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.
Moving magnet (MM); high-output moving coil (HOMC); high output moving iron (MI) - in the output range: 1.6 - 9.2 mV (ref 1kHz at 5cm/sec) Your amplifier's volume control is intended to be set to give you the loudness you want and should be adjusted accordingly. With the lowest output cartridges you will need
