New Rega Saturn MK3 CD-DAC Player


The new Rega Saturn MK3 is re-housed in our very latest case designed to match the rest of the Rega range. The Saturn MK3 CD-DAC player offers complete flexibility and integration into any audio system. Essentially two products in one, the Saturn MK3 houses an independent DAC circuit and a high specification CD transport. Both sections are fully remote controllable via the supplied Solaris remote handset. 

Technology 


The Saturn MK3 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.

CDP features


The Saturn MK3 uses our proven digital to analogue converter and analogue output amplifier technology coupled with a pair of Wolfson WM8742 digital to analogue converter ICs. The Saturn MK3 our own CD section power supply which was a result of the research & development of our reference CD player along with the improved microcontroller and display drivers.

Key features

  • Wolfson WM8742 DAC
  • USB 192 kHz - 24 bits asynchronous
  • Enhanced output amplifier circuit
  • Enhanced digital power supplies
  • Redeveloped analogue & digital outputs
  • Solaris system remote included
  • Lifetime warranty against manufacture defects

Digital mastered


You will find plenty of connectivity options, up to and including 24bit-192 kHz. The Saturn MK3 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 MK3 integrates perfectly into any system and provides the perfect partner for the forthcoming Rega Elicit MK5 integrated amplifier.
