A fresh user interface is joined by a new remote control, which is supplied as standard. The Apollo-R is available in black or satin silver finishes.

The RP6 turntable meanwhile sports a hand assembled RB303 tonearm and a compact TT-PSU power supply

Using one of Rega's 'superlightweight', rigid plinths, a platter design constructed from float glass and a 24v twin phase synchronous unit.
