Rega

Brio-R Amplifier

The award winning Brio-R embodies all the necessary ingredients to become a hi-fi classic. Housed in our custom half width case, you will find a 73w per channel into a 4 ohms integrated amplifier with a high spec built in phono stage. A unique circuit is built around a substantial toroidal transformer, generous power supply components, a rugged output stage, with the use of film capacitors in the signal path and at all critical positions within the phono amplifier. The performance speaks for itself; control, balance and detail make this amplifier a must on the demo list.

Product Details

New Output Amplifier

Developed by our engineers, a newly designed output amplifier using a low source impedance emitter follower, Class A driver stage. Based around a complementary pair of 150w Sanken Darlington output transistors, this combination forms a complementary emitter follower emulating Class A conditions with good thermal stability and lower standing currents in the driver stage.

High Quality Components

The Brio-R utilises the highest quality components and our engineers' 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.

Remote Control

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.
