The FM 222 has become legendary reviving and helping to create the renaissance of vinyl reproduction. The new MKIII is a refinement of the original versions with all features and unique characteristics.

Below the description of the earlier
FM 222-MKII

  • The world's only true balanced symmetrical phono preamplifier.
  • The absolutely ultimate in phono linearization and preamplification.
  • Unique continuously variable de-emphasis controls allow correct replay curves of any record ever issued.
  • Astounding improvement of LP and Shellac reproduction. Treasured record collections gain an entirely new life.
  • The lowest noise and the highest dynamics of any preamplifier.
  • Absolutely transparent.
  • Ultra high-accuracy RIAA de-emphasis circuitry.
  • The only preamplifier providing truly accurate reproduction of vinyl LP's and Shellac records.
  • Unlimited combinations of cartridge loading allows optimization of any MC or MM cartridge.
  • Tremendous headroom and reserves in signal handling capability.
  • Outputs optimally interface to true balanced, pseudo-balanced or unbalanced loads and automatically adjust for optimal performance.
  • Ultra linear balanced line drivers.
  • No more matching problems of cables and electronics.
  • Zero overall feedback or feedforward.
  • Unique filters removes hum frequencies on LP's, Shellacs etc.
  • Entire unit uses discrete circuitry.
  • Special dynamic curve-tracer analysed semiconductors, each of which is additionally selected in an FM ACOUSTICS exclusive listening test.
  • Proprietary enhanced Class A circuitry: no signal degrading IC's, transformers, hybrid circuits, tubes or op-amps.
  • Hand-selected and ultra-precisely matched components of DIN, IEC & MIL standard guarantee ultimate accuracy and long-term stability.
  • Performance without equal as the technology, the circuitry and the manufacturing methods are proprietary to FM ACOUSTICS.
  • The ultimate for restoration work, mastering studios, libraries, precise monitoring and for record collectors.
  • To see what others think of the FM ACOUSTICS Phono Linearizers
