Is the Rega ISIS worth it?
In the 1970s, Rega became famous for their high quality turntables. Since then, their reputation for quality has only increased. Now, they are surpassing themselves with the Rega ISIS. The Rega ISIS is a CD player which has been causing quite a stir. At a price tag of about $9,000, Rega ISIS is certainly one of the most expensive home CD players available. It isn’t so much the price tag of the Rega ISIS that is at the issue though. Many people consider CDs a dead technology. However, Rega ISIS really challenges this idea with the quality that they deliver.
When you purchase the Rega Isis, it comes in a plywood box which makes it seem like you have bought something secretive and exclusive. Unlike the cheap CD players you find everywhere else, the Rega ISIS really is a sturdy machine that seems like it can last through the years. As you’d expect from a $9,000 CD player, the sound quality on the Rega ISIS is spectacular. It seems that Rega has also considered the future of their high-end CD player by including various quality inputs to USB, MP3, and WMA files from your computer.
