Thanks Dave !
It is for sure a real high end integrated.
At 4k dollars for a clean second hand unit, so less than the price of a new MC 275, you get a highly musical, highly powerful and detailed preamp / amp : a bargain indeed !

Jerome.....Congrats and thanks for sharing

I've heard both the Rega Brio R and the Osiris but not together.There is a rather large price difference between the two but If you're just looking for a no frills unit, the Brio R was pretty impressive. I would consider the Osiris if it came in Silver.

Cisco... Thank you. But I did not order it yet.
I'm waiting for a quote from my dealer for Osiris + RS 10. If the deal does not sound good to me, then I will buy the RS10 first and see later if I drive them with the Osiris or an other amp....

What are the dimensions of the RS10? No info on the Rega website...

I find the Rega product portfolio incoherent - plenty of cheap products without design coherence and then the Isis + Osiris + RS10 as if they were from a different manufacturer. I simply don't get what's their brand identity in terms of design and customer segment.

The same identity that Wolkswagen has between the Polo and the Phantom.
The identity of Rega is the music that flaws.
RS10 is still not available for purchase.

I have the Osiris and Isis in my system and I agree 100% that these are an unbilieved combo. i can say that they are even "cheap" by the performance
I am driving the Dynaudio Special Twenty Five which I love, however, I am very interested on this new RS10. Do you know this the Dynaudio Special Twenty Five? If so, how can you describe the sound differences between them ? ( or any other Dynaudio's model you may know)
Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the RS10

I do not know the special 25. But I know many other Dyns.
The RS 10 won't give you as much bass impacts and extension compared to the Dyns. But to my ears, they give a more insight to music. I feel moved by the RS10. Not so much by the Dyns.
BTW, the RS10 are available now. Waiting to sell some stuff and will get a pair.

Thank you for your reply. I was wondering that it would be the main differences...I am going to quote and check if the local dealer in Brazil is already able to bring this speaker...and I guess that it would probably cost around USD 24k here. A huge amount.

Sorry for bothering you. Have you already received the RS10? Have you decided to use the Rega Osiris in your system ?

Thank you,

Thank you,
Dear HBA, you're not bothering me at all.
Wow !
24k in Brazil ??? is this for one or 2 RS10 ? Just kidding.
the Brazilian importer must have a few Ferraris to pay !
That is huge compare to 9k euros here !!

No I did not buy them yet but plan to.
I will place my order as soon as the PMC EB1i will be sold. If nobody wants them, I will keep the EB1i in my second system and will forget the RS10s....
No Osiris planned if I get the RS10. My Manley Snappers / Mc Intosh C46 seems better to me but if I get the RS10, I will compare both options at home.
