufacturers, High end audio companies like Rega don't change models every year with minor changes just to create excitement. They tend to get it right the first time. Usually, a high-quality integrated amp like the well-reviewed Rega Brio, introduced over 12 years ago - will stick around for many years. So when a new model comes out, it's going to be something special... and there has to be significant changes and improvement.
Enter the all new Rega Brio-R.
The Brio–R embodies all the necessary ingredients for a killer integrated amp: Substantial toroidal transformer, generous power supply components, rugged output stage, the use of film capacitors in the signal path and at all critical positions within the phono amplifier.
Developed by Rega engineers a newly designed 50 wpc Class A amplifier based around a complementary pair of 150w Sanken Darlington output transistors. Newly redesigned power supplies and and improved phono stage give this mighty little amp such a fantastic sound.
Remote control has been added to the Brio-R without compromising the sonic design of the amplifier. This was achieved by keeping the remote circuit separate to the audio circuit and having its own dedicated power supply. There is no direct contact between the micro-controller and the signal path, the micro-controller controls the relays whilst the volume control motor uses DC control voltages.
High quality components
The Brio-R utilizes the highest quality components and Rega's years of experience to achieve the best sonic performance. Ensuring it is the most advanced and feature packed Brio to date.
Improved power supplies
During the Brio-R design process Rega reviewed the circuit and improved the low and high current power supplies, coupling and bypass capacitors. The phono stage has been improved to reflect the current improvements in the Rega Planar turntables, where the input sensitivity has been increased along with a revision of the sub 100Hz part of the phono frequency response.
Custom Case & Design
Housed in a brand new custom case the Brio-R draws on the pedigree of the previous three incarnations of this model. The sonic recipe for the Brio-R embodies the best in traditional audio circuits with excellent engineering practice. Matches cosmetically with the new Rega DAC
