Rega Ela Information

Rega Ela Mk1Not technically a Royd speaker, however the Rega Ela Mk1 was developed in conjunction with Royd Audio and shared the same drivers and similar transmission line cabinet design, to the Royd Apex. Later versions of the Rega Ela changed this design and opted for a Rega driver and cabinet changes. The Rega Ela 2000 came much later and was a wholly different speaker. Due to this strong connection with Royd, I’ve added a page specific to the Rega Ela, detailing the different versions, which you can find here.
A while ago, I uploaded an interesting review from the day, comparing the Rega Ela (Mk1) and the Royd Apex. Well worth a read, as it contains a lot of detail of their differences and unique tonal characteristics.

Rega Ela / Royd Apex Comparison Review Added.

Royd ApexJust added an interested review of the Royd Apex and Rega Ela (version 1) from Hi-Fi Review, Nov 1989. The first versions of the Rega Ela shared a good deal of design with the Royd Apex. It includes some elusive information on actively bi-amping the Royd Apex, using the Naim NAXO 2-4 active crossover.
