Rega has three purpose built tonearm manufacturing departments. One area is dedicated to the production of the RB110 tonearm used on the multi-award winning Planar 1 turntable Another makes the RB220, for the Planar 2. The third produciton area assembles the RB330, RB808 & RB2000. Every tonearm we build is hand assembled to the tightest tolerance using Rega designed tools and jigs.These measures ensure the highest quality and accuracy throughout each and every assembly.

Regaには3つトーンアームをカスタムで生産する部署があります。最初の部署は多くのアワードを受賞したPlanar1ターンテーブルに搭載されているRB110のトーンアームだけを製造しています。次の部署はPlanar 2用RB220を製造しています。3番目の部署はRB330、RB808とRB2000を製造しています。私たちが製造しているトーンアームは、Regaが独自設計をした金型と治具によってつくられた、高い硬度を持つアームで、祝連工によって、1台ずつ組み立てられています。これにより、全ての組み立て工程を通じて最高の品質と正確性を確保しています。

High-end turntable production – RP8 & RP10 Turntables

The new skeletal range of turntables are the culmination of many years of development work taking Rega’s design philosophy further than ever before. A highly skilled team work to the highest level hand assembling and testing each unit in a custom designed department. These products are some of our most labour intensive with each model being built over a two day period to allow for curing times and to ensure our strict quality control demands are met.

RP1 turntable production – RP1 Turntable and RB101 tonearm.

Current demand requires a skilled team of 8 people to build a minimum of 120 units every single day.The same team also make the same quantity of RB101 tonearm. This high level of demand, required a huge investment from Rega to build a new department to house production on this scale.The success of this product has continued since launch and the simple set up of this plug & play design is an easy step back in to the world of vinyl for many users.The only thing entry level about this handmade turntable is the price.

Electronic production Area –  Amplifiers, CD players, DAC’s & Phono stages.

Our electronic production area is our fastest growing department, building our broadest range of products. The success of the DAC and  Brio-R ensured the introduction of many new groundbreaking ‘R’ range electronics, all of which perfectly complement any system at any price. Every amplifier is flash tested for safety,soak tested for one hour and the white noise tested for a further fifteen minutes. Finally all buttons and remote functions are manually operated to test for functionality before a thorough clean before inspection and packing.

Moving Coil Cartridge

Including curing times, it takes three days to build each of our Apheta moving coil cartridges.
Meticulously hand assembled using 3D microscopes, each iron cross has the coils wound by hand on our purpose built winding jig. Each process takes extreme levels of concentration and skill and only a handful of people ever achieve the required dexterity to successfully build such a complex assembly.

By October 2013 it became essential to bring many previously outsourced smaller jobs back in house. Another brand new department was constructed to house over £200,000 worth of automated production equipment. This essential machinery covers multiple jobs from coil winding, stripping, tinning, crimping and soldering. This decision gave us back the control we needed over both quality and quantity and directly improved our production and delivery times. This ever growing department is a key part of Rega’s recent growth and continued success.

High-End Electronics production ‘The Reference range’

The ‘Reference range’ is the highest level of performance achievable from Rega electronics. Unlike any other department, each product is built one at a time from start to finish by the same person. Every part is bespoke and all the casework is machined from solid aluminum billets. (The Osiris amplifier weighs in at hefty 38 Kg when packed).Once built, the owners manual is serial numbered and signed by the technician who built and tested the unit prior to being carefully packed in an Egyptian cotton sleeve before boxing.

‘Reference シリーズ’はRegaの最高峰のシリーズであり、音質を含め、最も高いレベルに位置付けられます。他の部署と異なり、1台を1人の熟練工が最初から最後まで組み立てていきます。全てのパーツは受注にて生産され、アルミパーツは、その原材料からマシーン加工で削り出されます。( アンプ: Osirisは、梱包材を入れると38 kgにもなります。)組み上げられると、取説には、本体シリアル番号と製品を組み上げ、試験を実施し、合格を出した熟練工のサインが記載されます。それぞれの製品は、エジプト綿の袋にくるまれ、梱包されます。
