Extra Info: Bought brand new 5 years ago from the excellent Carlton Audio Visual. I ran this amplifier primarily with B&W 683 speakers and never had to abuse or push the amplifier to get to loud and uncomfortable volumes. Also recently tried this with some Cerwin Vega D7's and could still rattle windows with lovely crystal clear clarity to boot. Does come with original remote but no longer have manuals or original box that came with purchase. There are some small and light scratches on both the case and glossy front of amplifier but these are not noticeable unless face right up to amplfier and can be easily buffed out.
An overview of the specs inside
The award-winning Rega Brio-R amplifier certainly betrays it's compact size with a large performance of exceptional music reproduction for it's price category. It certainly belies it's power output of 50 watts per channel into 8 ohms or 73 watts per channel into 4 ohms, with an ability to more than competently drive most speakers. Due to it's substantial toroidal transformer, generous power supply components, a rugged output stage the Rega Brio-R justifies it's multi award-winning status. It also has an excellent phono stage with the use of film capacitors at all critical positions within the phono amplifier. It comes housed in a custom cast aluminium half width case.
