kemela now has all the new Rega RX loudspeakers for demo. The new walnut finish is very attractive. They combine the "Zero Rear Reflection" tweeter developed for the previous RS series with a new doped mid-range driver and powerful bass drivers in a more substantial cabinet with superb real wood veneer finishes. The "ZRR" tweeter greatly enhances clarity of the high frequencies by eliminating unwanted internally reflected sound waves. Bass drivers have multi-layer voice coils that are in effect part of the electrical design of the cross-over and are incorporated into carefully designed cabinets which include subtle internal design features such as comb filters and the use of long haired wool. Because Rega speakers use a minimalist cross-over design for best bass timing and maximum dynamics, they are popular with musicians who are used to hearing how real instruments sound in live performance.
The compact RX3 loudspeaker competes very favorably with bookshelf models at the same price while offering more bass and saving on the cost of a stand.
Over the 40 years that Rega has been in the industry, it has built a reputation for musically engaging stand-out products that are admired by a loyal fan base. Rega Research, like some of kemela's other specialized brands, has a different product development philosophy from those that are driven by the application notes for a new IC, new buzz words, being "best", and the rush to be first to market.
Rega likes to release new products that address fundamental issues and further the art of sound reproduction paying attention to approaches which are most cost effective and durable. It is over 30 years ago that Rega built the first one-piece cast tone-arm, found in all Rega, and many other manufacturer's, turntables throughout the world.
Rega's systematic product development approach centers around enlightened, creative, and innovative engineering throughout the product as a whole to deliver maximum sound value at the difference price points. This technological hierarchy is found progressively through the Planar and RP series turntables, the speakers, and the electronics.
We are happy to demonstrate complete analog and digtal sound systems built exclusively with Rega components; perhaps the only company left that does it all from cartridge to speaker. The popular full-bodied Brio, the inciteful Elex-R, and powerful Elicit-R integrated amplifiers all have built-in phono stages. While the DAC-R, together with the Apollo-R and Saturn-R CD players cover all your digital needs. These products all work synergistically with each other in great sounding systems across a range of price points. The Isis, Osiris and Ios that form Rega's highly rated reference line sonically outperform many other far more costly products.
All Rega products are made in the UK using local suppliers where possible.
Receiving outstanding reviews is only part of the story: the strength of Rega products is reflected in the growth of the company and acknowledgement it has received from outside the HiFi industry.
kemela is a Rega Reference dealer covering Atlanta and the Southeast with a comprehensive demonstration range of turntables, loudspeakers, and electronics including the Isis and Osiris. We keep many items in stock and offer after sales service such as installing upgrades, new loudspeaker drivers, and cartridges.
