The MC1 PLUS is a variant of our award winning MC1, the difference is that it has additional options to aid the use of high output MC cartridges via different input loading options and a 50dB gain option, these are only for use via the MM input. Low output MC performance is also enhanced by the use of improved low noise op-amp in the first gain stage. So if you are using high output MC or want some ability to tune the MM input for use with passive pre-amps then this is your better option. It retains all of the performance of the MC1 but has added functionality but most importantly, it also delivers in the sound department as well, with expansive and detailed sound staging, drive and dynamics that are normally associated with much more expensive phono stages.
Initially released as the PSU2 this has now been renamed as the PSU 1 to bring it into line with our new series numbering.
This outboard DC power supply is designed to be used as a simple 'plug in' upgrade to the performance of our MM1, MC1, HA1 and other future products. It is unique at the price, with its' fully RoHs compliant gold plated custom made double sided PCB's, natural anodised extruded aluminium case and high quality internal parts, as used by TALK Electronics. It also benefits form TALK Electronics' buying power with its use of 1% thin film SMT Mini melf resistors plus low impedance electrolytic capacitors throughout.
The design features split rail topology with our advanced regulated design techniques to reduce all forms of noise whilst maintaining a fast transient capability. It is based around a custom wound 30VA toroidal transformer
To enable it to be used with its partnering components in a wide variety of differing systems with their sometimes strange earthing arrangements it has the additional facility of being able to switch the ground between fully grounded or lifted. This makes it very flexible by optimising the system to have it's lowest possible hum related noise.

Alfred Fredel Concludes if you are currently playing records or getting back in to the game, you owe it to yourself to give
the MC1 Plus a listen. With its very reasonable price tag, it is an absolute steal. Add to that the
optional PSU1 power supply and you have a unit that is hard to beat at any price range.
