Rega Saturn-R DAC + CD Transport

The new Rega Saturn-R DAC + CD Transport ($2,995) was making its debut at RMAF. I guess the target for these DAC/disc spinners is for those people who don't want to rip their CDs but who do want to play their downloads, too. The Saturn houses 4 S/PDIF inputs, an asynchronous USB input, and the Wolfson WM8742 DAC for up to 24/192 playback.

The Saturn was connected to the Rega Ellict-R Integrated Amp ($2,995) which drove the PMC Fact.12 Loudspeakers ($19,500/pair).
