Using Moving Coil Cartridges

Conventional (or low-output) moving coil cartridges output around one tenth of those of ‘MM sensitivity.’ The Reflex M can be used in conjunction with a step-up transformer or even better, the Elevator EXP step-up amplifier, to allow you to use moving coil cartridges. Alternatively a dedicated MC phono preamp such as the Reflex C may be used.

The benefit of using the Elevator EXP with a Reflex M is the ability to use all cartridge sensitivities just by swapping connections. Our customers often prefer the sound of the Elevator EXP & Reflex M combination for MC to the Reflex C.
