TF-2 Phono Step-up Transformer

Low output moving coil cartridges are well loved for their detail and nuance, but need more gain than what most active preamps can provide. Too much active gain for these low-output carts introduces noise and distortion, so let your first gain stage be the TF-2 passive step-up transformer. The TF-2 adds 20 or 31dB of gain (choose at time of purchase), entirely with high quality wide bandwidth transformers and no active parts. Use the TF-2 with a Bryston BP-2 MM active gain stage or with your existing phono preamp.

Inputs: 2x RCA, 1x Turntable Ground
