The Rega Fono MC is an exceptionally high quality MC phono stage designed to maximize the potential of any MC cartridge.
Although specifically to complement Rega's latest range of voice coils you will find that loading capability is available via dip switches conveniently placed on the rear panel with two different gain settings located on the rear panel, allowing which makes the Fono MC compatible with most low output MC cartridges.
The Fono MC has been designed to be effective, easy to use and, above all, to play music. The Fono MC uses the linear systems low noise LSK389 FET in a discrete input stage where low noise and linearity are vitally important to get the best from an MC cartridge.
Due to the high input impedance of the FET, the loading effects of the amplifier circuit are minuscule and do not affect the performance of the cartridge.
A MUSE op amp is used in the RIAA equalization amplifier.
Polypropylene capacitors have been used in the signal path and RIAA equalization circuits.
There is selectable input loading for resistance and capacitance along with two different gain settings located on the rear panel making the Fono MC compatible with most low output MC cartridges.
The aesthetic design of the Fono MC was as important as the quality of its electrical capabilities, so it benefits from the same aluminum case as the Rega TTPSU and Fono MM amplifier, giving ita design that offers a familiarand, in addition, puts it online.
With his illustrious older brothers. The new Fono MC circuit was the result of design work done on the Aria phono amplifier.
