Full Adjustability for Cartridge Loading, Two Different Gain Settings, Stellar Parts, Compact Size, Thrilling Sound: Rega Fono MC Phono Preamplifier Defines Entry-Level Audiophile Analog
Fono MC, Rega's latest foray into entry-level, high-end phono preamplifiers coincides with its Ania MC cartridge. While Fono MC works brilliantly with Ania, it is designed to pair with any MC cartridge and features full adjustability for loading via rear-panel dip switches as well as two different gain settings. Anchored by a low-noise Linear Systems LSK389 FET in an all-discrete input stage and a MUSE op amp in the RIAA equalization amplifier, Fono MC also boasts polypropylene capacitors in the signal path and RIAA circuitry for stellar linearity. The aluminum casework provides excellent shielding for the sensitive internal components while the sleek, compact architecture mirrors that of Rega's Fono MM phono preamplifier and TT-PSU 2 power supply. Borrowing heavily from the more sophisticated and costlier Brio amplifier and Aria phono preamplifier, Fono MC convincingly makes analog thrills come alive for a cost most anyone can afford. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
