    Anyone after a step up transformer?
    A new setup means my Sound Tradition Live! MC10 is for sale. Built in 2014 it uses Hashimoto HM-3 with 26DB of fixed gain.
    It's in mint condition.
    Photos on request and a couple of reviews can be found online.
    £750 and postage.

    For anyone who is a bit unclear what these are, the Hashimotos are absolute top step-up transformers, with two gain ratios, 1:20 for fairly mainstream output/impedance MC cartridges (AT, Lyra, Shelter, Dynavector, Miyajima, Denon and so on) and 1:40 ratio for low output, low-impedance cartridges such as Ortofon SPU (and many other Ortofons) as well as Ikeda/Fidelity Research and the like. Principal difference between HM3 and HM7 is that the latter's ratios are 1:15 and 1:30, though in the real world, many cartridges are probably quite happy using either.

    Thanks Montesquieu, couldn't have put it better although I probably should have had a go myself before now. Much appreciated.

    I'll try and link some photos at the weekend.

    Jeez. Bargain alert. Looks really nicely put together.

    I see it's fixed gain at 1:20 I'm sure for reasons of maximising sound quality but could be easily reconfigured for 1:40 should that be a requirement.

    1:20 probably a match for the majority of cartridges out there with the exception of very low output/very low impedance.

    Thanks Montesquieu, it is a nice thing but since I'm not using it and now want something else... (most of us know the sketch)

    How much are these new? And does it have the original box.

    I bought one in December 2011 and it was $1,090 delivered. Can’t remember how much I got hit with vat and duty (usually another 25% or so). I think Isao (who ran Sound Tradition) put a lower value on the paperwork to help out.

    Goldenmouse is about right I think. Plenty can be found online about them. In 2008 it was listed at $990. This one was produced in 2014- can't tell you what the price was I'm afraid as I am the second owner. I don't have the original box. There are a number of reviews which you might be interested in Saab.

    The box was just a generic cardboard box with bubble wrap etc - no fancy branded packaging or instructions etc.
