In the Thread: How to run MM-type cartridge into MC phonostage?
Post Subject: Blueberry Hill Audio CompanyPosted by Romy the Cat on: 11/17/2011

Thanks, Paul.

I never saw this company. I did call today to the guy who run it and had longer conversation with him then I intended. Size and shape wise it was exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately he does not do matching transformer but only step up transformers. I am sure that it would be possible to get him the enclosure and to have someone to wind the transformers but I do not want to commit myself with a custom project with unpredictable results.

BTW, this Blueberry Hill Audio Company has a very elegant in my view idea: a 75dB gain phonocorector built in-line, of cause with external power supply.

The guy who runs the shop told that it has passive correction, interesting, isn’t?  I have no idea how it’s all sound but this open a Pandora box for the concept of phono cable with built in RIAA correction. I like it. The company runner told me something that is kind of strange: he assured me that his phonostage designed in a way that cartridges that run into it do not require any loading matching. I do not know if he not truly understood what he was saying it I am a just a Moron. In my understanding cartridge loading is not the responsibility of correction but the way to damp mechanical resonances in cartridge coil. He however assured me that he knows all of it and his phonostage is made in unique way to deal with it. It is kind of regretful that I have no interest in phono correctors or I would look into it.
