Rega Aya loudspeakers

Developed over ten years by a team of Rega designers headed up by our founder Roy Gandy, the Aya loudspeakers promise to deliver a detailed, balanced performance no matter which genre of music you decide to play. Using Rega designed, handmade drivers, coupled with our ZRR high frequency tweeter and a new crossover, our engineers have fine-tuned every aspect to deliver the best possible performance. The sculptured cabinets and stand create an attractive, floating effect which adds to the unique appearance.

After a decade of trials and development, the Rega Aya loudspeakers are born. Housed in a unique, UK manufactured cabinet moulded from GRC, (glass reinforced cement) the glass fibres that make up the construction reduce the weight whilst increasing the structural integrity of this 2.5 way band pass design. This technique creates the perfect loudspeaker enclosure that enhances performance whilst offering exceptional value for money. Thanks to the combination of the new enclosure and drive unit configuration, the Aya loudspeakers deliver a tight accurate bass response and the Rega signature midrange and detailed highs.

If Rega was to continue with our customer promise to deliver exceptional performance and value for money, the ever-increasing cost of real wood veneered MDF cabinets meant we had no choice but to investigate other options. After a decade of trials and development, the Aya loudspeakers are housed in a unique, UK manufactured cabinet moulded from glass-reinforced cement. The glass fibres that make up the construction reduce the weight whilst increasing the structural integrity of this 2.5 way band pass enclosure.

This technique creates the perfect loudspeaker enclosure that enhances performance whilst offering exceptional value for money, Aya is priced at £1,499 per pair. The process of moulding the Aya loudspeaker cabinets was developed alongside a UK-based company who are best known for bespoke concrete furniture and installations.

Rega fans out there will know that we have always questioned the marketing and science surrounding turntables. Experiments and research have allowed us to debunk most commonly held beliefs and use real engineering to produce world beating sound quality at sensible prices.

However, the loudspeaker market is very different because a valid scientific and engineering discipline exists which in turn has created hundreds of competitors in the loudspeaker marketplace. The success of many loudspeakers depends on powerful marketing, eye watering advertising budgets (of which Rega spends zero) and financial inducements to retailers. The funds that most loudspeaker companies would spend on marketing, Rega has put it all into research and development to achieve a totally unique cabinet construction.
