Here's Some Photos of the Rega Fono Mini
Here are a few photos of the Rega Fono Mini in action. I wish the lighting was better, but the sun hasn't been seen in over a week. It's been grey overcast skies as far as the eye can see - typical October in Minnesota.
This humble little preamp is breaking in very nicely. The music is warm and smooth, confident and detailed. It's proving to be an excellent match for my Ortofon 2M Blue, which is currently my favorite cart.
Among the audiophile crowd, Cambridge Audio's 640P ($179) and 540P ($99) are the undisputed champions. But don't count Rega out. A few brave souls insist the Rega Mini competes evenly for a full bodied, warm MM sound. It's a definite underdog, and I'm always one to root for underdogs.
