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 S9 uses very large transformer cans wound in silver on interleaved, 0.1mm laminate super mumetal 250 cores, copper-clamped to the chassis. The transformers are hard wired with Audio Note Pallas output cables, though alternative cables or RCA connectors can be specified to the custoer’s choice. The S9 is available in three versions, each with a set input impedance. Alternative, custom-manufactured loadings can be specified at no additional charge:
AN-S9L: 3 ohms input impedance (suitable for the Audio Note Io range).
AN-S9M: 12 ohms input impedance (suitable for cartridges with an internal impedance of 3 to 4 ohms).
AN-S9H: 60 ohms input impedance (suitable for cartridges with an internal impedance of 15 to 20 ohms).
