The Arcam rPhono offers a huge variety of adjustments for both MM type and MC type cartridges. There are various dip-switch selections for gain, resistance and capacitance on the rear of the rPlay. Having these adjustments is quite a forward thinking and high end feature which helps ensure compatibility with a huge range of cartridges if you choose to upgrade your turntable or cartridge later on. The other benefit of the rPhono is the ability to fine tune settings to optimise performance for nearly all turntables and amplifier in the market. The rPhono benefits from Arcam’s more than 40 years of analog audio expertise, and incorporates the finest parts and high-end audio circuitry in a layout optimized for low noise and distortion. Further, individually regulated power supplies ensure rPhono maintains an audiophile quality output stage that sounds big, neutral, detailed smooth and dynamic.
So how good is the rPhono? It is better than nearly any 'built in' phono stage (built into the turntable or the average amplifier) and indeed, What Hi-Fi have rated it an unequivocal 5 stars for sound, value and features.
Quote from What Hi-Fi Review :
"This is a hugely accomplished box. It’s relatively quiet – hiss levels are low – and capable of matching any price compatible cartridge. It sounds great too, with a combination of insight and entertainment few rivals can compete with. Highly recommended."
