Rega Research’s new product development team have been in overdrive for the past couple of years. Hot on the heels of last year’s Planar 1, 2 and 3 and new Brio amplifier launches, this week Rega unveiled THREE new products, all coming this month: brand new Fono MC moving coil phono stage, redesigned Apollo CDP cd player and new Fono MM Mk3 moving magnet phono stage.
NEW Fono MC
Specifically designed to complement Rega’s range of moving coils but equally good at improving the performance of any MC cartridge, the new Fono MC promises to be a great addition to Rega’s portfolio. With circuitry design taken from the development of Rega’s reference phono stage Aria, and the same stylish aluminium casing as Fono MM and TTPSU, this fits perfectly into the range. Price £248.
Re-designed to aesthetically match the sleek look of their new Brio amplifier, Rega’s new Apollo CDP player will be revealed at the Munich High End Show this week (18th-21st May) and should be available in the shop in the next few weeks. Price remains £598.
Fono MM Mk3
Completing the trio of new releases from Rega is a new Fono moving magnet phono stage. Housed in the latest design case to match the new MC stage the Fono MM Mk3 is the perfect partner for Rega’s range of moving magnets – Bias2, Elys 2 and Exact – but is compatible with any other moving magnet cartridge. Price remains £198.
So a busy launch schedule for Rega this month, with all three new products being unveiled in Munich. We’re already wondering what’s next from the turntable specialists… watch this space!
