Moving coil cartridges should be stepped up with transformers to get the best sound quality. The issue with almost all phono preamps that claim they are MM and MC compatible is that most are MM phono preamps that in the MC setting just boost the gain.
This can create issues with sound quality. The fact of the matter is, MC cartridges need a transformer to be at their best. If you look at very high-end systems, they all use step up transformers.
Bellari doesn't just boost the gain of their phono preamps and call them MC compatible. They build a proper step-up transformer -- the MT502 -- to truly make your MC cart sound the way it should.
With a selectable turns ratio, you no longer need to match your cart with a step-up transformer. The MT502 will match almost any cart with its selectable turns ratio switch. It's like having two step up transformers in one unit. The 12:1 is designed to work with carts like the Denon DL103 or 103R or similar. The 30:1 is designed to work with carts that need more gain/level.
The "mu" stands for Mu Metal as that is the new metal now encasing the 2019 MT502 transformers. MU Metal is one of the best shielding materials known. The new transformers are hand wound, potted, encased in MU Metal and then placed into a copper chassis that has been gold plated. This is all done one at a time, by hand.
