I'm sure you'll have already seen the many glowing reviews of this "entry level" Rega amp. I certainly agree with them - it sounds awesome, and is (unsurprisingly) a great partner for my Planar 2 deck.It's also paired with an Azur 851N from a price bracket or two higher, and performs brilliantly with that too. There's tons of detail, and for anyone with a 'normal' sized room you really don't need to worry about the quoted output wattage - it drives at a good volume without any signs of strain or stress.There's a real flow and dancing quality to the sound which is a delight.Why only 4 stars then? The volume control is infuriating! It's massively over-sensitive - at sensible listening volumes for a smaller room it's barely off the zero mark, and the smallest of adjustments makes a huge difference in output.Listening quietly at night is out of the question, it's daytime volumes or silence... The same is true no matter what source I connect. It's made worse by the remote, which can only adjust the volume in large increments.If you love to blast your music out and/or live in a detached house then great - but if you're in a flat and/or aren't a complete volume monster then this is a serious limitation. Such a shame, as it's an annoyance every time I use it, and it's otherwise pretty much perfect.
