Preamplifier 2012 (2)

Part 2: Moving-Coil / Moving-Magnet (MC / MM) board

Published in issue 5/2012 on page 28

Just in case you didn’t know, vinyl records are making a comeback and there are even under-25 musicians releasing new material on CD cheerfully along with vinyl, preferably of the 180-gram variety. Also, high-end turntables are available at extragalactic prices but none of this makes any sense if you do not have a preamplifier to match your MC or MD cartridge optimally and that’s exactly what the present design does — rather successfully.
