Moving Coil Transformer

Available January 2024

“For valve boys who want to hear their low-output m-c but not the hiss, this is just the ticket.” Andrew Harrison, Hi-Fi News,April 2003.

The Quicksilver MC transformer is the ideal way to extract maximum performance from moving coil cartridges. It was designed to match the RIAA curve specifically for use as a step-up device. It provides 23 db of gain for any phono cartridge with an output impedance between 1 and 40 ohms and has far less noise than an active head amp.
