Product Description

Edwards Audio Apprentice MC Phono Stage adapts the earlier Edwards Audio MM1 model in a new and improved design while retaining its predecessor's passive treble and active bass equalisation.

This high-performing model punches well above its weight by utilising a second stage amplifier to buffer the equalisation network and to ensure a low output impedance. Alongside this, the MC gain uses a third separate op-amp.

Sleek Construction, Intuitive Design

The Apprentice MC phono stage is designed to be partnered with the brand's bespoke single rail DC regulated switch mode power supply. As a result, the requirement for expensive extrusion has been eliminated. A sleek 3mm black acrylic front panel and a 5mm machined aluminium frame completes the aesthetic of the model. In the front panel switch you will find MM or MC selection. 

Sublime Sound Performance

The model delivers a near silent noise floor and 42dB gain in MM mode or 63dB gain in MC mode, so you can expect an audiophile level sound performance.
