"The very essence of vinyl record fidelity is preserved with this moving-coil step up transformer"


The Music First Audio MC Step up is placed between a low output Moving Coil phono cartridge and the Moving Magnet input of a phono preamplifier to increase gain.

Because it is transformer based, the Music First Audio MC Step up increases gain without adding noise and because it uses a very high quality transformer, it adds no colouration.
It is housed in a custom designed aluminium case measuring 88mm x 216mm x 200mm

The core component of the Moving Coil Step up is the legendary Stevens & Billington TX103 MC Step up transformer. This hand crafted transformer is the result of thirty plus years of high end transformer design.

The transformer features a split, four section primary winding which allows gain ratios of 1:5 (14dB gain), 1:10 (20dB gain) and 1:20 (26dB gain).

Like all Music First Audio products, each unit is made by hand at their workshops on the south coast of the UK.
