AD Audio announces a new step up amplifier for moving coil cartridges. Designed to compete with the best step up transformers this amplifier offers minimal colouration, and adds dynamics and punch compared to step up transformers. Components used include Elna Silmic electrolytics, Takman carbon film resistors, legendary Toshiba JFets, and gold plated /teflon input and output sockets.

It is available with battery power for 175, or with a matching mains transformer unit for a further 150. These prices are introductory in its current unbranded chassis.

The unit uses 2 x 9v batteries which offer long life and rechargeable batteries can be used as an alternative to the mains power supply.
