The ZYX CPP-1 is an active MC gain stage that employs battery power to isolate the phono signal and sets input impedance (at 100ohm) with a proprietary coiled wire resistor.
This Pre-Preamp is dedicated to ZYX cartridges, but it works perfectly with all MC cartridges providing a load of about 100 Ohms.
Handmade in Japan by constructor/designer of ZYX Mr. Nakatsuka.
All components made by hand. The labor quality of all components is immaculate.
The highest quality cryogenic purified monocrystal copper - exactly the same used by ZYX in its 1000 series cartridges and coils.
Completely neutral acoustically and electrically - casing made of wood.
This is a battery-operated device with the option of powering by a dedicated transformer. After full charging (12 hours) about 5 -6 hours of continuous battery operation is possible.
Input Impedance 100Ω
Signal-to-Noise ratio 95dB THD <0.1% (1kHz)
Frequency Response 2Hz - 500kHz ± 1dB
