Rega io Amplifier

The new Rega io amplifier arrives mid-August, 2020 and will form a part of the 'System One', soon to be launched by Rega. This will consist of the Planar 1 turntable, the io amplifier & the soon-to-be-released Kyte bookshelf speakers. Perfect for audio enthusiasts starting their hi-fi journey! 

The io amplifier is compact in size allowing it to be used in a variety of systems and delivers a performance well beyond its $849 price point.

As you would expect, there is a high quality built in moving magnet phono stage, two line level inputs, a new remote control handset and a high quality headphone output that is cleverly integrated to deliver optimum performance without compromise.

Key Features

The io uses the same power amplifier and phono stage as its larger brother, the multi-award winning Brio. The io delivers exceptional sound quality in a smaller and more cost effective package. 

The class A/B circuit shares its DNA with the rest of Rega’s amplifiers, and as usual, great care has been taken in component selection. Sanken output transistors and an Alps volume potentiometer and a linear power supply that enables an output of 30 watts per channel into 8 ohms. This amplifier sets a new reference for power, dynamics, rhythm and timing at this price point.

Two line level inputs and a high quality moving magnet phono input are available as sources. There is a headphone output provided on the front of the unit for powering standard hi-fi headphones; this is driven from the power amplifier stage of the unit through relays to avoid signal degradation when headphones are inserted or the product is muted. A new remote handset is included as well. The Rega io is made in England with Rega's lifetime warranty.


The recommended retail price for io is $849.
