I have the previous Brio R and have inquired about trading for the new model but no reply yet. I have had the Brio R since Aug 2016 and have been very happy with it - using it in my office system at work.

Thanks for your reply, miner42. I've decided to order a unit and it will be arriving shortly. I'll report my impressions in due time (after significant break-in). I heard the previous R version at lengths, and while I like it a bunch, couldn't live with or ignore the shortcomings (to my ears).
Thanks once again for all replies and hope that more will come with hands-on reports.
I don't have the Brio, but I do have a Rega Elicit-R integrated amp and Saturn-R CD/transport/DAC. Fantastic bit of kit IMHO. The build quality is outstanding, built like a solid aluminum brick. Sound is great too. Very smooth, with plenty of detail and the best bottom end I've heard in my system.
If this is indicative of the Rega house sound, I like it.....
