Step-Up Transformer-Less Head Amplifier for Moving Coil
The Elevator EXP step-up transformer-less head amplifier lets you step-up low output moving coil cartridges to moving magnet phono stage input level without the hum of a transformer. Ideal for use with valve phono stages and the Era Gold
Elevator / Elevator Plus / Elevator EXP
The Elevator step-up transformer-less head amplifier (active step-up device) have been designed for users of high quality MM only phono stages to enable the use of a moving coil cartridge. The Elevator EXP 5MHz bandwidth being especially suitable for use with valve (tube) phono stages and the matching Era Gold phono stage.
The Elevator EXP step-up transformer-less head amplifier is low noise (hum) and wider bandwidth than a conventional step-up transformer.
The Elevator EXP step-up transformer-less head amplifier is designed for high end moving coils, capable of matching their performance in terms of timing, timbre and high frequency response, through the use of a very fast 5MHz bandwidth amplifier module, which ensures absolute phase accuracy throughout the audio spectrum and beyond.
With MC/MM phono stages there will always be compromises, but by using a dedicated MC head amplifier with a dedicated MM phono stage, these compromises cease to exist and the resulting sound is much improved.
The following cartridge loads are available via two front panel gold plated contact switches:-
47,000 - 5,100 - 1,000 - 840 - 100 - 30 - 23 Ohms
DC coupling is used throughout each Elevator step-up transformer-less head amplifier. The zero volt rail is internally generated providing an absolutely clean ground. This allows the use of a single sided supply, and a simple 24 volt battery supply can therefore be substituted by the user for extremely critical listening.
Components used in the Elevator are to the highest professional standards, including FR4 epoxy resin single and double sided plated through hole printed circuit boards, C&K gold plated contact switches, Analogue Devices semiconductors, tantalum capacitors, Elna audio grade capacitors, Wima low inductance high speed polypropylene and silver/mica capacitors. Connections are by heavy gold plated, Teflon insulated deluxe phono jacks, and an additional arm earth is provided for convenience.
The case which matches the Era Gold, Jazz Club and Solo, is our unique construction aluminium extrusion base and top, with 3.2mm thick front and rear panels. Finish is satin silver anodised aluminium.
