The Sound Organisation: Rega & Dali
Speaking of affordable, high-quality audio, The Sound Organisation was showing Rega’s new Fono Mini moving-magnet phono stage with USB output ($175). I want one.
Sources were Rega’s sweet RP3 turntable with Elys cartridge ($1095; see Mikey Fremer’s review in December) and old-school Apolla CD player ($995). Rega’s DAC ($995; see our reviews in the May and October issues) and the new 50Wpc Brio-R integrated amplifier ($895; see Sam Tellig’s review in December) also got in on the fun.
I listened to the new Dali Zensor 1 loudspeakers ($475/pair), as well as the great-looking Dali Fazon F5 ($4495/pair), which first caught Rosemarie’s eye in Munich. The sound was smooth, rich, compelling, and totally affordablejust the way I like it.
