Rega readies ELEX MK4 super-integrated amplifier

  • The UK’s Rega has this week announced the discontinuation of its mid-tier Elex-R integrated amplifier, to be replaced by the all-new ELEX MK4 super-integrated. What’s a super-integrated? That’s Darko.Audio terminology for any integrated amplifier that features more than one additional feature e.g. DAC and network streamer or DAC and phono stage.

    The new ELEX MK4 offers:

    💥 brand new casework

    💥 an improved circuit layout for 72wpc into 8 Ohms of Class A/B loudspeaker drive

    💥 TOSLINK and coaxial digital inputs that feed an internal Wolfson-based DAC circuit whose power supply rails are galvanically isolated from the analogue section’s

    💥 an MM phono stage with dual-stage RIAA curve correction

    💥 a 6.4mm headphone output

    In other words: many bangs for your buck.

    Price? £1199.
