The new MCX Phono Preamp optimizes the inclusion of moving coil step transformers in vinyl playback.  Ron Sutherland DESIGN PHILOSOPHY: Like so many people, it was assumed that moving coil step-up transformers were a relic from the past. Well-designed, modern phono preamps can achieve plenty of gain at very low noise AND a very intimate connection with the music. Adding a step-up transformer into the signal path seemed like an expensive, unnecessary, and detrimental complication. But, contrary to this, the popularity of SUT (Step Up Transformer) is on the upswing.

Putting a good SUT in front of their phono preamp brought out a rich, lush and emotive character that was completely seductive and people are passionate about sound quality.
