Rega Brio-R Integrated Amplifier
Rega Brio-R Integrated Amplifier Features Built-In Phonostage and High-End Components: Product of the Year Award-Winning Design Plays Music With Stellar Sound Quality
Rega combines its traditional audio design expertise with excellent engineering in the half-width Brio-R integrated amplifier. With expensive upgrades made to the already excellent audiophile-grade parts, Brio-R offers astounding sonics. We've never heard a compact integrated amp sound quite this good. Add in 50 watts per channel, a spectacular onboard phonostage, sizable toroidal transformer, and substantial power-supply components, and it's no wonder Brio-R scored a Product of the Year Award from TONEAudio as well as critical acclaim from practically every hi-fi press outlet on the planet. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"The Rega Brio-R sets the benchmark and then some. While it's easy for those that regularly hear the world's best (and often most expensive) gear to get excited about great sound, it's truly thrilling to hear this level of sound quality from an amplifier with this price tag."
Rega's Brio-R is loaded with a substantial toroidal transformer, generous power-supply components, and a rugged output stage. Film capacitors are placed in the signal path and at all critical positions within the phonostage. Based around a pair of 150w Sanken Darlington output transistors, this combination forms a complementary emitter follower emulating Class A conditions with thermal stability and lower standing currents in the driver stage. Featuring its own dedicated power supply and separated from the audio circuit, the included remote control doesn't compromise the sonic design of the amplifier. Improved low- and high-current power supplies, coupling, and bypass capacitors also factor into the amazing performance. In addition, the built-in phonostage boasts increased input sensitivity.
"No integrated amplifier that I have heard for under $1,000 has a finer built-in phonostage."
"Start listening, and it's the music itself that grabs your attention, rather than any particular hi-fi virtue. And that, of course, is exactly the way it should be."
