Shelter 411 Moving Coil Step-Up Transformer New in Box [Expired]


no longer for sale

The Shelter 411 is a highly rated step-up transformer that allows one to use a low output moving coil phono cartridge with a low-gain phonostage that would otherwise require a high-output cartridge.  Simply plug the unit between the output of your tonearm and the input to your phonostage via the high quality RCA connectors and you are good to go.  The Shelter adds 32 dB of gain and the phonostage/preamp takes care of the RIAA equalization curve and volume control.  Through its use of extremely efficient shielding (Mu-metal), the Shelter 411 MC Step-Up Transformer provides outstanding signal-to-noise making it an ideal combination for even the lowest output MC cartridges.  This transformer is new in the box.  I purchased it from the Cable Company, but while waiting several months while it was backordered at the factory, I bought a VAC Signature Mk IISE preamp with a high-gain phonostage making the Shelter superfluous in my system.  The transformer has been sitting on my shelf since May, 2016 and needs to find a home where it will be used.

 

I have priced this unit to sell fast and the asking price is well below what you will find anywhere, even for a well-used example.  Paypal is the preferred method of payment and I will cover the fees.  Unfortunately, due to my past experiences with forged bank checks from A’gon buyers, payment by check or money order will delay shipment until check clears the bank clearinghouse (10 working days)- sorry. Please contact me with any questions.
