$200 Off, 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 $499, but now, at $299, 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.
