The Clearaudio Smart Phono MM/MC Phono Preamplifier is a dual mono design. Switchable between Moving Magnet and Moving Coil inputs and with automatic impedance matching for setting the ideal loading, the Clearaudio Smart Phono is suitable for all cartridges both low and high output. The power supply is a separate unit, thus keeping noise and interference to a minimum.
The MM/MC setting is easily switchable on the bottom of the unit. There are two white buttons, one for each channel, recessed in the bottom plate. Press both buttons down for MM setting. Release both buttons for MC setting.
"The great thing about the advances in analog music reproduction is that you can gain an astonishing level of performance for very little money. The Clearaudio Smart Phono is a classic example. Its built in a solid silver brushed aluminum chassis and offers the flexibility of MC and MM cartridge use and is dead quiet in operation. Partnered with the likes of the Benz Micro Ace cartridge it can provide the analog lover with even a beer-budget analog rig many years of happy listening." - Dave Thomas, Stereotimes.com
