The Soundsmith MMP4 Phono preamp is a revolutionary design for the price – and the comments received at each hi-fi show prove it. These preamps are what Soundsmith use to demo their cartridges at all shows even their high-end cartridge designs
Each hand-made preamp circuit is housed in a high-quality aluminium case, powered by an external DC power supply, with easy to set up instructions. All amplifiers have extremely accurate RIAA equalization responses.
The MMP4 is a more cost-effective way to enjoy your high output MC, MM or MI cartridge. Its design is based on Soundsmiths highly praised MMP3, and the specs and sonics make it a great value. It features 47K loading and 43 dB of gain.
Employing very high-quality components, the MMP4 assures noise-free and ultra-low distortion to allow unfettered enjoyment from your treasured vinyl collection. The MMP4 and MMP3 have been favourably demonstrated against preamps costing $2000 – $4000 with surprising results… and compliments to Soundsmith.
