Moving-Coil Step-up transformer



The JVC MC-T100 is designed for higher input impedance with a view to reproducing better tonal quality.

For less crosstalk and inter-modulation distortion, inside transformers are floated and wiring is separated for left and right channels.

Switching loss and response change have been minimised by use of copper contacts on both variable and fixed points, less contact resistance, for the MC/Pass (MM) switch.

Paralleled leads double shielded low-capacitance output cable is used for sound resolution and better S/N.

Magnetic distortion has been minimised by use of aluminium for chassis and casing material.

Highly reliable gold plated input and output terminals are used.
