Kiseki MCT-1S Improved

Silver Wired Moving-Coil Transformer

Kiseki MCT-1S Improved


The sliver wired moving-coil transformer was the first product made by Mr Fokadu, being a special design for the low-impedance, low-output cartridge he was using himself.

This was the model MCT-1/MCT-1S, now available as the Kiseki MCT-1S Improved.

This is in fact the same design, however it has the possibility now to use it with low-impedance (around 5 ohms) moving-coil cartridges and also mid-impedance (around 40 ohms) cartridges.

The coils are winded on his special winding lathe and only the purest (99.99%) silver is used.

Each channel has it's own perfect screen against magnetic fields.

For best results a special aluminium/magnesium alloy has been used in the housing.

These transformers may be the best update for your current system.
