    Default 1.5 MV is this a Moving Magnet Phono Stage

    Good Morning

    I am asking because my current Nytech states a 1.5 MV board inbuilt is this acceptable for Moving Magnet or is it an MC stage ?

    Thank you

    Moving magnet, MC output around 0.XX, there are high output MC's however.

    I agree itís most likely MM but does it specify the loading? If itís 47kOhm then itís definitely MM

    Cool - Do you know where it would specify loading input on the Nytech Unit..?

    There's probably only one way to be sure, call them, I believe they still exist.

    It would be unusual at the manufacturing time, to be anything other than 47k I think.

    Sensitivity of 1.5 mV is indicative of about 44 dB of gain so it will be a MM input with almost certainly a 47K load.

    Personally I would not want to pair it with MM's having 5 mV or higher output as it is likely to sound a bit hot with those.

    But probably quite alright with 3-4 mV output MM's and would also likely work well with high output MC's that have real world output in the 2.2 to 2.5 mV range and are designed to be used into a 47K input.

    Used to have a Nytech integrated myself in the dark ages.
