The Rega Saturn-R

The Saturn-R is a high-quality CD player/Digital analogue converter designed, engineered and assembled by Rega. The Saturn-R is equally as capable when used as a quality CD transport, as an independent DAC or as a combination of the two. Both elements can be controlled via the supplied 'Solaris' remote control handset. A wealth of connectivity options allow for a flexible and convenient experience, while the quality Wolfson WM8742 DAC chipset is capable of replaying your digital tracks to the highest possible resolution, up to and including 192kHz/24-bit, as well offering an asynchronous USB playback experience. The Saturn-R is designed to accompany the Elicit-R integrated amplifier from Rega but will perform as a superior digital source when combined with essentially any quality amplifier on the market today.
