** Newly Updated and Improved! **

An upgrade in quality does not have to deplete your wallet.

The Soundsmith MMP & MCP preamps are revolutionary designs for their price - and the comments we get at each hi-fi show prove it. These preamps are what we use to demo our cartridges at all our shows even our high end cartridge designs -

Each hand - made preamp circuit is housed in a high quality aluminum case, powered by an external DC power supply, with easy to set up instructions. All amplifiers have extremely accurate RIAA equalization response.

Our MMP4 is a more cost effective way to enjoy your high output MC, MM or MI cartridge. Its design is based on our highly praised MMP3, and the specs and sonics make it a great value. It features 47K loading and 43 dB of gain.

Employing very high quality components, the MMP4 assures noise free and ultra-low distortion to allow unfettered enjoyment from your treasured vinyl collection. The MMP4 and MMP3 have been favorably demonstrated against preamps costing $2000 - $4000 with surprising results... and compliments to Soundsmith.

** Our Moving Iron cartridges are best with 42- 44 dB gain preamps; most moving magnet and moving Iron cartridges will work well with our 43dB gain preamps, however, for VERY HIGH output cartridges (4.5mV or higher) we offer a 34dB gain preamps as an option ~
THD measurements 1kHz, ~0.004%

24 volt power supply included [US standard 120 volt]; optional European (schuko) 230 volt AC to 24 volt DC transformer
