Rega Brio-r (2017)
The new 2017 Rega Brio has broken cover and its a beauty! In a gorgeous new design, the improvements to the existing Brio-R are more than just looks. Rega are on a roll of moving forward and improving their products in every aspect and the Brio is no different.
Inside the new case work lie all new circuits, components, a second raw power supply has been added to provide further isolation between output stage and the driver stage/line and phono amplifiers. The power rating has been improved and the much missed headphone socket is back!
The new Brio should be available before Christmas 2016 and we will have a demo unit as soon as they are available.
Brand new case design.
The sleek and minimal look was designed to bring elegance to Rega’s classic style but still harks back to the swooped features hidden away in Rega’s past amplifiers. Combining all these aspects makes this Brio case a unique standpoint amongst the competition.
Key improvements have been made to the circuits. The PCB layout has been fully upgraded to handle higher specifications for all critical parts. A second raw power supply has been added to provide further isolation between output stage and the driver stage/line and phono amplifiers. This improves the isolation between high and low level signal stages of the amplifier. Higher specification MUSES operational amplifiers have been used in the line and phono amplifier.
For convenience, the Brio has the capability to drive standard hi-fi headphones from the internal amplifier. Adding a headphone socket was only possible by finding a way to reduce its impact on the main signal path so it doesn’t disrupt the overall sound quality. We have paid special attention to the switch that deactivates the main speakers.
