The first Rega product was the futuristic looking planet turntable which despite now being over 45 years old still looks great.

The decks have continued to improve incrementally ever since. The original decks had an arm bought in from Acos but now the Rega offering is a full system that is made entirely in house with the only exception being the Carbon cartridge.

Rega Planar 3 and RB300.

The most iconic product for Rega must be the Planar 3 and RB300 tonearm. This model has sold in huge numbers throughout the world and the latest Planar 3 continues to do so. A true Hi-Fi giant or a product.

New Planar 3 with RB330

Although it looks similar virtually every component in the deck has been improved. Original decks still sound good and are perfectly serviceable. They can even be fitted with the latest 24V motor kit!

The Rega products offer great value for money, longevity and a real zest for getting to the heart of the music.   Despite being better known for relatively inexpensive turntables don’t let this fool you. Rega manufacture products to satisfy the most ardent music lover and audiophile.

Naiad and Rega Reference

The Naiad started off as an R&D project with no firm plans to make more than a couple of units. Whilst very limited numbers of Naiad have been made many ideas that were formulated in the R&D process have been used in the development of the latest range of decks.

Sempre Audio

The Skeletal design of the Naiad first showed up in the RP10. The outer section was removable with the only reason for inclusion being to support the lid and give the user a choice of which appearance they preferred.

The design was then refined further on the latest Planar 10 with the outer being removed completely due to the performance improvement it brings.

DNA Audio are delighted to be a Rega reference dealer and have been since we opened. We carry the Planar 10 deck, Aura Phono stage and Isis CD player.

Rega Electronics

Rega launched their first electronics products in 1990. The Elicit and Elex amplifiers were born. Both featured a clamshell aluminium casing and these two model names are still in use to this day. These two products were followed by the Brio which looks very similar to the Elex but in a shallower case and with a green logo.

Original Elex from 1990.

The modern amplifiers still continue to be designed primarily by Terry Bateman and build on the strengths of the originals. The current lineup starts with the diminutive Rega IO. The brief for IO was to aim for half the price of a Brio so it was given half the name of the Brio. The Brio, Elex and Elicit follow. Then the range moves up to Aethos and the Reference Osiris.

Aethos is the latest amp from the Rega stable and offers superb performance and also the design with the scooped out casing to reveal the heatsinks is a new departure.

Rega Planet CD player

The Planet arrived in Spring 1997. Rega had held back on CD development due to the reliance they would have on large companies who could withdraw parts at short notice. Once they had worked out an agreement with a big supplier to prevent this Terry designed the Planet.

It was a top loading design to make it more reliable and also to make playing discs a more tactile experience. All Rega CD players to this date still use a top loading mechanism.

The current CD player range has three models, Apollo, Saturn and Isis.

Rega Loudspeakers.

The Ela was their first loudspeaker. Initially it was made in Denmark but eventually production moved to the UK.

The Ela was a great sounding speaker and offered real value for money. It also wasn’t a difficult load to drive so any reasonable amplifier could get it to really sing.

Whilst Rega still make a full range of loudspeakers it is fair to say they are not the core products . Do not underestimate them though, they have speed and timing and work in real rooms. Models such as the RX3 have sideways firing bass drivers  so bass response can be tuned to your room by placing these either on the inside or outside.
