Rega - Aria Mk3 - MM/MC Phono Preamplifier

Introducing the Rega - Aria Mk3 - MM/MC Phono Preamplifier, crafted with precision for those purists seeking optimal vinyl system output. As a showpiece of quality and dedication, this preamplifier houses two completely distinct and high-performance phono stages within Rega's newly designed half-width custom case, providing the unit with a refreshed aesthetic to perfectly match your existing equipment.

The Aria Mk3 features an all-analogue amplifier – intentionally devoid of any digital control circuitry – to deliver uncompromised sound quality. The unit's fully aluminium casing shields the internal circuit from any potential RFI signals, ensuring a clean and unobstructed pathway for your audio signals.

Free of all unnecessary gadgetry, the Aria Mk3 leverages innovative design principles such as self-adjusting servo control that automatically maintains the MC input circuit at its optimum, factoring in any variations in ambient or operating temperature. Each stage has their separate input sockets and input pre-amplifier circuitry, which allowed us to engineer dedicated input circuitry for each cartridge type without compromise.

The Aria Mk3 features a cutting-edge MC stage design. It utilizes low-noise, parallel-connected FETs, configured as a compound pair to ensure that there is no bias current flowing in the cartridge coil, preserving the integrity of the cartridge's delicate magnetic geometry. Furthermore, the back panel allows for 6dB change in input sensitivity.

The MM stage design uses low noise, bipolar input transistors, a separate power supply for each channel, two further sub-power supplies for the low noise input circuits, and Nichicon FG electrolytic capacitors in critical locations throughout the power supplies. Offering a finesse in sound reproduction, polypropylene capacitors are used in the signal path and equalization networks. Importantly, discrete circuitry throughout the signal path ensures full control of the circuit design.
