Developed by our engineers the new Ear benefits from a completely new
surface mount PCB layout based on the hugely successful Brio-R amplifier.
Exceptional performance is guaranteed with the convenience of independent
mute, volume control and multiple connectivity options to integrate perfectly
into any users system.
Power supplies & Noise Reduction
The Ear pushes the Brio-R power amplifier circuit concept to a new level
with the use of a low noise fully regulated supply. Noise has also been
kept to a minimum by the use of an external mains transformer. The Ear
exceeds the voltage requirements of IEC 268-15. This along with low output
impedance makes it suitable for studio use as well as a hi-fi headphoneamplifier.
The Ear operates in Class A at normal listening levels.
High Quality Components
The Ear utilises the highest quality components and our engineers experience
to achieve the best sonic performance. Utilising the design ideals of
the cascaded emitter follower output stage with a pair of
complementary Darlington output transistors, along with Polyester film
and Nichicon FG capacitors in critical positions ensures it is our most
advanced performing headphone amplifier to date.
Housed in a compact custom case the Ear is designed to match the current
range of Rega electronics with a matching high gloss front facia.
The new Ear Headphone Amplifier benefits from an all new
extruded aluminium case and new styling giving it more of a family feel
to match its illustrious big brothers.
The Ear simply connects to the tape output of an amplifier
via phono leads, the headphones are plugged into the front panel and there
is a link socket incase you need your tape output sockets for other use.
The new Ear is also available in our new alloy finish.
