Fono MC Phono Preamp

The Fono MC is an exceptionally high-quality MC phono stage designed to maximize the potential of any MC cartridge. Although specifically to compliment the latest Rega range of moving coils you will find full adjustability for loading is available via dip switches conveniently placed on the rear panel with two different gain settings located on the back panel making the Fono MC compatible with most low output MC cartridges.

High Notes

Amazing for the Money

Easily the best sub $500 moving coil phono stage we have tested.

Trickle Down Tech

You get lots of tech that Rega learned about in their much more expensive Aria phono preamp.

Perfect Ania Match

If you have a Rega Ania, it is a no-brainer, perfect match!

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 an MC 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.

A MUSE operational amplifier is used in the RIAA equalization amplifier. Polypropylene capacitors have been used in the signal path and in the RIAA equalization circuits. There is selectable input loading for both resistance and capacitance along with two different gain settings located on the back 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 aluminium case as the Rega TTPSU and Fono MM amplifier, giving it a design which offers a familiar feel and moreover brings it in line with its illustrious bigger brothers. The new Fono MC circuit resulted from the design work carried out on the Aria phono amplifier.

  • Fully adjustable to ensure it plays well with any other MC cartridge on the market.
  • Fono MC uses low-noise, high-impedance FETs that minimize negative interactions from the cartridge.
  • High-quality polypropylene capactiors are used in the signal path for excellent lineraity.
