It's probably the most underrated phono section there is. I think in part, because it was often paired with the first generation Apheta cartridge, which was a notoriously temperamental cartridge -- so Rega had to build an astonishingly good phono section just to get the best out of the cartridge.

If you dismissed this phono section when it was auditioned with the Apheta cartridge, you overlooked a good phono amp.

It is dead silent.

it is the most natural sounding phono section I've personally auditioned. It makes Gram Slee Reflex/elevator sound like a robot orchestra. It makes Ayre P-5xe sound unfocused.

The ability to set the DC resistance allows you to match it to your cartridge -- which is a great feature!
