Music First Audio MC Step up is placed between a low output
Moving Coil phono cartridge and the Moving Magnet input of a
phono preamplifier to increase gain.
it is transformer based, the Music First Audio MC Step up
increases gain without adding noise and because it uses a very
high quality transformer, it adds no coloration.
It is housed in a custom designed aluminium case measuring 88mm x 216mm x 200mm
core component of the Moving Coil Step up is the legendary
Stevens & Billington TX103 MC Step up transformer. This hand
crafted transformer is the result of thirty plus years of high
end transformer design.
transformer features a split, four section primary winding
which allows gain ratios of 1:5 (14dB gain), 1:10 (20dB gain)
and 1:20 (26dB gain).
Like all Music First Audio products, each unit is made by hand at their workshops on the south coast of the UK.
Mint condition, original box and papers.
