The resurgence of the vinyl records market in recent years confirms that analog recordings are still in demand and are an important medium for playing music. It is only logical that Viva Audio’s longstanding interest in traditional playback technology culminated in Fono.
Today, Fono is key to a supreme quality vinyl playback system. The reproduction of full dynamic range of the recording “as is,” without losing musical nuances, combined with the low noise floor and the lack of distortion are the main characteristics of Fono.
Remarkably low noise floor
Fono has a unique two-chassis design, featuring two active stages for low-output MC cartridges and an external power supply unit with 2A3 power tubes.

The listening experience delivered by Fono is an excellent example of our general philosophy — the authenticity of undistorted sound creates the real live concert atmosphere and turns it into a truly unique experience.

In 2010, in recognition of Viva Audio’s excellence in product development, Fono received The Absolute Sound HP's Golden Ear Award. The Absolute Sound is one of the world’s most respected Hi-Fi publications.
