Rega Apollo CDP CD Player 

  • Please Note: This product is not available for online purchase. Available in-store only or contact us to order.

The new Apollo CDP's uses the same electronic circuit found in the hugely successful Apollo-R CD player. Re-housed in our latest custom aluminium case to match the new styling of the Brio amplifier, the Apollo utilises Rega's own custom chipset and software offering a truly unique level of performance.

Analogue & digital outputs

Development of the analogue, digital and control domains ensured direct improvements of both analogue and digital outputs making the Apollo  a perfect partner for the Rega Brio amplifier and an ideal ‘CD format’ front-end for the Rega DAC. 

Compact case design

The Apollo is housed in our latest custom half-width case to match the Brio amplifier.
The top loading mechanism offers ease of use and unrivaled reliability.

Digital to analogue conversion

The output amplifier of the Apollo uses the high specification Wolfson WM8742 digital to analogue converter, the same integrated circuit found in the multi-award winning Rega DAC's.

Power supplies

The Apollo uses ‘digital’ power supplies feeding the CD processor, optical block and laser diode amplifier.
This is achieved by using the same high performance, low noise power supplies found in the same location within the Rega reference CD player. This vastly improves the playability, error correction and the ‘inner core’ processing of the digital CD ‘spinner’ part of the Apollo.

Output amplifier

The discrete output amplifier has a THD of 0.0025%, whilst at the same time improving the overall sound quality of the output amplifier.

User interface

The user interface is controlled by using a dedicated display micro-processor, which eases the workload on the main control processors giving an improvement in the control code stability, usability and improved speed of initialisation of the disc being played.

Dedicated CD mini system remote control

A new dedicated CD remote handset is supplied as standard which also has the advantage of Rega amplifier functionality.

Great with Matching Amplifier
23 January 2019  | 

The Apollo CDP doesn’t produce any sound. It converts the cd content into a signal (analogue, optical or digital) which is connected to a separate amplifier. Therefore the resultant sound is reliant on both the quality of this signal and the amplifier to which it is linked.
Mine is linked to the matching analogue Rega Brio and the sound quality is exceptional. Instruments and vocals have great clarity and detail. One feels part of a three dimensional sound, noticing detail not evident on lesser systems.
Very simple to operate, once used to the unusual cd loading mechanism, where the cd is placed on a spindle and held by three spring loaded balls. (It seems to favour right handed placement).
The Apollo is a perfect match for the Brio and revisiting my old cds is a pleasure, hearing them as if for the first time. A word of warning though - the Apollo could seriously increase your cd collection!

High End at an affordable price

Hi everbody,

little needs to be said about the Rega Apollo CDP (Version 2017) CD player - you can find many test results of its precursor Rega Apollo-R on the internet and in hifi magazines. And the Rega Apollo CDP presents itself the same:

It plays DYNAMIC, PRECISE, SPATIAL, EMOTIONAL... what more can you demand?

From my point of view it will be hard to find something better at that price.

Greetings from Germany,


My current hifi system:

SOURCE: Rega Apollo CDP (Version 2017)
AMPLIFIER: Exposure 2010S2D
SPEAKERS: Neat Momentum SX5i
CABLES: Linn K 400 (about 18 years old)
INTERCONNECTS: Linn Analogue Interconnect (also about 18 years old)

PS: The customer service of Analogue Seduction is excellent - thanks to Gary and his team!
