Customizable Loading, Two Switchable Turntable Inputs, Modifiable Loading Plugs: Musical Fidelity LX-LPS MM/MC Phono Preamplifier Features Stellar Versatility and Clear Sound

Musical Fidelity's LX-LPS MM/MC phonostage was a great buy at $500, but now, at $250, it’s an amazing value. Plus, LX-LPS now ships with five special loading options for better sound quality. In omitting the common tiny DIP switches to select loading, Musical Fidelity includes five pair of specific loading plugs to set the exact loading required for your specific cartridge—a much better option for a cleaner signal path and lower noise floor. The package also features RCA loading plugs with the following values: 100 ohm, 200 ohm, 500 ohm, 1000 ohm (for low-output MC cartridges), and 47k ohm for (high-output MM cartridges). See your cartridge manual for the appropriate setting or use your ears to find the loading that sounds best in your system.

In addition, while it already comes with them, LX-LPS allows you to easily solder in your own RCA plugs – a simple, elegant, and easy pathway to selectable loading normally not found on phono preamplifiers in this price range. With circuitry derived from the costlier MX-VYNL, excellent signal-to-noise ratio, and hyper-accurate RIAA correction that extends to 80kHz, the low-noise LX-LPS reproduces analog music with remarkable clarity, enjoyable warmth, and terrific instrumental separation. You'll experience gorgeous soundstages and dynamic swings while knowing you can customize LX-LPS whenever you want. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

  • Separate MM/MC selectable inputs
  • Extremely accurate RIAA extending out to 80kHz
  • Distortion negligible from 20Hz – 20kHz
  • Excellent overload margin
  • Excellent channel separation
  • Customisable loading plugs
  • Beautiful build quality

Music Direct CryoAcoustic Treatment
We have invested in our own cryogenic machine, allowing us to do our own in-house testing with temperatures and ramp up/ramp down cycles to maximize the effects on the materials. Countless hours of listening tests have confirmed the advantages of CryoAcoustic Treatment.

The cryogenic process involves cooling materials to very low temperatures through the use of liquid nitrogen. Temperatures reach as low as -190 °C, and the process registers a profound impact on the mechanical properties of materials – particularly metals. Used in aerospace technology, medical tooling, musical instrument construction, critical automotive components, high-pressure cutting tools, and performance-critical sporting goods, cryogenics considerably improve the sonic presentation of vacuum tubes, cables, transformers, and other audio-related products – as well as their internal components. Resistance to corrosion, firmer hardening, and added strength are just a few of the scientifically proven effects of cryogenics. And while the sonic benefits cannot currently be scientifically proven, listening tests confirm an increase in acoustic resolution – which is why we call our process CryoAcoustic Treatment.
