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.


Reviewed on

There's 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 is feral.

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 shaped fascia.

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 hardness.

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.
