RE: Curious

I can't speak for others, but I've had fewer noise issues with step-up transformers..... The biggest issue I've had with high-gain active MC stages is getting startled by them picking up "two-way radio" communications. (This didn't happen often, but when it did happen, it's sudden and *loud*. Like "clip the amplifier" loud.) And sometimes radio stations faintly audible in the background noise.

I've also had several experiences with MC cartridges "dropping a channel" using active MC stages, but never had such an experience using step-up transformers.
