The one box design has separate MM and MC inputs—indeed, separate MM and MC amplification circuitry— and via a series of rear panel dipswitch configurability for moving coil capacitive and resistive loading as well as for two gain levels of These are relatively high gain levels that assure the Aria can handle even the lowest output moving coil cartridges.

Though these gain figures are more appropriate for very low output moving coil cartridges.

Load resistance choices here via dipswitch areand 70 ohms. These are sensible choices. I was so impressed with that one I bought the review sample. However, the M1 produced a somewhat warmer and relaxed sound, that might appeal more to some tastes.

The "pink rim" Island second press was mastered in the U. Cartridge choice is critical here. The M1 would work better with brighter cartridges, producing a more balanced combination, while the Aria combined with a more supple-sounding cartridge might produce a more idea balance—that is unless you like the more taut ride for all of your listening, for instance if you are exclusively a rocker.

This reissue as well as an earlier one from Classic Records restores the dynamics and betters the original in just about every category, though of course the diehards will vehemently disagree. Less power to them! These are less critical when listening to rock. The point is, at this price point, when choosing a phono preamp, you have to carefully balance your system as it currently exists with where you might want to take it and how adding a dynamic, expressive and wide band performer like the Aria might affect it now and in the future.

That said, with the right cartridge and in the right system and with the right music, the Rega Aria will be an ear-opener. For that you'd BEST go elsewhere. Great stuff love em. Would you consider that cartridge "bright"? Which of the two preamps might balance better with that cartridge.

I am probably going to upgrade my phono stage this year, and this is exactly my price point Very nice review and I totally agree with you comments, I'm lucky enough to listen to one all day long at work.

A definate contender for the world's heaviest Phonostage at a whopping 19kg due to its 15mm thick aluminium casework as used on the matching Isis CD Player and Osiris amp. Staggeringly, there is very little presence of the Ios Reference on the net. Love to hear how you think it stacks up against the best with a Continum.

First, thank you for the review. What would the proper loading for a high output mc like the dynavector Should it be run through the mm or mc inputs? Thank you! Though it's called a "high output" MC, the 10x5 is an "in-betweener".One step up from the Fono Mini is the full-fledge Fono MM there used to be a Fono MC, but this does not seem to have been continued on into the latest generation of the Fono series. The Aria has completely separate moving magnet and moving coil sections, rather than the usual route of relying on a transformer or additional gain circuitry to enable an MM stage to also take on the lower output MC amplification responsibilities.

The rear panel has two pairs of RCA input jacks to cater for each separately. Gain, loading and MC capacitance are set via multiple DIP switches on the back panel, so you can optimise the MC cartridge set-up parameters easily. Having two gain levels of The high gain levels mean the Aria can work with fairly low-output moving coil cartridges, most of which sit in the upper echelons of the price scale.

So, all fine here, nothing to bitch about, unless you need balanced ins and or outputs, or an analogue-to-digital output to digitise your vinyl, which one mostly does not find on gear in this price range anyway. IN CONCERT: With effectively two separate phono stages to run in, I requested the editor to solicit the patient understanding of the local distributor as I set about getting to know the Aria, it being at the back of my mind that stylus time is not cheap nowadays, given the costs of cartridge replacement here in Malaysia they are ALL imported where the currency has taken a bit of a nosedive.

I have to say from the outset that the Aria did not disappoint. Soundstage was well-defined and fairly large, individual instruments in well recorded orchestral works placed with satisfactory specificity and good clarity in side-to-side as well as front-to-back planes. The Aria produced punchy bass with good slam which, while firm and tightly resolved, was more about setting the foundation for the music rather than any sense of it seeking to bludgeon the listener with exaggeration to impress for the sake of it.

Leading edges of the bass notes were clearly defined. When it came to rendering transients, there was a feel of good speed and attack, making the likes of old prog-rock tracks still sound fresh and compelling, and acoustic guitars coming through sounding articulate and fast with good body.

Trying out the Pioneer Linn K18ii combi and listening to the el-cheapo Fono Mini against the Aria, the improvements were there all right, but not in the same perceived measure of forward steps than when listening to a Garrard RBExact played through the Fono Mini and then the Aria in turn.

It shines with all kinds of music and I, for one, would be very happy to continue listening to my LP records through it. Preamplifiers, phono stagesReviewsTurntables, cartridges.

An Aria from Rega – a phono stunner

You can buy phono stages, at least of the moving magnet cartridge variety for less than a hundred dollars at corner electronic stores.

But, when it comes to the subtlety and transparency of moving coil cartridges and the ability to load the cartridges to your specific musical needs, then a full figured gal like the Rega Aria is what is needed.

Nothing much to see here. The Manley Steelhead is a 7K stunner and the last word in tubed phono stages. The Zesto Audio Andros at 2K less than the Steelhead is very fine, but misses that last ounce of effortless headroom that the Manley provides. And finally, an odd source, I thought. I reviewed their full featured preamp and amazing power amplifierbut the Phono FL coming in at a price between the Zesto and the Manley was my favourite. Effortless and incredibly quiet. So, if you have 5K or more to spend, any of these three amazing phono stages will work.

For the general consumer and less well heeled audiophile who wants quality analogue in everyday situations, the Aria is perfect. Enclosed within the half width case are two separate phono stages, one moving magnet and one adjustable moving coil unit. The case is aluminum and is completely analogue within -- no digital control circuitry.

The use of FET transistors ensures there is no bias current flowing in the cartridge coil so as not to upset the delicate magnetic geometry of the cartridge. The MC input has the provision for selecting resistive input loading of 70ohms to ohms and capacitive loading of pF to pF.

The input sensitivity can be changed by 6dB via the back panel. The MM input uses low noise, bipolar input transistors also configured as a compound pair. There are two separate power supplies for each channel and further sub-power supplies for each of the low noise input circuits. Nichicon FG electrolytic capacitors have been used in critical positions throughout the power supplies.Housed within our latest half width custom designed case are two entirely separate high performance phono stages.

One fully adjustable dedicated moving coil and one moving magnet. Each stage is designed and engineered to maximise the potential of your vinyl system whilst remaining easy to use and set up. The fully aluminium case screens the internal circuit from any stray RFI signals. Our designers have avoided including any superfluous gadgets as they obstruct the signal path and degrade the sound quality.

The Aria incorporates many innovative design ideas including a self-adjusting servo control to keep the MC input circuit at its optimum, compensating for any variations in ambient or operating temperature. Both stages have their own separate input sockets and input pre-amplifier circuitry. This enabled us to design bespoke input circuitry for each cartridge type without compromise.

Signal switching is performed at high level and low impedance via relays ensuring there is no degradation of the signal. The MM input uses low noise bipolar input transistors configured as a compound pair. There are two separate power supplies for each channel and further sub power supplies for each of the low noise input circuits. Nichicon FG electrolytic capacitors have been used in critical positions throughout the power supplies. Polypropylene capacitors have been used in the signal path and equalization networks.
