Ortofon T20 MK II MC Step-up Transformer *Reserved*


SGD 650

Good condition. No box.

Product Description

Low output moving coil cartridges are perhaps the best sounding cartridge designs available. However, their low output makes them incompatible with many modern amplifiers which only have Moving Magnet phono stages. Furthermore, cartridges with very low output below 300 uV need special attention to overall system noise if the best performance is to be obtained. Truly low noise phono preamps are very costly.
The T20 MKII lets you keep your current moving magnet preamp and experience the very best that moving coil designs can provide. With the T20's 28dB of noise free gain, you can easily use cartridges with outputs as low as 100uV.
The T20 MKII is easy to install. It can be placed anywhere and requires no attendance. T20 MKII features a wide frequency response and highly shielded toroidal transformer. The T20 MKII requires no power.

The advantage of using a transformer like the T20 is that it is practically noise free. To get the very best sound from low output MC's noise must be kept to a minimum.

Small , compact and powerless. The T20 can be placed just about anywhere.

All steel construction and internal permalloy shielding wards off the effects of stray magnetic fields.
