High-Grade Circuitry
The RIAA equalization has been split into two stages to minimise interaction. Polyester capacitors have been used in the signal path and polypropylene capacitors are used in the RIAA equalization circuits.

Form & Function
The aesthetic design of the Fono MM was as important as the quality of its electrical capabilities, so it benefits from the same aluminium case as the Rega TTPSU and Fono MC amplifier, giving it a design which offers a familiar feel and moreover brings it in line with its illustrious bigger brothers.

Why do I need a preamp?
A phono pre-amplifier is designed to boost the signal from a turntable or record player before the signal is passed to your Hi-Fi amplifier or receiver. Typically the signal output from a turntable or record player is quite weak, and it's required to be boosted before it hits the main amplifier of your stereo or hi-fi unit.

On the Flip-Side...
Some hi-fi amplifiers or receivers have a dedicated "phono" input and some modern turntables have a "line" level output - this simply means they have a phono preamp built in and an external one is not necessary. However if your system or player doesn't have this feature built in, or if you want to use a high-end one, you'll need a separate preamp (like this one).
