MC Step Up Box DS3

True Balanced Step-up Transformer

The output level of Moving Coil (MC) cartridges is significantly lower than that of Moving Magnet (MM) cartridges, being approximately 10 times lower. Consequently, a special phono amplifier is required to utilize the signals effectively. This higher gain, however, can lead to increased noise levels and distortion. The MC Step Up Box DS3 B is the solution.

Lively, dynamic & natural

The MC Step Up Box DS3 B works very differently compared to a phono preamplifier. The windings ratio of the transformer determines the gain factor. As it works completely passive and no external power is needed, no extra power can be produced. The increase in voltage is achieved by a coresponding decrease in current.

As there is no amplification, the MC Step Up Box DS3 B has a remarkable noise performance and a very low level of distortion. The sound with a Step-Up Transformer will be more lively, dynamic and natural.

Lundahl LL 1678 - Balanced In/Out

For the MC Step Up Box DS3 B we use high quality Lundahl LL 1678 audio transformers to ensure every detail remains. You can set the transformer ratio (gain) with a push of a button either on 24dB or 30dB. Use the single-ended RCA, or go balanced with the XLR in- and outputs and benefit from a low noise interference free signal transmission. Switch the in- and outputs via the push buttons on the front.
