The MCP-2 boasts a unique feature; continuously variable loading (10 Ohms to 5 K Ohms)  via a rotary control to afford you complete control of the high end response for your cartridge, system and individual listening preference. Featuring built-in Soundsmith designed and manufactured fully shielded step-up transformers the MCP-2 has been favorably demonstrated against preamps costing 3 to 4 times more with stunning results.
