The Rega RS-10’s have been designed to integrate perfectly into any system. Initially designed to complete our reference range, the RS10’s provide the perfect partner for the Isis CD player, Osirisamplifier and RP10 turntable.
The RS-10 loudspeaker system offers the user the ability to adjust its performance to suit different locations via our ‘environment match’ adjustment feature.We have pioneered the integration of a BMR unit with the unique Rega ‘dual driver bass system’ and a completely new and exclusive Rega designed tweeter to create a very special and unique loudspeaker which offers unparalleled levels of control balance and dynamics.
The RS-10 loudspeaker uses a BMR (Balance Mode Radiator) to handle the majority of the audible music spectrum.The BMR design concept was conceived as a full range driver handling all musical frequencies from bass through to treble with a single driver and no crossover. This concept works remarkably well and produces a musical transparency normally associated with electrostatic loudspeakers. However no concept is perfect and a single BMR can only produce limited bass output and some people may prefer more precise musical images. Most loudspeaker systems have a crossover point for the mid-range driver and tweeter between 2kHz and 3kHz.
This can upset the vocal region with distortion and phase shift. It is also where the human ear is most sensitive. Therefore with use of the BMR unit, Rega has been able to design a crossover point above the most critical range. The high frequency capability of the BMR, has allowed the two units to integrate to 6 kHz. This gives massive improvements in sound quality with greater clarity and detail in the music. Rega has pioneered the integration of a BMR with the unique Rega dual driver bass system and a completely new and unique Rega designed and UK manufactured tweeter.
The high frequency sound of a BMR is so good that the quality level of any normal tweeter will not combine with it. This is why Rega felt compelled to design a new and unique tweeter that would complement the BMR unit. This new tweeter, the ZRR-10, uses Rega’s ZRR (Zero Rear Reflection) technology combined with an unparalleled production technique that allows the silk dome to be assembled directly onto the front plate thus eliminating a major source of unwanted vibration. Each tweeter is meticulously hand assembled at Rega’s factory in the UK and incorporates a copper Faraday ring which extends the frequency response of the tweeter up to 23kHz by lowering inductance of the voice coil.
