Quality Phono Stage with USB Output
Drawing upon Rega's acclaimed MM Fono preamp, the Rega Fono mini A2D is a quality phono stage that's designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a suitable level for all line level inputs of an audio amplifier. The USB interface also offers the ability to archive your vinyl to your PC in digital format.
Variable USB Output Level Control
To transfer vinyl to your PC, you'll need to install a digital audio editor. While the software isn't included with the A2D, it is widely available as a free download (such as Audacity) from the Internet. The software uses a simple interface which allows monitoring of volume and balance while transferring your audio to your PC hard drive.
Audio editing software includes a level meter, which indicates the output level achieved when playing a piece of vinyl. You should adjust the output as necessary via the USB level control located on the front panel. Always take special note of record levels to ensure optimum recording quality.
Based on Mira Amp Phono Section
When you're not busy archiving, you can kick back and enjoy the superb sound of the A2D. It's a cost-effective version of the phono stage that's used in Rega's Mira amplifier. It offers exceptional performance and convenience.
The Fono mini A2D benefits from an extruded aluminum case and very user friendly front and back panels that make this phono preamp simple to use. Simply switch on, sit back, and listen!
