For sale is an Electron Images MCP-1 phono preamp for use with moving coil cartridges. This preamp is little known but is very, very good, especially with voices and acoustic instruments. It was tied for my 2nd favorite phono preamp when I tested 10 phono preamps in the last 6 months (first place was Allnic H3000 and other 2nd place tie was the internal phono preamp of the Ayon Polaris III, both way more expensive). You can see the excellent parts and build quality in my pictures. It was designed and built by Michael Kerster, who I read also designed phono preamps for Audio Note. I believe gain is 55-60 dB so it will work best with something around .4 mV of output. Loading is set using loading plugs. I successfully used it with my .2mV cartridge, but had to turn the volume control up about 25% more than with other phono preamps that had 65 dB+ of gain.

I recently purchased a new umbilical from Revelation Audio and 2 NOS 7DJ8 tubes from Upscale Audio. Both of these were very good upgrades and will be included with the sale.

This unit is in good condition with no major issues. I am conservatively calling it a 6/10 for cosmetics. There are no functional issues. I do not have the manual or original packing materials and boxes, but will be packed very well for shipping (check out my stellar feedback).

I will pay for half of insured shipping within the continental United States and half of Paypal fees if my asking price is met.

Purchase from a seller with great feedback on this site, audiogon (wcheng2), and audio asylum (winstoncheng888@hotmail.com).
