Rega - Fono MM Mk5 - Phono Preamplifier

Experience the perfection of audio reproduction with the Rega - Fono MM Mk5 - Phono Preamplifier. This innovatively designed audio component promises not merely to facilitate playback, but to amplify your experience of music.

At its heart, the Fono MM MK5 employs a fully discrete, cascaded, complementary amplifier input stage configured to squeeze maximum performance from your moving magnet cartridge. The result is exceptional audio amplification with minimal distortion, delivering a sound that is as close to the original as possible.

The Fono MM MK5 takes housing to the next level as it's wrapped in a newly redesigned case to match the new Fono MC and Rega’s latest range of electronic components. The sleek, modern look fits effortlessly into any hi-fi system, bridging the gap between functionality and chic aesthetic appeal. The design mirrors the aluminium casing of the Rega Neo and Fono MC amplifier, securing its place within this prestigious family of high-end audio components.

Apart from its impressive electrical capabilities, the Fono MM MK5 features a two-stage RIAA equalization. The equalization process has been split into dual stages to curtail interaction, ensuring a clean and structured sound. High-quality polyester capacitors enhance the signal path, while polypropylene capacitors are utilized in the RIAA equalization circuits to create sharp and precise sound reproduction.

The Fono MM Mk5 is a testament to Rega's commitment to quality and reliability. Simplicity in connectivity and operation is offered through the dedicated moving magnet stage, and the custom case design showcases sheer elegance. This phenomenal piece of audio technology's prowess is acknowledged globally with consistent What Hi-Fi? awards from 2017 through to 2021.
