Brand new here, first post.
I have a Rega Brio-R Integrated Amp hooked up to my Pro-ject Debut Carbon turntable and I recently purchased a pair of Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear Wireless headphones.
My question - Is there anyway I can get the sound from my amp to my headphones using a Bluetooth transmitter. I have a MPOW Streambot 2-in-1 I use on other devices and was wondering if I could use this and if so, how do you connect it to the amp?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Hi everyone, bit of newbie here, looking for some guidance and advice from the forum in general, and Rega Brio owners in particularâ€¦
After months of researching and a few hours auditioning, I bit the bullet a few weeks ago and ordered a Rega Brio-R, RP6 w/ 2M Blue, and Monitor Silver 6s. I also managed to pick up an Apollo-R from the SNA classifieds. I'm still waiting on the Silver 6s to arrive, but I've had the rest of the setup about a week and a half. It's my first analog setup in 20 years, and probably my first real HiFI setup ever. All very exciting!
Anyway, I'm concerned that there's something wrong with the Brio-Râ€¦
If I have the CD player plugged into Input 2, but select Input 1 (phono) the amp picks up significant cross-talk from the CD player, even at low-medium volumes. I've tried a different CD player, interconnects, components positioning, power cables, etc and it's still happening. It's loud enough at even 20% volume for me to easily make out the lyrics and music of whatever is playing on Input 2.
I've contacted the (reputable Melbourne) retailer and he assures me that this level of cross talk is normal, but other people I've spoken with tell me it isn't and I should swap it for a new one. I'd really appreciate any advice anyone has (especially Brio owners) before I push harder with the retailer for a replacementâ€¦
Is this normal for amps in general and the Brio-R in particular?
Thanks in advance!
Item : Rega Brio-R Integrated Amplifier ( AS NEW )
Location : Sydney
Price : $750 Firm
Item Condition : Mint - As new
Reason For Selling : Not needed as I am going down the headphone / headphone amp path.
Payment Method : Pickup - cash prefered
Extra Info : I purchased this amp off fellow SNA member John Darko approx 4 months ago. He had only owned it for 6-7 weeks and had put about 50 hours of use on it. Since I have owned it I have only put another 30 hours on it. So all up it has only been used for 80 hours and it is probably not even fully run in yet.
This amp is really in AS NEW condition and still has the protective film on the front cover. It is boxed up in original perfect condition carton with the supplied remote control and power cord.
A search on google will give you all the specs on this unit.
Please don't make any near offers on the asking price of $750. For the condition of this amp $750 is a good saving on RRP.
Call it upgradeitis, the nagging doubt there is always something better or a search for higher purpose but I can't help wondering if my floorstanding Krix Lyrix are the best match for my newly acquired Rega brio-r and Rega DAC. I LOVE my rega's and I used to LOVE and still do my Krix Lyrix speakers (purchased over 10 years ago - since superseeded my "Phoenix"). Should I just stop here
I was fortunate in that I was forced to upgrade my previous amp (a Rotel) when it blew.
However am I imagining it or do I hear the bass and mids being sucked through honey rather than being immediate and clear (I obviously can't speak audiophile) to do the rega's justice? Can the rega drive the Krix? Is there a loudspeaker that would bring me significant improvement in a similar price bracket (~$2k?)
Can someone advise me on (a) whether it's all in my head and I should just be happy with what I have saving myself some hard earned cash or (B) is there floorstanding loudspeaker that would make me happier...?
