MC1 - Tube Phono Preamplifier

Designed around the legendary 12AX7 vacuum tube in a 3 stage amplification stage using 2 x 12AX7 tubes for gain and the third for a buffered output to achieve lower impedance and better drive capability.

As with all out products the quality of components is always of the highest standard.

Mundorf silver/gold oil capacitors are used in the signal path and Dueland Coherent Audio cables used for all internal wiring along with high quality RCA connectors for purity of signal transmission.

MC1 features :

  • Free lifetime modification to MM or high output MC
  • Built in SUT'S
  • Enhanced and perfected RIAA EQ
  • Mundorf silver/gold oil signal capacitors
  • Duelund oil/cotten internal wiring

This model is primarily a MM Phonostage with built in SUT's for typical MC use, how-ever for MM or high output MC cartridges a free modification is available to convert this to any cartridge and associated impedance and capacitance for perfect compliance.

SE model comes with Miflex copper paper/oil capacitors and Duelund silver internal wiring.
