22nd October Rega Planar 10 Event at Martins Hi-Fi
Oct 9, 2019
Featuring the Planar 10, Aethos amp & Aura Reference Phonostage
Many of you who have visited the shop in recent years will be aware of the presence of the fantastic amplifiers and turntables that Rega has brought to the market. They have become a favourite for our demonstrations and many of you have already invested in the brand. In continued support of this esteemed British company, we will be hosting an event on the 22nd of October whereby Rega will be demonstrating some of their newest and greatest components yet.
Firstly a brand new ‘high end’ turntable; the new ‘Planar 10’, which supersedes the excellent ‘RP 10’ has been developed using techniques and designs derived from Rega’s very limited and eminent ‘Naiad’ Turntable. Whilst only just released to this world it is already picking up brilliant reviews where its output has been likened to ‘master tape resolution’ and more generally described as a ‘truly exceptional turntable’, to say we are excited would be an understatement.
Secondly, and with the call amongst fans for Rega to produce an Amplifier that sits somewhere between the sublime ‘Elicit-R’ and all-out Heroic Osiris; the new Atheos is added to the Reference range. Whilst information is currently limited, we know that it is of dual-mono design, will be rated at 125w at 8 Ohm, employing four 16A output transistors per channel and is a no-compromise musical powerhouse design. We can’t wait to hear it.
Thirdly, the incredibly well regarded Aura Reference Phono stage will be coupled with this system to give a full sense of rega’s current sonic prowess. It has recently been awarded a 5 Star by ‘What HIFI’ whilst already gaining huge respect from ‘the ear’ and ‘HIFI Choice’ earlier in the year.
As always all are welcome, however, if you wish to attend this event please reply or call the shop to book from one of our limited slots.Read more Articles
