The Audio Note UK range of moving coil phono step up transformers are rightfully acclaimed for their supreme build quality and incredible sonic performance. Construction features a number of alternative materials for the transformers, depending on the model, but the entire range uses copper chassis for the very best performance. Models can be specified in various alternatives to suit virtually any cartridge.
The AN S5 uses large transformer cans wound in copper on interleaved, 0.1mm laminate super mumetal 250 cores. The S5 is available in two versions, each with a set input impedance:
AN-S5L: 1 ohm input impedance (suitable for the Audio Note Io range).
AN-S5H: 12 ohms input impedance (suitable for cartridges with an internal impedance of 3 to 4 ohms).
