Rega Set Brio 2017 integrated amplifier and Apollo CD player, black

The Set includes:
  • Rega Brio 2017 Integrated Amplifier with Phono MM
  • Rega Apollo CDP, CD Toplader with Remote Control
Description: Rega Brio 2017 Integrated Amplifier with Phono MM

The Brio has a completely new case to house its improved circuits and parts. It now sits in a fully aluminium two-part case which boosts the Brio’s heat sinking capabilities and improves on Rega’s already solid build quality and reliability. The new Brio has a cleverly integrated headphone socket specially designed to avoid interference with the audio circuit when not in use and as you would expect, a very high specification moving magnet phono stage is built in as standard.

Throughout the design process the Brio has been meticulously improved in every aspect, from the quality of materials to the manufacturing process, to make this new Brio a step ahead in Rega’s engineering and design for amplifiers.

Product details

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.

Re-designed circuit.
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.

Headphone Socket.
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.

Technical Specification
  • Input sensitivities for rated output level:
  • Input 1 (phono) input sensitivity = 2.1mV at 47KΩ in parallel with 220pF.
  • Maximum Input 1 (phono) input level = 100mV
  • Input 2-5 (line) input sensitivity = 210mV at 47kΩ
  • Maximum input 2-5 (line) input level = 10.25V
Power outputs at 230/115V supply voltage:
  • 50 Watts RMS both channels driven into the rated load of 8Ω
  • 58 Watts RMS one channel driven into the rated load of 8Ω
  • 73 Watts RMS both channels driven into the rated load of 4Ω
  • 93 Watts RMS one channel driven into the rated load of 4Ω
Continued high level use into 4Ω may cause the case to exceed 40° C above the ambient temperature.

Headphone output:
  • No load = 8V
  • 32Ω = 1.8V
  • 54Ω = 2.6V
  • 300Ω = 5.9V
  • Source impedance = 109Ω 
Power consumption:
195 Watts at 230V/220V/115V/100V into the rated load of 8Ω

Record output level:Record output level (with rated input levels) = 210Mv.
Record output impedance = 470Ω

Frequency response:
Phono 15Hz to 40KHz (-3dB Points) / 27Hz to 20.5KHz (-1dB Points)
RIAA accuracy (100Hz to 10KHz) ± 0.4dB typically better than ± 0.3dB
Line 12Hz (-1dB points) to 43KHz (-3dB points)
Remote control batteries included – 2 x AAA Alkaline.

Fuse ratings:
T2AL 250V - 230V/50Hz and 220V/60Hz
T3.15AL 250V - 115V/60Hz and 100V 50/60Hz

Dimensions:

345mm (D) -inc volume control x 216mm (W) x 78mm (H)

Description: Rega Apollo CDP, CD Toplader with Remote Control

The new Apollo CDP's uses the same electronic circuit found in the hugely successful Apollo-R CD player. Re-housed in our latest custom aluminium case to match the new styling of the Brio amplifier, the Apollo utilises Rega's own custom chipset and software offering a truly unique level of performance.

Analogue & digital outputs

Development of the analogue, digital and control domains ensured direct improvements of both analogue and digital outputs making the Apollo  a perfect partner for the Rega Brio amplifier and an ideal ‘CD format’ front-end for the Rega DAC. 
Compact case design

The Apollo is housed in our latest custom half-width case to match the Brio amplifier. The top loading mechanism offers ease of use and unrivaled reliability.

Digital to analogue conversion

The output amplifier of the Apollo uses the high specification Wolfson WM8742 digital to analogue converter, the same integrated circuit found in the multi-award winning Rega DAC's.

Power supplies

The Apollo uses ‘digital’ power supplies feeding the CD processor, optical block and laser diode amplifier.
This is achieved by using the same high performance, low noise power supplies found in the same location within the Rega reference CD player. This vastly improves the playability, error correction and the ‘inner core’ processing of the digital CD ‘spinner’ part of the Apollo.

Output amplifier

The discrete output amplifier has a THD of 0.0025%, whilst at the same time improving the overall sound quality of the output amplifier.

User interface

The user interface is controlled by using a dedicated display micro-processor, which eases the workload on the main control processors giving an improvement in the control code stability, usability and improved speed of initialisation of the disc being played.
Dedicated CD mini system remote control

A new dedicated CD remote handset is supplied as standard which also has the advantage of Rega amplifier functionality.
  • High Specification Wolfson WM8742 DAC
  • Advanced Output amplifier circuit
  • Advanced Digital power supplies
  • Intelligent user interface
  • Advanced Analogue & Digital outputs
  • CD remote with amplifier functionality
  • Dimensions W 220mm x D 342mm x H 90mm
  • Shelf  height required to operate CD lid fully extended is 170mm
  • NB. Lid will operate comfortably within a shelf height of 150mm without fully extending.
