Rega Apollo-R CDP - impressive!

We have an upmarket second system (TEAD Vibe, Hovland Radia, Dali mini monitors). It was fronted by a Pioneer PD-S904 which was definitely good enough. The Pioneer developed an intermittent brain fault so we discussed a replacement with our dealer (Jon at Midland Audio Exchange) who recommended the Rega Apollo-R. We bought it without auditioning it. It is more than good enough. It is attractive, nice to use and seems well made - with a lifetime guarantee. It is sweet sounding; more detailed than the Pioneer; does the PRaT bit well; and the vocals are superb. It is British made which is nice too. Jon says Rega are a delight to deal with. A taste of the high end for less than 600 notes. Very pleased.

We have spent quite a lot of time listening to the Rega and our early impressions are still valid. We have noticed one slightly weird effect - the sound carries much more clearly into adjacent rooms, even though we are playing at what we think is the same volume.

Yep, love mine which I brought pre-loved for the bargain sum of 250.00! It's a delight and also keeps the missus happy as she only likes to play CDs!
