PARKS AUDIO Budgie Step Up Transformer CineMag Blue Print CMQEE-3440AH $360


Recommended Posts


Parks Audio - Budgie MC Cartridge Step Up Transformer . Transformers made by CineMag CMQEE-3440AH and are simular to Bob's Devices units at a much lower price. 


The Budgie Step Up Transformer (SUT) now showcases the fantastic Cinemag CMQEE-3440AH transformer. These transformers are constructed with superior laminations that Cinemag has reserved over the years for devices requiring the lowest distortion and highest clarity. In fact these are the same laminations that are used in the top of the line CM1254 and CM1131 transformers. It has two gain settings and a ground lift switch for maximum flexibility. 

3440AH is basically the 3440A built with better laminations. The sound from the Blue version is a step above the Red version.


Switchable for 1:16 (24 dB gain) or 1:30 (30 dB gain).

Into a standard 47k phono preamp, the effective input impedance of the low gain (1:16 ratio) is 184 ohms. At 1:30, the effective input impedance is 52 ohms.

Shannon would be able to answer that... he's very fast with email responses or he's on Facebook 

Too lazy to do that.  Just curious but not willing to put forth any effort to get an answer.  Lol.


Definitely don't do fakebook.

I'm assuming that this is for a TT correct?


Could this be used like an Art Cleanbox where you need more signal when using pro with consumer level electronics?


Yes, it's for a turntable.MC cartridges can be used without having to use an MC PHONO PRE.
