Product Features: The step up trasformers

• MC10/ MC10L: provides 10 times transformation ratio or 20db of gain • MC16/ MC16L: provides 16 times transformation ratio or 24db of gain • MC20/ MC20L: provides 20 times transformation ratio or 26db of gain

The MC series moving coil step-up transformers are used to amplify the low level output signal from a moving coil cartridge bringing it to the appropriate level to drive a moving magnet phono preamp.

When terminated in 47k which is the standard input impedance of MM phono preamps the equivalent input impedance of each one would be: MC10 500 ohm / MC16 200 ohm / MC20 140 ohm.

If additional loading is needed, it can be done through the parallel input RCA connectors.

The MC series transformers are large size, single C-core, double coil transformers using a proprietary amorphous core material. Special winding techniques were developed in order to minimize inter-winding capacitances and maintain wide frequency response. They are optimized sonically to be as invisible as possible.

The L versions provide transformers with extra large size, single C-core, double coil transformers using a proprietary amorphous core material.

The transformers are shielded with mu-metal and are potted in 10mm thick soft iron nickel coated enclosures providing immunity to outside magnetic fields and a quiet and noise free performance.

The MC transformers were developed in conjunction with the Ypsilon VPS100 phono preamp. They can be used with most of the moving coil cartridges. For optimum performance the MC transformers can be used within a specific range of cartridge output levels.

MC10/ MC10L may be used with cartridges from 0.4 - 0.6mv
MC16/ MC16L may be used with cartridges from 0.3 - 0.4mv
MC20/ MC20L may be used with cartridges from 0.2 - 0.3mv
