A History of Rega

Since humble beginnings back in 1973 Rega’s initial success was built upon award-winning tonearms and turntables but Rega has been making complete hi-fi systems since the eighties.

Engineering has always been the beating heart of Rega Research, a company obsessed with specialist materials, tolerances and accuracy.

From day one every Rega product has been designed to achieve the best musical performance and deliver a lifetime of musical enjoyment at an affordable price.

To this day, Rega remains a dedicated British manufacturer and now employs over 140 people selling to 46 different countries.


Watch this fascinating short documentary by the multi award winning filmmaker Chris Purcell to find out what make our founder Roy Gandy tick.

We manufacture a vast range of hi-fi products including amplifiers, phono stages, cartridges, CD players, loudspeakers, and a wide range of accessories to name but a few. Rega designs and assembles every product by hand in our custom-built 38,000 square foot facility in the South East of England, using a team of highly trained and highly skilled technicians who take great pride in the work they do.

So confident are we in our ability, Rega offers a lifetime warranty against manufacture defects on every single product we make.
