    Is it the LP110 V2?

    I don't know about the Brio, but I have a Fono Mk3 which I use for my Technics SL1210 MK2. I home demo'd the Moon LP110 v2 when I was looking for something better for my then SL1200G. The Moon definitely is a step up from the Fono Mk3, and more versatile. I also tried an Arcam Rphono. The Moon was the best of them, but I decided I needed a further step up to do the 1200G justice, and ended up with a Project RS. If you can get the Moon for same as the Rega I would go for it if it is a V2. If it's a V1, then no idea how they compare.

    It was a v2, but sadly was sold before I had made up my mind. Ordered the Fono from Amazon which should show up this week. Easy to return of it isn't a worthwhile upgrade.

    Hi I have a Rega P2 with Rega IO Pre-Amp and an Ortofon 2M Bronze cart. Would anyone recommend the Rega MM FONO stage to improve the performance of the cart?

    I have run the 2M Bronze with the Rega Fono, and it was a really good pairing.

    I have the Bronze and just got the Fono. Great match, at least to my ears. I found the Bronze a bit hard sounding and the fono smoothed it right out. Perhaps that isn't neutral sound, but it's the sound for me :agree:

    Noel Patterson and Echoes Myron thank you very much for your comments. I am going to buy the Fono stage shortly but have to say the 2M Bronze sounds good as it is!

    Hi guys, does anyone run a Nagaoka mp150 cartridge with the fono mk3?
    What are your impressions.
    Seen a few positive reviews of the Schiit Nagaoka combo. Whick is best.
