REGA BRIO 3 INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER
With only two knobs and a power button and for only a small amount of
cash, the Rega Brio 3 is a no-brainer. It's so simple to use, adroitly
musical and ambidextrous and comes complete with perhaps the best MM
phono preamp in its class. That's why the Rega Brio 3 is a can't go
wrong (CGW) product. That's why the Rega Brio 3 amp has received very
special awards, such as Stereophile Recommended Component and Positive
Feedback Online Writer's Choice Award.
Rather than having unnecessary gadgets and frills usually found on
products in this price range, the Brio 3 utilizes the highest quality
components to achieve the best possible sound quality.
The 49wpc output amplifier is built around a pair of Sanken 150w
Darlington output transistors and an electronic circuit that protects
against shorted speakers and reactive loads of 1.7 ohms or less. The
power supply uses a new generously rated toroidal transformer and
10,000µF smoothing capacitors that provide enough current to drive the
hardest of loads.
no shortage of prodigiously talented amplifiers around at this sort of
money. Rega has an enviable reputation at the more elevated
price-points, but down at this sort of real-world budget the competition
Fortunately, the Brio 3 has the tools to fight its
corner. It's packing a specification (50 watts per channel, phono stage,
tape loop, three other line-level inputs on the plus side, no remote
and no switching for a second pair of speakers on the negative) that
puts it right in the thick of its competitors. Build quality is
substantial, and there's even a gesture towards a design feature in the
Most importantly, the Rega is a considered,
articulate listen. Not many amps at this sort of money can unravel the
complexities of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's The Return of the 5000lb Man,
but the Brio 3 unfussily establishes a convincing soundstage. Cohesion
and focus are first-rate, and the Rega does a fine job with high
frequencies – they shine when they should, but never spill into
A more straightforward recording like Joni Mitchell's Both Sides, Now sounds natural and engaging, the vocal plaintive and fluent thanks to the Rega's powers of resolution.
You won't annoy the neighbors Reservations
come only at the bottom of the frequency range. The bass the Brio 3
serves up is speedy and disciplined, but it carries less weight than is
ideal and can sound a little impoverished next to some.
Those who need an amp to shift enough air
to bait the neighbours may want to look elsewhere. Everyone else should
give the Rega Brio 3 an extended audition – as an introduction to the
brand, it's ideal.
