What is "British sound"? It's the first time I've heard of it. I looked up the Rega Apollo. I'll need to find somewhere close to me to audition it.

The Apollo has won all kinds of awards, I personally haven;t heard it but it is supposed to be a great buy for it $995 retail.

The British sound is a little laid back and mellow, very non fatiguing.

I love the Apollo, word is though that they raised the price. Which is a shame if true.
