Description

The brand new Rega IO integrated amplifier is designed for the less fortunate but demanding music lover who wants to experience the "Rega sound". It is easy to use and offers few features, but the essentials!

REGA IO: CHASSIS

The Rega IO amp is similar in size and look to the Rega Brio integrated amplifier.

On the front panel, there is a volume potentiometer, a source selector, a headphone output (3.5mm jack) and an on/off push button.

The back of the device is also sober. It offers 3 analogue inputs with 1 MM phono input and speaker output. These terminal blocks accept bare wire, forks or bananas.

The MM phono stage (moving magnet) is really well designed and offers great performances for an amplifier of this range. Note also that the headphone output is really well designed too in order to provide excellent performance with good Hi-Fi headphones.

The ergonomics are there and Rega offers a tiny remote control.

REGA IO: CIRCUIT AND POWER SUPPLY

The Rega IO is equipped with the same power stage and phono stage as its big brother: the Rega Brio! What is the difference?

Its power supply is more basic and does not allow for a power higher than 30 W at 8 ohms.

REGA IO: TEST AND LISTENING

The limited number of inputs and a more economical cabinet allowed an audiophile amplifier made in the UK at an affordable price. I think this is certainly the most affordable Hi-Fi amplifier made in the UK!

Since the very first notes, no doubt, it is a Rega product! We find the spontaneity and the natural swing of the Rega Brio. The transparency and detail are at the same level.

The treble and the mid-range are references in this category. The voices are present and well tuned. We just notice that the bass is shorter and the global sound level is lower than for the Rega Brio.

Associated to Hi-Fi speakers having an equal or higher than 89 dB restitution, we obtained excellent results with the Focal Chora 806 bookshelf speakers and the Fyne Audio F303 tower speakers.

Special mention to the phono input that fully express itself with a Rega Planar 1 Performance turntable or Planar 2 Performance turntable. It does not have to blush to be associated with a Rega Planar 3 turntable with Elys 2!

The Rega IO integrated amplifier offers an outstanding quality/price/music ratio! Highly recommended!

Top ampli made in UK

Génial ce petit ampli ! Grâce à son alimentation performante, les 30w sont amplement suffisant pour driver mes colonnes Dali Oberon 5 et monter le volume dans une pièce de 20 m2. Raccordé à mon streamer et ma platine Rega Planar 2, il me permet de profiter à la fois de mes vinyles et de la musique dématérialisée. Pour ceux qui privilégient la qualité du son et n'ont pas besoin de beaucoup d'entrées, je conseille vivement !
