These qualities are principally down to the extremely convincing overall balance that the Brio has.
You can spend a few hours meandering around Tidal throwing anything you like at it and the Rega will deliver the musical message without breaking a sweat.

This is never at the expense of detail though. Every auditory experience can be attributed to a measured characteristic somewhere but I am stuffed if I know how the Brio does it. At the other end of the scale, the bass response of the Rega is also exceptional. As I noted in its review, the Spendor A1 is not a bass monster but it shows exactly what the electronics up stream are doing.
