Rega Aethos - 5-star Stereo Amplifier
Power and musicality for a sound like no other
A brand new outer case designed specifically for the Aethos. Employing four 160 W, 16 Amp output transistors per channel, the Aethos gives 156 W per channel into 6 Ω. Built with a dual mono design using a custom wound toroidal transformer and regulated supplies for the sensitive amplification and driver stages. The pre-amplifier stage uses class-A discrete circuitry throughout. The Aethos is a no compromise product with one goal, to deliver your music as faithfully as possible. The Aethos has been built to Rega’s high standards of reliability and quality to ensure many years of musical enjoyment.
Innovation through design
Rega’s time, effort & money have been spent on developing the circuit and build, utilizing the highest specification of components throughout. As part of the design, Rega have included useful features such as the switchable direct input and preamplifier output, to enable the Aethos amplifier to be used in a wide combination of systems. The headphone socket has been integrated such that the speaker switching is performed by the output mute relay as so not to obstruct the signal path and degrade the sound quality.
Rega took the concepts of design as the foundation of the technologies in the Elex-R and Elicit-R and ran wild. A 125watt dual mono design with features such as fully discrete FET based line amplifier, polypropylene capacitors throughout the signal path, K-Power reservoir capacitors, power amplifier regulated supply and a high current output stage comprising of four 160w Sanken output transistors per channel.
