Following on from the Rega Brio-R and the Rega Elicit-R Amplifiers Rega have now introduced the new Elex-R Intergrated Amplifier.
The Elex-R has been designed to offer exceptional performance for the money. It has an array of inputs including a very high quality moving magnet phono stage and pre amplifier out for the addition of an external power amplifier, sub woofer, etc.
However to achieve the highest quality signal path Rega have omitted superfluos gadgets such as tone controls and headphone output. (If using headphones on an amplifier of this quality the amplifier deserves the addition of an extrenal headphone amplifier such as the Rega Ear 2012 - See below).
On listening to the Elex-R we have found it to be powerful (72.5 watts into 8 Ohms) and extremely controlled. The mid range is very open and there is no hint of hardness on the top end.
The Elex-R has a similar character to it's baby brother the Brio-R but takes the musical experience to the next level.
