EDWARDS AUDIO - MC1 PHONO STAGE
Trade-In Edwards Audio MC1 MM MC Phono stage
Edwards Audio MC1 Phono Stage: Entry-Level Price, Top Shelf Performance
Outstanding Sound with a Very Attractive Price Tag
The MC1 is Edwards Audio's most affordably priced moving coil and moving magnet RIAA phono stage, though its performance is hardly "entry level." Uncharacteristic of phono stages at this price point, the MC1 will easily drive a 600 Ohm load. It features standard gain for both MM at 40dB and MC adding an additional 23dB, so the MC1 can be used with the majority of normal pre-amps.
"...you can buy the Edwards Audio MC1 with confidence. For vinyl enthusiasts desiring a high-end phono stage but on a restricted budget, I recommend it highly."
