Rega’s newest baby is the Aria phono stage, a half-sized component with full sized sound. Rega haven’t cut any corners to deliver a product that promises to extend the capabilities of virtually any vinyl-spinning audio system.
The Aria is a phono amplifier that features dedicated MM / MC phono stages that have their own inputs and pre-amplifier circuitry. It’s all analogue too, with no digital control circuitry. Separate power supplies run each channel and separate sub-power supplies feed each low noise input circuit.
It’s available from mid-July 2013 at $1,799 RRP.
