Rega Fono MC Moving Coil Phono Amplifier

$549.00 inc. GST

SKU: Fono MC Category: Brand:

Description

The Rega Fono MC phono amplifier has been designed to optimise the performance of the Rega range of moving coil cartridges, however, this model can be used with most brands of moving coil cartridges available.

Rega Fono MC Features:

  • Dedicated moving coil phono stage
  • Simple connectivity and operation
  • Fully adjustable via DIP switches via rear panel
  • MUSE operational amplifier used in RIAA equalization amplifier
  • Two selectable gain settings
  • Default factory settings matched for all Rega MC models
  • Rega Lifetime warranty against manufacture defects

The Fono MC has been designed to be effective, easy to use, and above all, to reproduce music. The Fono MC uses the Linear Systems low noise LSK389 FET in an all discrete input stage where low noise and linearity are vitally important to get the best from a moving coil cartridge. Because of the high input impedance of FET, the loading effects of the amplifier circuit are minuscule and do not affect the performance of the cartridge.
