Rega Apollo R CD Player 2017 - Audio T Recommends

Rega Apollo R CD Player 2017 - Audio T Recommends

With it's slimline aluminium casework styled to match the 2017 Brio - R amplifier, the new Apollo-R features the Wolfson WM8742 DAC as found in the Rega DAC and improved software means that the player is more responsive, with short initialisation times.

Development of the analogue, digital and control domains ensured direct improvements of both analogue and digital outputs making the Apollo a perfect partner for the Rega Brio amplifier and an ideal ‘CD format’ front-end for the Rega DAC.

The Apollo uses ‘digital’ power supplies feeding the CD processor, optical block and laser diode amplifier. This is achieved by using the same high performance, low noise power supplies found in the same location within the Rega reference CD player. This vastly improves the playability, error correction and the ‘inner core’ processing of the digital CD ‘spinner’ part of the Apollo.

The Apollo R cd player encourages you to have a more "hands on" approach to listening to your music, from the moment you switch on and operate the Star Trek Enterprise inspired manual loading lid and pop in your latest disc it draws you in, in a somehow familiar way to those of us who still play vinyl.

The player still takes a second or so to optimize itself before setting off but it is quicker than its predecessor  in this regard although the remote is a little...err.....well basic in comparison.

The player is endowed with a solid soundstage and once run in and warm offers a very detailed and open performance.
