Rega 2

Apollo CD

This revolutionary new player will analyse the disc to be played and (rather like the engine management system on a modern car which optimises the engine settings to ambient temperature, engine temperature, fuel quality etc.) will adjust itself to the disc in order to give optimal trouble free reading and great sound quality. This process takes a few short seconds and the resultant musical improvements are well worth the wait.(Pictures show Apollo CD and Brio Amplifier)

Mechanism
A new high quality mechanism has been used which incorporates a three-point mounting ball chuck. This has advantages over the magnetic puck type design. Firstly it presents the disc as flat as is possible to the laser spot directly resulting in improved reading of the information on the disc. Secondly the mass of the puck is lost completely giving the mechanism itself less stress and better acceleration and braking performance.Digital, for the more technically minded!
This revolutionary player has been three years in design and is nothing like any player in specialist Hi Fi today. Rega, together with its design partners have pioneered something new and very special – a highly advanced servo controller which uses the very latest signal processing techniques to ensure that the raw data that is recovered from the disc is of the very highest quality. Because our fully digital servo can use highly advanced algorithms the laser spot is kept in the optimum position for data recovery in terms of focus spot size and tracking position.  Previous chip-sets always made compromises on error correction. Likewise it was possible to have good jog resistance if the music was compromised or better musical performance at the expense of jog resistance. Regas new chip-sets allows optimum musical performance and optimised jog or vibration resistance.
 

The Rega DAC

is a 16/20/24-bit at 32kHz to 192kHz digital to analogue converter incorporating an enhanced version of the Rega designed circuit. Developed to be simple to set up and use, the Rega DAC is designed to optimise performance from any two channel PCM digital audio source such as a CD player PC or streaming device.With the PC/Laptop and MAC now widely accepted as creditable mediums for storing and streaming music. The use of high quality lossless files such as WAV, FLAC and ALAC offer performance through the DAC equal to and in some cases better than red book CD.Housed in a custom aluminium and steel case and boasting a pair of Wolfson DAC IC’s, 5 user selectable digital filters, two isolated Co-axial inputs, two Toslink SPDIF inputs and an isolated USB input. The Rega DAC is designed and engineered to perform way above its class.

The RP3

has been designed and engineered to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point.Excellent build quality, reliability and ease of use combine to make a product which, if used correctly, will offer a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Omitting unnecessary gimmicks allows us to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce records accurately.The RP3 is fitted with a brand new hand assembled RB303 tonearm, precision main bearing and a low vibration low noise 24v motor assembly which is individually hand tuned to its circuit to further reduce vibration.For full details on this brand new product from Rega please click here
