The Rega Isis is one of the finest CD players we have ever heard regardless of price. Built beautifully and simply this product seems to fix what is wrong with CD; which is to say it has an analogue sound.

Rega’s flagship CD player, the Isis, is a product manufactured to the highest achievable quality inside and out including Rega's own unique CD technology, genuine black chrome lid and front facia and a custom solid anodised aluminium case weighing in at a notable 19kg! We hope you enjoy this very special CD player; we have spent a very long time creating it, drawing on our many years of experience in specialist hi-fi manufacturing.

Another less well-known feature is that you can connect your computer via USB into the incredible DAC's used in this CD player and the end result is very high performance for your stored music - remarkable if stored losslessly.

The USB input has asynchronous operation at sample rates of 44.1 to 192kHz with a bit rate of up to 24bits. The USB uses dedicated drivers in the computer, enabling full ASIO operation, thus eliminating signal degradation caused by generic windows based drivers.
