RE: Schematic


That MM stage has more than adequate gain for the majority of MM/MI, and high output MC carts.. The additional 12AX7 MC gain stage (looks like grounded grid, with a large lytic as input coupling cap that has been bypassed with small film - cap quality here is critical) might make the the signal to noise ratio more compromised compared to a properly set up high quality step-up transformer.. But you could still try that MC pre stage with a low output MC, just to hear it for yourself first..

Good luck..
