MC10 MC Phono Preamplifier
The MC10 employs an advanced circuitry with highest quality components to provide the extra gain stage and RIAA equalization circuitry that are required for highly accurate and low-noise reproduction of the low level output of a phonograph cartridge. Two chassis design with matching external power supply to further minimize overall noise specifically to magnetic field interferences generated by the power transformer.
The massive Power Supply utilizing three carefully selected vacuum tubes (1 x 5AR4, 1 x 6V6 and 1 x 6SL7) incorporated with a well thought out design with substantial energy storage and high inherent regulation.
The Line Stage utilizing four 12AX7 vacuum tubes and each tube is shielded to minimize interference and to reduce microphonics. Two Sweden Lundahl step-up transformers are used in the MC gain section to provide high gain with ultra low noise that guarantees a very quiet background. Another key feature is the use of Amtrans AMRG premium carbon film resistors (with gold-plated leads) along with other premium grade components throughout the circuit to achieve exceptional RIAA accuracy. On top of that, two pair of MC inputs are available for turntable with dual tonearm.
