A Perfect Match for Rega's New Series of MC Cartridges

Borrowing heavily from its big brother Aria phonostage, Fono MC uses low-noise, high-impedance FETs that minimize negative interactions from the cartridge. RIAA equalization is handled by MUSE op-amps, similar to those in the Brio amp. High-quality polypropylene capacitors are used in the signal path for excellent linearity. The casework is aluminum that best shields the sensitive internal circuits. Power is supplied by a 24VAC "wall-wort", further minimizing negative interactions and noise.

  • Input sensitivity: 133uV or 76uV
  • Input level maximum: 6.7mV or 3.4mV
  • Minimum output load resistance: 5KΩ
  • Frequency response: 13Hz (-3dB) to 100KHz (-0.3dB)

    Silence is Golden


    I opted for the Fono MC in connection with the recent purchase of a P6 TT with the Rega Ania cartridge. While thrilled by the sound of the Rega package, I've found that the noise floor of the Fono MC is somewhat higher than I would like and will be upgrading since my philosophy is that, other than the music itself, "silence is golden".
