REGA: P3-24, RB301 + Elys 2 turntable, tonearm,+ phono cartridge – test review

Michael Fremmer ….. It’s now been eight years since a Rega P3 turntable passed through my listening room. While the new P3-24 superficially resembles the P3 (and virtually every other Rega ‘table), the company has made some significant changes, including upgrading to the high-quality, low-voltage (24V), electronically adjusted motor used in the more expensive P5, P7, […]

REGA: Blues

Well the new P3-24 finally turned up; fitted with a Goldring 2200 cart. – It’s looking good though how it sounds is anyone’s guess because the tt was shipped without its power supply. And – the arm seems to have been set slightly off parallel with the edges of the plinth. I’m not sure how […]

REGA: P1 record player test review

For a word that first appeared in print only 35 years ago, prequel has a lot of impact—if only in a commercial sense. The television series Smallville has become a staple of American broadcasting. Film producers gambled millions on the chance that audiences would want to know what happened when Batman began. And while moviegoers have turned their backs on […]

REGA: Planar 25 turntable test review

I literally dropped everything when Rega’s new Planar 25 turntable arrived a few weeks ago. I’d heard the ‘table compared with the Planar 3 at designer Roy Gandy’s house when I visited Rega last fall—see “Analog Corner” in the January ’99 Stereophile—and was anxious to audition it in my own system and tell you what I […]

REGA: DAC-R D/A processor test review

Jon Iverson (Stereophile mag) writes: I’ve spent the last month recording songs for a pal’s upcoming album. His act consists of powerful female and male singers, acoustic and electric bass, and acoustic guitars and mandolin. Jay-Z is funding the project, which is destined to transform the entire hip-hop/rap beat-driven pop landscape into an acoustic-music wonderland.Okay, […]

REGA: RP-1 record player test review

Art Dudley (Stereophile) …… I tried to name a high-end audio product that’s been recommended more often than the Rega Planar 3 turntable. I failed. The closest I could come was Rega’s own RB300 tonearm, surely the best-selling perfectionist tonearm of all time. After that came the Rega Planar 2 turntable, a sample of which I owned […]

REGA: Harbeth question

So, I have just finished reading the whole Rega Brio-R thread and I had a few questions. Instead of crapping on someone else’s thread though, I thought I would ask in a separate thread since it is not about the Brio specifically. I currently have a Leben CS300X and a pair of Reynaud Bliss loudspeakers. […]

REGA: DAC-R – test review

Marc Gusew writes: The Rega DAC-R is now available in Australia at $1199 RRP and offers many enhancements and meaningful upgrades over the previous generation Rega DAC ($999 RRP). If you are familiar with the older DAC, you will also be familiar with the DAC-R because it looks virtually the same, with only the front facia […]

REGA: Apollo-R- Inherent Glitch?

This is my second Rega Apollo-R….Lovely CD Player! This example was built around early (ish) 2017. So probably, one of the last batches made. It’s replacement is now the curved looking Apollo (non R). Like the first Apollo-R I had prior, this one also sometimes freezes. Switching the unit off/back on etc the oddity disappears. […]
