Phono Preamp (MM/MC): The MoFi StudioPhono is a phono preamp that has
been engineered to work with a wide array of Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil
(MC) phono cartridges. The StudioPhono is
factory set to operate with most high-output moving magnet (MM) and moving
coil (MC) phono cartridges. If you are using a low-output moving coil (MC)
cartridge, you will need to adjust the phono preamplifier's settings for best
Adjustable Gain & Loading: With selectable gain
and loading, you will be able to tailor the MoFi StudioPhono to match nearly any
moving-magnet (MM) or moving-coil (MC) cartridge on the market. A readily
accessible bank of toggle switches can be found on the unit's underside to
quickly make adjustments without the need for any tools.
- Gain: selectable gain of 40dB, 46dB, 60dB, and 66dB
for MM or MC
- Load Impedance: adjustable load impedance of 75,
100, 500, 1k, 10k, or 47k ohms for MM, MM is fixed at 47k ohms
Mono & Subsonic Filters: Two selectable toggle buttons on
the top of the unit can engage a Mono or Subsonic filter mode. The Mono mode
will improve image stability and generate a richer tone for mono-recorded vinyl.
The Subsonic filter controls low frequencies below 20Hz preventing ultra low
Stereo RCA Input & Output: The MoFi StudioPhono is outfitted with
a gold-plated stereo RCA input and output. The input connects to your turntable's
output, while the output connects to an analog input on your AV receiver, stereo
receiver, or integrated amplifier.
External Power Supply: The included external power supply will need to
be plugged into an AC wall outlet, surge protector, or power conditioner.
Placement: The StudioPhono will operate at its best when properly
installed in a location that's free from magnetic fields like those generated by
equipment with power transformers (such as an amplifier), and within a
reasonable distance between your turntable and audio component(s).
