Mediator 20

(2 customer reviews)


The Mediator 20 is a plug & play step-up transformer with a turn ratio of 1:20. The RCA cinch connectors are high quality rhodium over silver plated connectors. The Mediator transformers are fully custom built. We have searched a long time to find a transformer equal or better than the Haufe transformer that was used in the previous Mediator. After a lot of listening and testing we designed a fantastic sounding step up transformer.

The Mediator 20 sounds sparkling, has a beautiful midrange with lots of detail and space. In short, we think the Mediator 20 is one of the best step-up transformers available. The Step-up ratio of the Mediator 20 is  1:20 which makes a perfect match with  low output MC cartridges with an output voltage up to approx. 0,35 mVolt such as the Ortofon SPU.
Note: this is a custom made product. It is made to order and therefore we cannot accept returns.

How to calculate the Step-up gain for MC cartridges.
The gain of a step-up is specified in dBs. When you multiply the gain of the step-up with the output voltage of your element, you have the gain at the Phono amplifier. For most elements up to 0.35 mVolt output voltage you need a step-up ratio of 1:20 (27 dB). Above 0.35 mVolt a step-up ratio of 1:10 (20 dB) is recommended.

Turn Ratio:   1:20
Frequentierespons: 10 Hz – 80 kHz/ -1 dB.
T.H.D.: 20 Hz: <0,006 %
High Permeability Nickel Core.
Double Shielded.
Dimension: 100 x 54 x 75 mm. (LxHxW)

    One word: Enchanting!
    When I unpacked the red jewelry box and connected it to my system, I was ill prepared for the shock – and awe – of a lifetime. In duet with my Shindo Giscours preamplifier, which is in a much, much higher price bracket, the pair sang more beautifully than any choral work and presented music in a full-bodied way than did Ben Webster when he ‘met’ Gerry Mulligan. Your creation is, it would seem, now the most important link in the chain of my arguably ‘high-end’ system. And all of this for a price which can only arise out of a philosophy and not a marketing strategy. You have indeed reached out to the mass with a true ‘audiophile’ component, a jewel of a product Für Das Volk.

    Great Transformer! I makes my SPU meister MKII sing ! It beats the triple priced Ortofon ST80 in musical performance with an SPU. Highly recommended!
