Rega Fono MM MK5 Phono Preamplifier Offers Beautiful Design, Simple Operation, and Stunning Sound with a Variety of Moving-Magnet Phono Cartridges
The Rega Fono MM MK5 Phono Preamplifier has been engineered to be effective, easy to use, and, above all, to accurately reproduce music with great detail. The Fono MM MK5 uses a fully discrete, cascaded, complementary amplifier input stage. This configuration is designed to optimize the performance of a moving-magnet phono cartridge. Now housed in a redesigned case to match the Fono MC and Rega's latest range of electronic components, the Fono MM MK5 offers a modern look guaranteed to integrate nicely with any hi-fi system.
The aesthetic design of the Fono MM was as important as the quality of its electrical capabilities, so it benefits from the same updated aluminium case as the Rega Neo and Fono MC amplifier, giving it a design that provides a familiar feel. Moreover, this aesthetic approach brings it in line with its illustrious "big brothers."
Also, the RIAA equalization has been split into two stages to minimize interaction. Polyester capacitors have been used in the signal path, and polypropylene capacitors are used in the RIAA equalization circuits.
