Maybe it's upgrade time. Out with the MM cartridge, and in with the new high resolution MC model. The Bryston TF-2 is the perfect companion that will bridge the gap between your perfectly fine low-gain MM stage and your new low output cartridge. By providing either 20dB or 31dB of gain (your choice at time of order) without the use of any active circuitry, you can get just the boost you need with superb clarity and virtually no added distortion. The Bryston TF-2 is a top quality step-up-a difference you'll hear right from the first listen.
- Available in 20 or 31dB gain
- Totally passive gain stage
- Use with existing MM gain stage when using low to medium output cartridges

Well, nothing was amiss as the Rega / Bryston combo presented the music with immaculate precision, and, most importantly, it was super fun. “Play That Funky Music” indeed, fittingly, the title of the monster single from the album. The mood stayed vintage, and next up was Traffic’s brilliant self titled second album from 1968, on United Artists. I never thought this United Artists pressing was stellar, but I had to reconsider after hearing it via the Bryston. http://novohighend.com/bryston-bp-2-mm-mc-phono-preamp-with-the-ps-3-power-supply/
The Bryston BP-2 with the PS-3 external power supply, at $2700 for the combo, is a steal in my opinion. Call us crazy, but we feel it competes with far more expensive phono stages especially where a good part of the price is allocated to big, impressive enclosures, and quasi-exotic parts in non critical areas.
