The Edwards Audio MM1 Plus is an entry level Moving Magnet (MM) or high output Moving Coil (HOMC) RIAA phono stage, unique at the price due to its gold-plated custom double-sided PCBs, natural anodised extruded aluminium case and high quality internal components.
The RIAA. Equilisation accuracy is within 0.5dB across the audio band and signal to noise is exceptionally low at-84dB A-weighted. The circuit topology has a totally buffered output section with a very low output impedance to reduce cable effects and improve output drive.
Also uniquely at this price point, the MM1 Plus allows for user optimisation of input loading, resistance, capacitance as well as damping of resonance peaking and gain for both MM and HOMC cartridges - all achieved via the use of internal jumpers.
Attention to detail also extends to the custom made plug top power supply, the PSU1 which is unique at this price level for its use of a split rail design using + and - DC power outputs for maximum rejection of RF noise, maximum dynamic range and overload margin. It also uses a gold plated custom made PCB with high quality diodes and snubber caps. This is no normal ‘off the shelf’ PSU as used by the competition.
Traditional Talk styling and performance requirements have not been overlooked either with illuminated metal etched badges and opal white front and rear panels as standard. This is the best built and most aesthetic phono stage in it’s class but it doesn't stop there it also delivers in the sound department as well, with expansive and detailed sound staging, normally associated with more expensive phono stages. It is also upgradable through the use of a dedicated PSU2 Power supply soon to be released.
