The new Rega Brio 3 is a simple, high performance, integrated amplifier. The design and cost has been concentrated on the highest possible sound quality rather than gadgets, buttons and unnecessary frills often found at this price range.
The output amplifier is built around a pair of Sanken 150w Darlington output transistors. An electronic circuit protects against shorted speakers and reactive loads. The short circuit detects loads of 1.7W or less. The Brio 3 has enough power to deliver 100 watts into a 2W load (not recommended in normal use!).
The power supply uses a generously rated toroidal transformer and 10,000mF smoothing capacitors providing enough current to drive the hardest of loads. If excellent sound quality at a sensible price is your priority then this may be the ideal amplifier for you.
