Rega Valve ISIS

£7,500.00

Rega’s now legendary head electronics engineer Terry Bateman spent 10 years researching the concept of a CD player using
valves in the output amplifier. Valves have been widely used in musical instrument and recording amplification from the 1950s
to the present day, therefore it made great sense to develop a valve based CD player to match that of the signal chain found in
such applications.
