The BMC MCCI Signature ULN is a current-driven phono stage that operates in balanced mode. Current drive is especially suitable for very low output LOMC cartridges that also have a very low internal impedance/resistance.  Such cartridges have a very low voltage output that is difficult to amplify except by the use of an outboard step-up device, usually a head amp or a Step-Up Tranformer (SUT).  However, because of their very low internal impedance, such cartridges do produce significant current, and current-driven phono stages were developed to take advantage of this characteristic.  For more information, please consult the BMC website:

Among many other complimentary things, Michael Fremer had this to say regarding the original MCCI, before the ULN Signature version was made available,
"B.M.C.'s Phono MCCI is exceptional, and easily among the best, if not the best, MC phono preamps available today at any price. Its sound was startlingly good, and in some ways seemed to surpass that of virtually every other phono preamp I've heard, especially in terms of transparency, and of not imposing its own strong character, or any character, on the music."

I rated the condition as 9/10 only because the item is not brand new.  It really has no surface blemishes; what you may see in photos is dust. I purchased it from a dealer. I am including all factory literature and will ship in the original cartons with original packing material.  Buyer pays shipping. Please also add 1.5% for Paypal; I will absorb the remainder of the Paypal fee.
