Bottom Line:   
this is a good player in the midrange spectra.
I had it whith a H/K 1.0 Signatur preamp and Rotel`s 991
This was a winning combination.Because the H/K is a bit hard and the Rega is "analog".
But when i connected it too The Classe` ssp-25 it did´nt work at all .It all got two "smooth" It´s like a madress arround the spekers. So in a cheap system aprox 2500-5000$
It`s a five star
whith a more exlucive system it`s a three star over all rating

Bottom Line:   
Visiting my dealer for a new rega planet, I decided to give the Jupiter/Io a listen. Since this combination is double the price of a Planet, I was curious if this difference was noticible. Well, it was. Allthough the Planet is without a doubt the best CD-player in its pricerange, the Jupiter/Io is a class of its own. It was love at first sight and needles to say I bought the miracle couple.

My system contains Rega Mira amplification and Infinity Overture 3 speakers (which, because of the build-in 300 Watts active subwoofers, do not need a whole lot of power from an amplifier. In fact, compared to Rega's Cursa/Maia pre/poweramplifier, Mira sounded just about the same.)
Rega's interlink proves to be a very affordable interlink worthy of my system.

Excellent from the bottom to the up end, very natural sound, lots of rhythm, communicative above all. No way to get your money better spent. What else ?

Bottom Line:   
You liked the Planet, you will love the Jupiter & Io. No doubt that the Planet is an excellent CD Player. Yet, Rega's new CD player goes much further. The sound is really great : full of life, low frequency are more present than with the Planet, high frequency are more subtle, the articulation is marvellous. The top CD-Player for those who usually don't appreciate numerical sound ! Although more expensive than the Planet, the Jupiter & Io is really good-value.
My system : Sugdgen, Spendor FL6, Mogami & Rega links.

whats your opinion on Rega Apollo vs Jupiter?

I am trying to decide on whether to pay 850.00 for a used (very little hours) Jupiter or buy a new Apollo for 995.00 with warranty. Has anybody listened/compared the two? Thanks, ScottRead More »

Rega Jupiter or Arcam CD23

I am looking to upgrade from a Nad541i to a bit more high-end cdp. I've been reading and these two seem to get consistently very possitive reviews and they are within my price range. Any opinions on these would be appreciated.Read More »
