Rega Elicit-R Amplifier; B&W 702 S2 Speakers (Rosenut)
A Signature Stereo System That Aims For Realistic, World Class Sound Quality In The Home - And Delivers
Rega Amplifier, Rega Turntable, Rega Saturn R CD Player/DAC With B&W Floorstanding Speakers And Lots Of Accessories
Rega and B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) are two of the most distinguished British Hi-Fi companies in existence. Both companies were founded by dynamic visionaries - Rega by Roy Gandy and B&W by John Bowers.
They come together in this Signature 400.2 system in a totally organic and natural way. Whether playing your precious vinyl or a selection from your silver discs the way this system communicates music is truly sublime, from Hendrix to Handel, Coltrane to Carpenter.
The heart of any good system has to be the amplifier, handling inputs on one hand from CD Player and Turntable and on the other outputting amplified signals to the Speakers. It seems such a simple job but every amplifier does it differently and the quality of the amplification can make or break a system’s sound. In this case the Rega Elicit R keeps your music intact and controls the speakers precisely, making the B&W 702 S2’s boogie or soar as required.
The B&W 702 S2 Floorstanding Speakers build on the impressive strengths of their predecessor, the CM10 S2, and takes them to a whole new level in midrange purity, bass dynamics and treble transparency.
The source components complement this system beautifully. The Planar 6 is Rega’s latest turntable and it is as wonderfully built and great sounding as it is understated and classic. The organic sounding Saturn CD Player features Rega’s simple elegant top loading mech and adds the versatility of an in-built DAC. With van den Hul’s liquid sounding The Clearwater speaker cable & D102 Interconnect connecting things, this system has everything going for it and truly represents incredible value for money.
And just to make sure your 'mains power' isn't playing silly buggers with your system, we have included an Isotek Power Board and Power Cables to make sure your system is always performing at it's best
Below are a few more details, including links to full information and pictures for all these great products.
Rega Elicit R Amplifier
The Elicit-R is built to the highest standards and designed to deliver the best possible audio performance whilst remaining simple to use and easy to setup. It also sound warm and detailed with enough stick to drive even difficult speakers to high volumes.
Rega's recent development work in amplifier design circuitry has allowed them to further advance the Elicit-R performance by using new and improved power amplifier circuits (based around the hugely successful Rega Brio-R amplifier). Combined with FET discrete line pre-amplifiers and a programmable stepped attenuator volume control ensuring greater levels of performance and control over the delivery of power. The Elicit-R is supplied with the new Solaris system remote handset offering full control over this and all of the current R range of electronics. Read More>>
Rega Planar 6/Exact
The Planar 6 has been designed and engineered in England by Rega to achieve outstanding performance way beyond the expectations of a product at this price point. It builds upon the strengths of the multi award winning RP6 with a number of worthwhile enhancements designed to make the Planar 6 better engineered and better sounding. This version of the Planar 6 comes with the outstanding Rega Exact Moving Magnet Cartridge.
Excellent build quality, reliability and ease of use combine to make a product which, if used correctly, will offer you a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Omitting unnecessary gimmicks allowed Rega to concentrate the manufacturing costs on the high quality parts necessary to reproduce music accurately. The Planar 6 is fitted with a hand assembled RB330 tonearm, precision main bearing and a low vibration, low noise 24v motor with a NEO electronic power supply hand matched to each individual motor to reduce vibration. The minimalist design of the Rega Planar 6 plus the use of extremely high quality components, ensure that your very precious turntable should last for many years. Read More>>
Rega Saturn R CD Player
Now this is a CD player! It plays single CDs, is a top loader and is totally - well let's say 99.9% - Made In England. This is the second Saturn model and is extremely good. The Saturn-R is deemed a CD-DAC because there has been an enormous amount of time in producing a DAC that is equal to the task and just as importantly, meets the Rega team’s fanatical standards, so there is a high specification transport and independent DAC circuit. Both sections are fully remote controllable via the supplied Solaris remote handset.
The player offers complete flexibility and integration into any system. It features a great sounding Digital To Analogue section with numerous inputs for use with other components. With its top loading transport, every time you play a CD is a sense of occasion not available when pushing a button to open a drawer. We have a lot of very good CD Players, but the Saturn suits the most demanding customer and delivers as close as it comes to analogue sound. Read More>>
