Almost as critical as the cartridge itself, the phono preamplifier is key in any system.
The Soundsmith MCP-2, MMP-3 and MMP-4 preamps are revolutionary designs at their price points; proven by their worldwide acceptance. All preamps feature supreme linearity and ultralow noise performance by employing the fi nest circuit parts available.
The Soundsmith MCP-2 is a high performance yet low cost way to enjoy your low output Moving Coil (MC) or Moving Iron (MI) cartridge. The SOUNDSMITH HYPERION, SUSSURRO, PAUA and Zephyr MIMC all mate well with this model. The MCP-2 boasts a unique feature; continuously variable loading (10 Ohms to 5K Ohms) via a rotary control to afford you complete control of the high end response for your cartridge, system and individual listening preference. Featuring built in Soundsmith designed and manufactured fully shielded step-up transformers the MCP-2 has been favourably demonstrated against preamps costing 3 to 4 times more with stunning results.
Designed to work with High output moving coils, moving magnet and moving iron types, the MMP-3 reminds the listener just how critical the phono stage is. Pairing with SOUNDSMITH high output cartridges, the MMP-3 takes the analog signal to the next level, without altering any of the detail, nuance and musicality for which analog is known.
Utilising the same exact circuit design as the MMP-3, the MMP-4 is value engineered to offer very good performance at an entry level price point.
