Rega is gearing up for an all out assault on the Hi End with the new Isis Cd player, Osiris amp and P10 turntable...could new speakers be far behind?

They have the new RS series but I guess you mean higher end to go with the Isis etc. The Isis no doubt will be some machine but the cosmetics don't appeal to me at this point.

There's also talk of an Apollo Mk11 along the SE lines. If Rega release that then there will be many disgruntled SE owners around the world (500) who were promised something unique for our money. We will wait and see.

It seems that something above the RS series may be in the offing.

I too am not enamored of the cosmetics of the Isis and have no intention of paying the price...ever. But damn that thing probably sounds fabulous!

An Apollo MkII would likely not share the outstanding casework and other extra goodies that yours has...I would be happy if it had the innards.

It seems something might be happening Art. One on-line store here is selling the Apollo for about $400 less and the Saturn for almost $500 less.

When I get around to taking my amp in I'll ask the dealer what he knows. I hope also to hear a Saturn - but maybe I shouldn't. However, I believe the SE sounds really gorgeous and maybe my next upgrade (someday) will be main speakers.


I think Rega's new offers will have to contend with those new kids on the block too - Leema!

An Apollo II would likely include a digital in, which would peeve a few, but maybe on a standard Apollo platform?
But not as ugly as this Isis.

Man, that Isis is damn ugly. It better sound as good as its price tag. I wish it well though. Rega is in some serious need of competing against the likes of Naim and some others. I am sure Rega is sick of being dubbed, the company that is good, but not quite hi end. I would like to see this new stuff be considered as good as a high end Naim piece. Bring it on Rega. Just put a dress on that CDP, nobody wants to see that thing naked.lol Hey I am shallow, what can I say. :-)

Stereophile said the final products won't look like that. Am I crazy, or is it just everyone else...

Rega brings a non-working prototype to a show. The CD player won't look like that. The integrated will look a little like that. I think two empty black metal boxes with something like 'Next Rega CDP' and 'Next Rega Integrated' written on them with a silver sharpie marker would have been just as effective.

No one's heard them, knows what they'll look like, no specs, and no one knows how much they'll cost. Again, what am I missing here? If you're launching a product, shouldn't you have just a little more to talk about?

Maybe they're hanging out at the bar like LLoyd Christmas to "put out the vibe."

There have been rumours surrounding what's next for Rega for quite sometime. The recent release of a speaker line without a model that even pretends to be in the same league as the R9 just emphasized that much more that they have something up their sleeve...the only thing I can figure is that this is confirmation and to build a sense of anticipation. Who knows...it's all rather odd.

It would take considerable and skillful discussion for a dealer to convince Rega customers that rega is in the $12k space. I'm not sure I could do it - unless they came out with something really quite remarkable.

Very good point Frank. I've always felt a lot of companies have the capability to make stuff well beyond their common price and performance points. I have no doubt that Rega can make something that is very competitive at that price range. The only problems I foresee are does it really make sense for them from a business standpoint, and will the public accept a Rega product in that price range, regardless of performance?

Its kind of like if Sony made an over $100k system. I have no doubt they have the resources and capability to make a system that'll compete with and beat the best products ever made. I don't think it fits their business model, and how many people could be convinced that the same company that makes $10 alam clock radios can make the best sounding stereo ever?

Don't forget guys, that the 12 grand is Aud. As we always seems to get ripped off here, not just by exchange rates, but by profiteering distributors, I think that number will be much lower in US and British currencies.

I have no doubt Rega can make an outstanding cdp and amp, but the reviewers will have to see it that way for their success. I know the Apollo is in a different leaugue, but look at the rave reviews that vitually exploded into the world of hi-fi.

Hmmm, I've seen £5998 bandied about elsewhere. That is a huge amount of money for a Rega product. However, the current thinking in the market place is that it is the luxury goods part of the market which is bucking the credit crunch. In other words, those with money last year still generally have money this year and so can still go for their luxury items. It's the middle market and lower which is suffering hugely because the traditional buyer in that market is suffering from market anxiety, job security worries and 'wait and see' approach to see if they can afford the item in the medium term.

Therefore, this could be a very sensible move on Rega's part. But I must admit that when we were talking with them about the Isis 4 years ago, they were talking about £3k, not £6k...

The governments are desperately trying to stimulate their economies out of the stupor they're in, which is driving up spending. Next year, or year after, they'll have to start paying back all the money and that means heavy taxes one way or another. So people might be buying now, but next year they'll stay clear of the shops because they won't have cash in their pockets. It's bad enough that we could face another recession.

I think you are quite right Frank - our government has put this country into some very serious debt.

People are buying in shopping centres here for sure - but just about everything is on sale most of the time, so the figures don't tell the whole story especially the one of heavilly reduced profits.

I'm scared silly by the situation actually. John Major (ex prime minister) was on telly the other day. Now although he was voted out as one of the most unloved PMs in history he presided over (engineered?) one of the most buoyant and productive periods in history (the 90s) even though he had to go through a gulf war. He mentioned that the UK's deficit level is now £179Bn (that's about $270Bn) and that this is unprecedented. In his day he had brought the level down to some £50Bn thanks to the buoyant markets in the 90s. All that work seems to have been lost. his main concern was that even though we had it pretty good since 1997, the government has not been saving for a rainy day - and the rainy day has arrived...

I am for my sins self employed, in what is left of the heavy engineering industry in the UK. If we make it through the next 18 months, then it may start to get a little better. Till then its a case of survive how you can. The number of engineering projects that have to be done, but can not be, (lack of finance) is scary. At some point something is going to fail rather dramatically. All of this because of a sea of easy credit.

