Description

A zero negative feedback hybrid design, the 994 embodies much of the attributes of our highly acclaimed 995R mono amplifiers but in a smaller and equally distinct sculpted form.

Offering the listener 140W into 8 Ohms and significantly more into lower impedances, the 994 is eminently capable.

Again using the 6H6П in a grounded grid configuration driving Trilogy’s unique generous compound output stage.

As with the 995R, the 994 offers the ability to be operated in Class AB, Class A or ecoA modes.

Of course, a massive choke input power supply as one would expect.

Yet another Trilogy statement piece of form and function from the mind of Nic Poulson - made reality.

Introduzione alla Trilogy Audio Systems

'The essence of music

- engineered'

From a passion to remain true to the essence of music, and by keeping all the key design elements in harmony, we create products of true quality.

Look at the objects around you in your home or work place; the chances are much of what you see is the end result of derivative thinking. By bringing a small improvement to what already exists; a commercial niche is filled and a small advantage over your competitors is gained. Here at Trilogy Audio Systems we do things differently. 

"Making some of the best-looking, best-finished and - appropriately - best-sounding kit in the UK today, but rarely shouting about it, is Trilogy." 

KEN KESSLER - HIFI NEWS

Nic Poulson is the principal designer of all Trilogy Audio Systems products.

Nic's background was originally in broadcast engineering, training with the BBC in the eighties. The corporation's legendary high standards made a deep impression on him. He learned that the way to achieve true quality is to strive for excellence in every area and accept nothing less. He went on to found Trilogy in 1990 and quickly earned a reputation for producing designs that reflected his core values of performance, reliability, pride of ownership and value for money.

Nic's designs can also be found in runway lighting systems, guiding aircraft safely to land at major airports across the UK. His success in the exacting industry of aviation is further confirmation of his breadth and versatility as a designer.

After studying in depth the inherent weaknesses in most mains derived power supplies, and their surprising impact on sound quality, Nic founded Isotek and revolutionised the concept of mains conditioning. Now the creative force behind Isol-8 Teknologies, he has delivered award winning designs which display none of the negative qualities shown by previous generations of mains conditioners. His products have taken the audio community by storm and are sold to discerning users worldwide.

His design philosophy is the key to understanding all Trilogy products.

Instead of deciding a price point and assembling a product steering committee chaired by a marketing manager, Nic goes back to first principles: identifying the fundamental questions at the core of each design issue. By carefully addressing and optimising each electrical design element to deliver the optimum solution, his goal of minimum compromise is achieved.

We complement this by taking great care over the realisation of the design. Beauty, reliability and user friendliness are essential qualities that must be present as a design makes its way through the myriad processes that make a physical real world product.

These are the reasons why our designs are enduring. From a passion to remain true to the essence of music, and by keeping all the key design elements in harmony, we create products of true quality.

Several years in the making, the latest generation of Trilogy Audio Systems components remain true to our original core values. Engineered from the inside out with real heart and soul behind them, they will provide lasting satisfaction, making music for your pleasure. We hope you will share the experience with us soon.

The first Rega - A star is born

Roy was now working for Ford as a technical editor but spent most of his free time installing friend's hi-fi equipment and building loudspeakers to sell. He became a part time retailer and found he had to spend a ridiculous amount of time repairing new turntables before his conscience and common sense would allow him to sell them to others! Out of frustration and a strong feeling he could do better, the Planet turntable was born. Roy and a partner registered "Rega" (Tony RElph, Roy GAndy). In 1973 and for a couple of years, Roy stayed at Ford and made turntables in the evening, helped by his partners: mum (who agreed to help out for two weeks and stayed for fifteen years!) and a succession of lads. The first turntables were sold through Cosmocord in the UK and a year later under the Rega name in West Germany, Denmark and France.

Roy was now able to leave Ford; he collected a redundancy check and promptly blew it on a factory in Rochford. Soon after the partnership with Tony Relph split, Roy swapping his share of Rega. Terry Davies joined as Rega's financial administrator.

In 1975 the Planar 2 was developed and quickly took its place in the market as the finest budget turntable. In June 1977 HI-FI News and Record Review announced the Planar 3 saying "The complete unit is worth a look"! Rega's usual blaze of non-publicity.

By 1980 Rega employed thirteen staff, exported to twelve countries, had twenty UK dealers and there were those dreaded 'waiting lists', mainly by eager customers shop-hopping!

 In 1980 Roy found an old mill (Park Street) in a residential area in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex. The building had been deserted for twenty years and judging by the rot, seemed to have a millstream still running through it! Rega snapped it up for £30,000 and turned it into a compact but highly functional hi-fi factory, liberally painted bright green.

In 1983 after five years of dabbling and two years of intensive development, the RB300 and RB250 tonearms were produced. For ten years Rega had used Japanese and Danish manufactured arms on the turntables but after some searching Roy found a casting company prepared to work with him to develop an entirely new production method enabling the one-piece tube to be cast.

Rega won an international award for the RB300 casting, presented by Modern Metals 'awarded in open competition for excellence in the field of Aluminium Die Casting'. In their accompanying letter they wrote: 'we are still trying to figure out how you produce such a long cored hole so accurately'. This made up for never winning any prizes breeding budgies!

For five years, Rega sold a cartridge, the R100, made to specification in Japan. This was followed by the RB100, which was designed and developed by Rega. However, the cartridge had inevitable design limitations as it was being manufactured by an outside company.

In March 1988 the Bias and Elys cartridges went into production in house and sales exceeded 1000 in the first month, five times more than anticipated! The cartridges were a vital step on the way to a complete Rega system.

Completing the system...

In the summer of 1989 the Ela loudspeaker was introduced. Designed and developed at Rega, they were originally produced in Denmark but soon thereafter were manufactured in house.

In 1991, a period of dramatic expansion was heralded with the move into the world of electronics and the launch of two amplifiers, the Elex and the Elicit. The reason for producing these two amplifiers was simple; Rega was presented with a design it could not resist! Most importantly, the amplifiers fit into the company policy - which is to manufacture high quality, specialist hi-fi components that are reliable, consistent and sensibly priced. This development completed the Rega system.

A new factory was built in 1992 on the Temple Farm Industrial Estate in Southend-on-Sea under Roy's design and guidance to house the production of loudspeakers and amplifiers and to ensure room for further developments.

2014....

Over the past 40 years we have come a very long way. Now selling to more than 40 export markets and producing on average 2000 turntables alone every month, Rega now employ's almost 90 people in our purpose built 30,000 sq ft design and manufacturing facility in Essex, England.

Rega continues to grow and develop new products, all of which strictly follow those early Rega virtues of excellent build quality, long life and amazing value for money all backed up by a lifetime warranty against manufacture defects.
