When the Rega design team asked themselves, "how do we make the most successful turntable we have ever made sound better, be even easier to use and be more accessible to a wider audience?"
The answer was simple; Rega's engineers added a custom designed, high quality, moving magnet phono preamp stage based around the multi-award winning 'Fono Mini'.
- 33 & 45 RPM Belt Drive Turntable
- Built-in phono preamp
- Quick setup in under 30 seconds
- Hand assembled RB110 tonearm
- High quality, low vibration motor
- Phenolic resin, flywheel effect platter
- Factory fitted Rega Carbon moving magnet cartridge
The built-in phono stage is a high specification pre-amplifier. It is designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a suitable level for all line level inputs of an appropriate system or audio amplifier. This allows simple connection to a wide variety of products using either the standard twin phono to phono lead (supplied) or phono to 3.5 mm plug (not supplied).
There are obvious audio advantages to housing the phono stage directly beneath the tonearm. The carefully shielded tonearm wire is soldered directly to the stage which prevents any unwanted pick up via the usual external cable between the arm and stage.
Brand new RB110 tonearm built with the new Rega designed, bespoke, zero play bearings with ultra-low friction performance (Patent Pending). New bias assembly and integrated arm clip.
