Product Information

The Brio has a completely new case to house its improved circuits and parts. It now sits in a fully aluminum two-part case which boosts the Brio’s heat sinking capabilities and improves on Rega’s already solid build quality and reliability. The new Brio has a cleverly integrated headphone socket specially designed to avoid interference with the audio circuit when not in use and as you would expect, a very high specification moving magnet phono stage is built in as standard.

Throughout the design process, the Brio has been meticulously improved in every aspect, from the quality of materials to the manufacturing process, to make this new Brio a step ahead in Rega’s engineering and design for amplifiers.

Brand New Case Design

The sleek and minimal look was designed to bring elegance to Rega’s classic style but still harks back to the swooped features hidden away in Rega’s past amplifiers. Combining all these aspects makes this Brio case a unique standpoint amongst the competition.

Re-Designed Circuit

Key improvements have been made to the circuits. The PCB layout has been fully upgraded to handle higher specifications for all critical parts. A second raw power supply has been added to provide further isolation between output stage and the driver stage/line and phono amplifiers. This improves the isolation between high and low level signal stages of the amplifier. Higher specification MUSES operational amplifiers have been used in the line and phono amplifier.

Headphone Socket

For convenience, the Brio has the capability to drive standard Hi-Fi headphones from the internal amplifier. Adding a headphone socket was only possible by finding a way to reduce its impact on the main signal path so it doesn’t disrupt the overall sound quality. We have paid special attention to the switch that deactivates the main speakers.

Hum or buzz with LS50s and more efficient headphones. Any solution?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2020
  Thanks for the question.
A hum may be created due to multiple causes. I will recommend some likely fixes.
- A ground loop may be present because the speakers AC ground may be different than the amplifiers AC ground. Plug them all into the same outlet or the same circuit, assuming the AC house wiring has good continuity of grounds.
- To verify an AC ground loop use a 3 prong to 2 prong adapter AC plug that has a green wire for the ground. If the hum stops you have confirmed an AC ground. This is a temporary test. Do not operate the LS50 without the AC ground connected to AC outlet.
- If the LS50 are on but not connected to the Cambridge via the RCA cables, do they hum?
- Disconnect all source devices, does it still hum?
- Cable boxes are notorious for creating ground loops. Disconnect your cable box, is it still humming?
