The Rega Mira 3 Amplifier is a high performance audio amplifier using the Improved “type 3” Rega Alpha-Encoder control system comprising of high quality loss-less relays, plus a digitally controlled analog switched resistor network volume control. The Mira 3 is housed in the Rega custom-built extruded aluminium case incorporating a high thermal efficiency heat sink. Rega has kept the same level of performance and synergy between stages as in the original Mira 2000 amplifier with a better level of functionality & controllability in the volume control user interface.
The Mira 3 is a 60 Watt integrated amplifier with full flexibility within the range. It has a Pre-amplifier output and Power amplifier input. The gain of the power amplifier is 28dB for full output, and thus enables the amplifier to be expanded to drive Bi-amplifier or active speaker systems (Sub Bass etc). It can also drive multiple speakers if required or be part of a high performance AV system.
The amplifier has a fully short circuit and DC protected output stage and high quality Evox film capacitors have been used in the signal path throughout.
The volume level is controlled via a microprocessor, which in turn takes its information from the volume digital encoder on the front panel or remote control handset.
The volume control has a resolution of 1dB per step, giving a total range of 80 steps over the available gain or volume range of 80dB.
There is a calibrated LED display comprising of 20 LED's, which indicates the gain level or relative position of the volume control; this is calibrated in 4dB steps, across the total gain of volume range. The left and right channels are matched and balanced within 0.2dB, ensuring a centrally placed soundstage no matter what the volume position or which gain level has been set.