Well they didn't change the design - very unfortunate.
Not for me though. $12000AUD for a cd player - geez not when there's a bathroom and kitchen to be renovated, overseas holidays and another car in the future. If that sort of money is spent on a cdp what sort of system should be matched with it - the mind and bank account boggles.

I love my Saturn - even the price for that makes wives heads spin.

(fingertips rub shirt)
After initial teething problems (boy, what a gloss-over, gotta be honest!) the player has performed flawlessly.
The Highly Regarded Apollo would have been on the menu, had it been offered at what is apparently the new price of 1k$, down from 12 or 13 hundred, same as I paid for the CA player. New MSRP for the CA is about 1700?

The Rega rep (ex-Naim) brought in the Isis for an evaluation. Unfortunately he didn't have the Osiris since it's still being finished. Into a Naim amp, it sounded a bit polite apparently, very smooth and the build quality was exceptional, but a bit lacking in snap. Now this could be because it wasn't being used in balanced mode which we would expect to have a lot more presence, so we're still interested in it, but £6k is a lot to spend.

Oh! And Rega have just announced price reductions here on the Apollo and Saturn - about 15% less. I'm well pleased since it'll mean the Apollo is under £500.

About a month back, I had the Rega Saturn feeding a McIntosh C220.....feeding (first) a McIntosh MC252 amp and then (second) a McIntosh MC352 amp; which through a two week period fed my Jamo C803, Jamo C807 and my new Jamo C809 speakers.

I have to tell you, HolyFriggin'WOW!!

Musical paradise!

The Saturn, the synergy of the Mac C220 and those Mac amps ....these Jamo speakers; breathtaking.

That's my ultimate musical system!!! For my personal tastes and preferences, that is.

I already had owned the C220 (and MC252) a few years ago, but had to sell it during the divorce/speration.

But now, I bought another one!!! As they say......The McIntosh C220 is IN THE HOUSE!!!

Now I'm feverously saving for both the MC252 and MC352 (which will have to be a previously owned purchase).

Will probably take me 10-12 months to save for and buy both. But I'm going Mac.

I already knew the Mac and Wharfedale Opus 2 match was sublime. And I had my thoughts on geting back to that.

But after hearing the synergy between the Mac gear and not only the Wharfedale Opus2, but also the sweet synergy with the Jamo C80 Series. That's it.

Rega Saturn and Apollo........two Mac c220 and the mc252 and mc352....with my Wharfedale Opus and Jamo C80 speakers. Sweet synergy.

That's the system I'm shooting for and planning for.

The Mac 300 is in play, but the Bryston player has my attention, the price has dropped a good bit to something that I will pay.

The mac/Rega combo is nothing to be sneezed at, to be certain, but I like the pages that have been written on the Bryston unit.

I'm with you on the Saturn Nmy, I've been leaving ours on 24/7 with the display off and I have to say the music is sublime. Apart from PRaT and intricate detail, there is a liquid quality to the sound that makes me want to hear music for hours on end. But other things do get in the way.

Nuck I know the Bryston has a great rep and is certainly worth trying, though the one thing I like for longetivity in the Rega's and Naim's is their loading arrangements - much fewer moving parts. Though I haven't had much trouble with disc trays in the past, I have heard of problems from others.

The lower end (high end for me) Cary CDP1 had a disc tray that was so incongruous to the build of the player it wasn't funny - it felt like it belonged to a flimsy cheapie from Kmart. Apart from some blown out bass in the lowest of registers (most likely because of my speaker arrangement) it was a fine sounding player and I can only imagine how good their higher end ones would be.

Nuck, have you given any consideration to using the Apollo as a transport, and going the high-end DAC route instead ? If you are entertaining a computer setup at some point in the future, you'd scratch two itches at once. This doesn't get you to fully balanced, but something to consider perhaps.

Two complete Electrocompaniet systems. One 'cheap', one not. Both very engaging. We were so impressed we're going to stock it! That said, I doubt it'll be a big seller for us. The brand is not well known and the name (to be frank) sounds too different for a lot of people. I also wish the finish - though solid like proverbial brick outhouses - were a little less agricultural.

Still, we'll see how we go with it, but we have been very impressed indeed.

having heard the new CD player. I think I will have to sell the wife.

I am a fan of the Rega sound in general, (two exceptions the carts, and the Mira) but that CD player is awsome. Just pure music, I heard it at a dealer demo, through Naim amps and B&W speakers. The 'competition' was from Class- Naim (Cd3 + psu and 555? with psu). Only there was no competition. Any musical genre played and Rega just let music flow, no Digital nasty, NO grain, everything just sounded superb. It also looks much, much better in the flesh than the photo's suggest. Superb build quality.

If the matching amp is in the same class then Rega have just re written the rule books on where they stand in the hi-fi chain, and will be on top tier.

I have no chance of owning a system that costs as much as something like a toyota avensis or Volvo V50, but for the first time I have heard something that makes me wish I could.

I'll have to take the Layaway path. I should have the Isis paid off and in my home by 2014.

NMT, your dealer should take a Saturn at full value back, then you get the Isis.
Simple, no?
Then pony up the other 4 digits...

Okay Nuck, then I should have it by 2013

Ah, I don't want to give up the Saturn. I love my Saturn.

Screw it. I'll just keep the Saturn.

I am due for a nice bonus soon. Maybe I'll put a portion of it away and save the rest up over the next 10-12 months. Or how ever long it takes.

I don't know, I'm intrigued to hear how the Isis would sound with my C220 and MC252. I wonder if the Isis is more analytical or sterile than the Saturn? I'd hate to lose that nice warmth of the Saturn.

Hell, for that price I may as well save for the MCD 301.

I'd sure hate for my system to no longer play my 70's rock and hard rock music well.

There's a thread about the Isis on Pink Fish...a long read.

It appears that a tubed Isis is on the way!
