The Rega Saturn CD Player brings brilliant performance to the Rega range. Its improvements take sound performance far in advance of the already superior level achieved by the Apollo. In addition to the unique design features already found in the Apollo, the Saturn offers significant enhancements to the power supplies, digital to analogue converter, master clock and transformer. The Rega Saturn is finished to the highest quality using a solid aluminium front panel combined with a custom extruded case and heat sink which both enhance rigidity and appearance.
Features found exclusively in the Rega Saturn:
Two parallel connected Wolfson WM8740 dual differential digital to analogue converters improving the dynamic range and linearity.
The master clock provided by a high stability low jitter crystal oscillator module.
Substantial 60VA toroidal transformer with separate windings for audio, digital & display circuits.
High capacity power supply's utilizing Nichicon fine gold audio grade capacitors & fast rectifier diodes.
In the Rega Saturn the digital to analogue converters utilize solid polymer de-coupling capacitors.
Nichicon fine gold audio grade capacitors by-passed by Evox film capacitors are employed in the signal path, and in the audio sensitive de-coupling positions in the digital to analogue converters.
Post DAC analogue amplifier and filter employ a Cascade pair discrete Class A amplifier using low base spreading resistance transistors.
The Post DAC analogue amplifier and filter is supplied from a low impedance supply, giving a tighter & enhanced bass.
Unique high-tech operating system that optimises itself for each CD
Brand new transport mechanism, with the latest signal processing techniques and servo giving the best data retrieval
Super stable clocking ensuring minimal loss of data before the DAC
Ultra high memory capacity meaning that error correction need not affect sound quality
