The Rega Brio Integrated Amplifier
The Rega Brio Stereo Integrated Amplifier has an entirely new case to house its improved circuits and parts. It now sits in an aluminium case with a steel base which boosts the Brio’s heat-sinking capabilities and improves Rega’s already solid build quality and reliability. The new Brio has a cleverly integrated headphone socket specially designed to avoid interference with the audio circuit when not in use and as you would expect, a very high-specification moving magnet phono stage is built in as standard.
KEY FEATURES of the Rega Brio Stereo Integrated Amplifier

A dynamic masterclass
Throughout the design process, the Brio has been meticulously improved in every aspect, from the quality of materials to the manufacturing process, to make this new Brio a step ahead in Rega’s engineering and design for amplifiers.
Key improvements have been made to the circuits. The PCB layout has been fully upgraded to handle higher specifications for all critical parts. A second raw power supply has been added to provide further isolation between the output stage and the driver stage/line and phono amplifiers. This improves the isolation between the high and low-level signal stages of the amplifier. Higher specification MUSES operational amplifiers have been used in the line and phono amplifier.
BRAND NEW CASE DESIGN
The sleek and minimal look was designed to bring elegance to Rega’s classic style but still harks back to the swooped features hidden away in Rega’s past amplifiers. Combining all these aspects makes this Brio case a unique standpoint amongst the competition.
For convenience, the Brio has the capability to drive standard hi-fi headphones from the internal amplifier. Adding a headphone socket was only possible by reducing its impact on the main signal path so it doesn’t disrupt the overall sound quality. We have paid special attention to the switch that deactivates the main speakers.

I was looking for a good Class A sounding amp for my Dynaudio Audience bookshelf speakers. Hifimart recommended Rega Brio-R. I carried the speakers to their demo room and in the first 10 minutes I knew I had found the right amp. This amp should be on your listening list if you have the budget. Although this amp is rated only 50 watts per channel it has excellent control on the power hungry Dynaudio speakers.

I’ve purchased this small compact amp few days back to replace old Denon AVR 1612 for the sole purpose of stereo sound reproduction. I’m a happy customer for mainly customer service provided throughout the process. Honestly saying it’s a good amp but I’m not simply blown away with the sound quality. I could have spent little more for a better amp. Only down side with HiFiMART is that once purchased it can’t be exchanged. If you are first time buyer it’s a good choice, but if upgrading then go for a better upgrade. My problem is that the part of country I’m living, it’s not possible to take auditions to choose from. Anyway I’m a returning customer of HiFiMART and will continue to do so.

If you listen to vinyls and have a analog setup then this is the Amp you should buy.. It’s a no brainer!
