Rockford Fosgate Signature Phono Pre needs repair

Hi guys, 

Hoping someone here could point me in the direction of a tech that could repair my phono pre.  I recently moved and despite my best efforts, my phono pre arrived at its new home with a dead right channel.  I have tried all the input switching and tube swapping, but the right channel remains dead.  Any suggestions greatly appreciated. 


Try contacting Musical Surroundings. They are the former distributor for the Fosgate Signature.

I once had a Signature V2. It ended up with right channel problems that never did get fixed correctly. I ended up getting a full refund from the dealer, but that was nearly a decade ago.

MS contracted a company somewhere on the east coast.

I had my V.2 repaired for the right channel. It was linked to the subpar assembly/build QC. 

Mine is 10 years old. Still playing, but now has a wonky right toggle switch(gain)

I demoed the Foz side by side with a few very popular,comparably priced, even a bit more costly brands, and thought it wasn't  blown away by any of them

You need to find a competent tech who can ad lib since no schematic is available. 

Sad,  because I did a side by side with a few  comparable tube units(popular brands) and thought the Foz wasn't  blown away by any of them,just different.

I'm eyeing the new  Prima Luna to match my PL amp.

I think MS also used an east coast facility for the repair of mine. It came back and worked for about a week before developing the same fault again. That’s when I was refunded. Ended up with a Herron VTPH-2 (upgraded later to 2a) and used that for six years. Now I use a Naim Superline, but that might change because I now have two tonearms.

"Fosgate is defunct?  What about all those Fozgometers"

Still on the MS site,so perhaps the Fozgometer brand name is being kept alive?



The Fosgate phono-stage and headphone amp are long discontinued. The Fozgometer is still a current product and was upgraded to a v2 not so long ago.

Jim Fosgate died this past December.
