Rega Saturn Mk3 CD player and DAC

Rega Saturn Mk3 CD player with built in DAC.


What we Say:

The Brand new Rega Saturn Mk3 CD DAC is a high quality CD player and DAC. It sits above the Apollo in the Rega range.  The Saturn Mk3 is a CD transport and DAC in one full width box. In addition to this it will take in and decode external digital signals. The Saturn Mk3 is minimalist in approach with basic functions on the front panel along with a display. On the rear the Saturn-R has analogue output on single ended RCA connectors. Because of the digital inputs the Saturn-R is a flexible source component.

The top loading mechanism is simple to use. It comes complete with a remote control handset. The Rega Saturn-R is guaranteed to get the best out of your CD collection and other digital sources.

What they say:


The new Saturn MK3 is re-housed in our very latest case designed to match the rest of the Rega range. The Saturn MK3 CD-DAC player offers complete flexibility and integration into any audio system. Essentially two products in one, the Saturn MK3 houses an independent DAC circuit and a high specification CD transport. Both sections are fully remote controllable via the supplied Solaris remote handset.




Digital mastered

You will find plenty of connectivity options, up to and including 24bit-192 kHz. The Saturn MK3 has two optical inputs, two Co-Axial inputs, a fully asynchronous USB and an added ‘direct’ digital output from the CD playback section. This ensures the Saturn MK3 integrates perfectly into any system and provides the perfect partner for the forthcoming Rega Elicit MK5 integrated amplifier.

If the Saturn MK3 was ‘only’ a CD player, it would still be superb. In a world of slow loading, graunchy ROM mechanisms, the top loading, fast reading, utterly silent Rega feels like a bespoke and entirely ‘Hi-Fi’ experience. It then gives a sonic performance that matches that experience perfectly.
