    My dealer recons Rega have bought a Silicon fabrication facility and are producing their own semiconductors using new materials not previously used. All very hush hush.

    I too was given a Rega secret by 'my dealer', but I can hold my water!

    I'm very curious! I hope Rega sticks to what they do best! (so hopefully no lifestyle products like Naim did with the Muso range :eek:)

    It's been a while since I heard a complete Rega set-up, but the ones I've heard at several HiFi-show I found very engaging.
    (while other, often much more expensive systems sounded more impressive at first I found myself coming back a few times to the Rega demo-room)

    Yes, with some obscure Terry Bateman quip printed within.

    Or, perhaps just the word 'Finally!'

    Amplifier soak test lab (possibly with bullet proof Perspex windows :D).

    Those look like pairs of feck off big 4 or 8Ohm resistors within the yet to be finished panels there. The finished ones further along are fitted with SpeakON and multi-way binding posts, with the last section SpeakON only (with the number of sockets per grouping in this last section being rather interesting).

    Do I win a prize, or does one have to have a TikTok account for that?

    Graystoke4, I am presuming that by "their top TT" you are referring to the Naiad, out of interest have you heard the Naiad turntable to come to your conclusion it is "shocking" ?

    May I ask which dealer, customer or show ?

    Also I think it only fair to point out that Rega did not exhibit at the WAM show.

    Hi Paul, it was me, although I didn’t get it quite right (hotel room, mat, cartridge and phonostage reasons, now fixed I might add) for the most part the sound was very good for the money I spent. You can’t please everyone all of the time!

    I can tell you now that it is the long awaited DD turntable with parallel tracking arm, Valve phono stage and SET mono blocks into horn loaded speakers. It's been a long time coming but I've got my order in.

    Yes, and here are the spy photos of the early prototype P3-DD from last century, seen here during a pit stop at the old Rega proving grounds.

    The last time I heard Rega using mono's was at an Edinburgh show back in the day. System was (iirc) P9 / RB1000 / Exact , Cursa pre and Exon mono's driving R9's. It would be nice to see Rega pushing the boundaries a little more than the System One (good though it is) at Bristol this time round.

    If they build them in the UK and offer their usual lifetime warranty I'll not complain.

    There’s picture on FB of a P1 with wooden surround to celebrate 50 years, can’t seem to link it, but already for for Spanish market.

    I guess the "High End" products will be Naia (already released), new Osiris and maybe some speakers.
    I've seen P1 in various finishes included wood, not surrounded though.
