Rega A2D Fono Mini
It may not look much, but this little pre-amp from Rega (about half the size of a paperback book) is the perfect link between a Rega turntable and the beautiful Blue Aura v40 valve amplifier. The pre-amp converts the Phono output from a turntable into a Line Level signal for your amp and speakers - sounds like gobbledegook, but the result is a sound which is as smooth and as sweet as runny honey!
Here's some more gobbledegook, for those who love Technical Specifications:
The Rega Fono Mini A2D is a high quality phono pre-amplifier for use with any moving magnet cartridge. The addition of USB interface allows you to easily transfer vinyl to your PC. The Fono Mini A2D is designed to amplify the signal from a moving magnet cartridge to a suitable level for all line level inputs of an audio amplifier.
The Fono Mini A2D benefits from an extruded aluminium case and very user friendly front and back panels that make this phono pre-amplifier a very easy product to use. The Fono Mini A2D amplifier offers exceptional performance and incredible value for money and promises to be a valuable addition to any hi-fi set up. To transfer vinyl to your PC, you will need to install a digital audio editor. Such software is widely available as a free download (such as Audacity), from the internet.This is a simple interface which allows monitoring of volume and balance whilst 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 ‘Level’ control located on the front panel. Always take special note of record levels to ensure optimum recording quality.
This is a cost effective version of the Fono MM and based on the phono amplifier as used in the Brio-R amplifier.
