"The Rega Saturn R is an amazing CD player. You folks who know me already know that I prefer LP playback, but this CD player I really like! It is the first CD player that I am excited about in maybe forever. The sound quality is better than the Naim CDX2 which is over $6,000 plus this player has the advantage that you can use it as a DAC via its various digital inputs. To hook it to my Macbook Air took all of 30 seconds. Build quality is first rate! This player is very highly recommended."--Gene Rubin

 

Design technology
The Saturn-R is the result of many years of innovation, advanced software development and elegant engineering solutions researched by our highly skilled team of engineers and designers. It took the completion of two of our multi award winning products, the flagship Isis CD player and the Rega DAC to pave the way for a unique product we feel encapsulates everything the new Saturn-R should be.

Introduction
The Saturn-R  CD-DAC player offers complete   flexibility and integration into any system. Essentially two products in one, the Saturn-R houses a high specification transport and  independent DAC circuit. Both sections are fully remote controllable via the supplied Solaris remote handset.  You will find plenty of  connectivity options, all at the highest possible resolution up to and including 192KHz-24Bit. The Saturn-has two optical inputs, two Co-Axial inputs, a fully asynchronous USB and an added ‘direct’ digital output from the CD playback  section. This ensures the Saturn-integrates perfectly into any system and provides the perfect partner for the Rega Elicit-R integrated amplifier.

CDP Features
The Saturn-uses our proven digital to analogue converter and  analogue output amplifier      technology coupled with a pair of Wolfson WM8742 digital to analogue converter IC’s. The Saturn-R  has improvements to the CD section power supply which was a result of the research & development of our reference Isis CD player along with the improved microcontroller and    display drivers.

Technology
The Saturn-R  uses a high stability master clock and high capacity power supply in the CD circuitry, high performance PLL  digital    interface receiver, isolated digital inputs and high performance power supply architecture in the DAC circuitry. Signal switching  between the CD and DAC functions are  performed in the digital to analogue  converter stage. The signal path of the CD section in CD mode is kept to a minimum.

USB 192KHz-24bits asynchronous
The DAC USB input has been improved with asynchronous operation at sample rates of 44.1 to 192 KHz with a bit rate of up to 24bits. The USB input has the same galvanic isolation as used in the Rega DAC. The USB uses    dedicated drivers in the computer, enabling   full ASIO operation, thus eliminating signal degradation caused by generic windows  based drivers.
