- I'm interested in a cool grey Rega RP3 turntable with an Ortofon 2M Red cartridge and the Rega fono A2D. What is the digital output spec of the fono, please, is it CD QUALITY or better..?CheersQuestion by: product_question on 2016-09-18 02:52:44
The output is set to 16bit/48kHz which is slightly better than CD quality (16bit /44.1K)Answer by: on

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 affective version of the MM Fono and based on the phono amplifier as used in the Mira amplifier.
