Transfer Vinyl to Your Computer for a Song: Rega Fono Mini A2D Mk2 Makes Analog-to-Digital Conversion a Breeze
A stellar budget-minded MM phono preamplifier that also allows you to transfer your vinyl LPs to your computer for archiving, the Rega Fono Mini A2D Mk2 converts analog signals via USB connectivity – making it a snap to convert your analog collection records into high-resolution digital audio. And in spite of the ultra-low price, Fono Mini delivers excellent timing, space, detail, and spaciousness when playing back LPs.
If you want to transfer vinyl to your PC, you simply need to install a digital audio editor, such as Audacity, available for free on the Internet. Operation couldn't be simpler. On the front panel of the redesigned extruded aluminum case, you'll find a USB output and two controls: one for level and one for balance. After you install the digital-editing program on your computer, just use the controls on the Fono Mini front panel, where you can adjust the levels for optimum recording quality. That's it! Hours and hours of archiving bliss await.
"Few products have the talents to remain unchanged for more than six years and still be top of their class, but this is most definitely one."
