    Rega Fono Moving Magnet Phono Pre–amp

    The Fono MM is a moving magnet disc stage which has been designed to be effective, easy to use and above all reproduce music. The new surface mount board layout has been optimised to work with the latest generation of RP turntables. This compact design, now housed in our custom case to aesthetically match the rest of the range, offers performance way beyond that expected at this price point and makes an excellent addition to any vinyl based system. The Fono MM simply connects to the line input on the amplifier and the tonearm leads and earth (if used) to the input sockets and earth terminal of the Fono MM back panel.

    Low Frequency Response

    The Fono has been designed to be effective, easy to use, and above all to reproduce music. The input sensitivity has been increased to 1.7mV and the capability to drive lower output loads has been improved. The low frequency response has been slightly extended along with a review and improvements to the capacitors used in critical positions in the circuit, this is to reflect the improvements in the Planar turntables. The aesthetic design of the Fono was as important as the quality of its electrical capabilities, so it benefits from the same aluminium case as the Rega Ear Headphone amplifier, giving it a design which offers a familiar family feel and moreover brings it in line with its illustrious bigger brothers. The Fono disk stage is designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a level which can feed into a 200mV line level input on a standard hi–fi amplifier i.e. with CD or Tuner input.
