WHAT HI*FI review
Our Verdict 5 stars
Best stereo amp £400-£600, Awards 2012. Want a musically engrossing amplifier that doesnt cost silly money? This is it.
Agile, rhythmic and detailed sound
excellent moving-magnet phono stage
Rega's long-running Brio has always been a fine budget amplifier, but this latest version is arguably the best one yet.
Its built into a half-width casing, similar to the one used for the companys excellent DAC, and feels immensely solid. The feature list covers the basics: four line-level inputs, a moving-magnet phono stage and a remote control.
Most rivals add at least a headphone output and switchable speaker to that list, but Rega has chosen to keep things simple in the pursuit of better sound.
And one listen to the Brio-R is enough to convince us that the company has achieved that commendable aim.
Agile, musical and rhythmicThe Brio-R is an immensely musical amplifier. It sounds agile and detailed, and sniffs out a rhythm track brilliantly.
Despite a relatively modest output of 50 watts per channel, the Brio-R can get decent volume levels out of most speakers and deliver large-scale dynamic sweeps such as those from Holsts Jupiter with ease.
More than that, though, its the way this amplifier ties together musical strands that really impresses us. Its the kind of product that puts the music, be it Eminem and Rihanna on Love the Way You Lie or The xxs debut set, centre stage.
Start listening, and its the music itself that always grabs your attention, rather than any particular hi-fi virtue. And that, of course, is exactly the way it should be.
Excellent phono stageThe phono stage delivers a great performance too. Its impressively transparent, and consistent in character to the line stages. And that means that its vastly better than what we usually hear or expect at this price point.
