STEREOPHILE RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: http://www.ypsilonelectronics.com/files/press/df620c16ebdae0fa87db86d6d2bc2026.pdf Michael Fremer, Stereophile Magazine: ”provides an intoxicating blend of stupefying extended high frequencies, resolution, clarity, and transient precision, along with tight, deep, nimble, nonmechanical bass, and an ideally rich ie not too rich-midrange with just the right amount of body and harmonic structure.”
Positive Feedback, USA: http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue57/ypsilon.htm Marshall Nack: “Very occasionally a component comes in that is able to nudge the listening experience in a novel direction. The Ypsilon VPS 100 Phono Stage is one of them. The VPS 100 cons excellent performance on the objectivist criteria with the unique qualities only step-up designs bring.. As a total package, the Ypsilon VPS 100 Phono Stage offers the finest, most satisfying, analog playback I’ve heard to date.
Tone audio magazine USA: http://www.ypsilonelectronics.com/files/press/40f444f644c2804998f6f0b54232ab89.pdf “an ability to project, back, up , sideways, down, revealing aspect of LPs that had never been previously apparent…there is an immediacy to the sound, a lack of restraint and a sense of time delay having been removed when the Ypsilon is in my system”
PHONOSTAGE SOLD FOR $20K in Audiogon 2013
Ypsilon MC10 Moving Coil Step up Transformer Original Price: $2,800.00 The MC series moving coil step-up transformers are used to amplify the low level output signal from a moving coil cartridge bringing it to the appropriate level to drive a moving magnet phono preamp. When terminated in 47k which is the standard input impedance of MM phono preamps the equivalent input impedance of each one would be: MC10 500 ohm / MC16 200 ohm / MC20 140 ohm.
The MC series transformers are large size single C-core double coil transformers using a proprietary amorphous core material. Special winding techniques were developed in order to minimize inter-winding capacitances and maintain wide frequency response. They are optimized sonically to be as invisible as possible. The transformers are shielded with mu-metal and are potted in 10mm thick soft iron nickel coated enclosures providing immunity to outside magnetic fields and a quiet and noise free performance. The MC transformers were developed in conjunction with the Ypsilon VPS100 phono preamp. They can be used with most of the moving coil cartridges
