Musical Fidelity MX-Vinyl Phono Stage Sweepstakes

Register to win a Musical Fidelity MX-Vinyl Phono Stage we are giving away.

According to the company:

The MX-VYNL is a fully balanced, very high performance phono stage, able to operate with virtually any moving coil or moving magnet cartridge. With both traditional RCA inputs and our unique XLR fully balanced connection the MX-VYNL can be connected to 2 turntables simultaneously.

The MX-VNYL offers a wide range of input impedance settings for moving coil cartridges as well as several capacitance settings for moving magnet units. Unlike many of our competitors units the MX-VYNL allows easy adjustment of these settings while playing. This allows easy experimentation and tuning to find the optimum setting for all your equipment.

The MX-VYNL also includes our renowned RIAA correction that offers extremely accurate results to beyond 80kHz. That may sound extreme, but there is a good deal of information above 20 kHz that needs correction. If it isn’t corrected, it will show itself as ringing and overshoot.

With both extraordinarily low noise and exceptional overload margin the MX-VYNL can comfortably handle even the most demanding of cartridges and satisfy the most discerning of listeners.

Nice idea to be able to change the MC resistance while playing, to pick the best sound.

volvic's picture

Need one badly!!!!

I've only owned one Musical Fidelity product thus far, which was the M6 PRE. While it didn't match well with my other components, it was undeniably musical and lively. I'm curious what this phono pre sounds like... Good luck to all who enter!

theclipper's picture

Hot damn! That looks like one hell of a phono pre!!

mdiehl's picture

I have owned several Musical Fidelity products, including a MF A3.2 integrated amplifier and matching CD player and a phono preamplifier in a separate system. In all cases, I have been impressed by the quality of the products and the great price-to-value ratio. This new phono preamp looks very interesting.

Music is the greatest communication in the world.
Even if people don't understand the language that you're singing in,
they still know good music when they hear it.

And this MX unit looks like it will do the trick! Thanks for listening!

nelsonkiwi's picture

I would love to own this!

ptstucky's picture

I was just talking to my dad about getting cartridge loading right. The adjustable impedance settings on the MX-VNYL look very impressive - I'm sure he would have fun dialing it in!

Audiomutt's picture

That caught my attention. Know right where to put it.
Thanks for the opportunity.

ravenacustic's picture

I used to love this brand and owned a CDP at one time. I really like the continuous loading for this Phono Stage. It’s the best way to load a MC Cartridge.

So good luck to all the contestants but especially GOOD LUCK TO ME!!!!

avanti1960's picture

dolsey01's picture

Would love to own this!

drewmb1's picture

to dig it!

Runoutgroove's picture

Like the MC impedence knob and balanced input option. I think I read they have another model with the Nu-vista tube, which I think they offered in previous years in an amp that was a MF reference, if memory serves.
