The Sequel mk4 is designed and assembled in Europe using a multi-layer PCB fitted with high-quality mini-MELF resistors, WIMA capacitors and low-noise active circuitry. This makes it ideally suited for Moving Magnet cartridge amplification. To maintain top performance under all circumstances, a capacitance-multiplying filter circuitry is used to maintain ultra-low power supply power and stability.
The Sequel mk4 phono pre-amplifier replaces the internal “LINK” PCB and its function is to boost the signal level and changes the frequency response according to the RIAA standard. It has been developed to simplify the user experience and provide flexibility to match most types of popular cartridges.
Cartridge compatibility recommendation is just a rough guide to allow the average modulation of a vinyl disc to drive the amplifier to maximum rated power. Creek amplifiers range in power from 40 to 120 Watts into 8 Ohms, depending on the model.
Not only can it be switched for 40dB or 50dB gain, but the user can also select 100pF or 200pF input capacitance and IEC low-frequency roll-off, with a simple piano key switch!
The Sequel mk4 is flexible enough to match a wide range of MM and high-output MC cartridges. It is not suitable for medium to low output MC cartridges, which require lower matching impedance and higher gain.
A Sequel mk4 phono pre-amplifier is suitable for use with the following Creek Integrated amps and pre-amps from 1993 onwards. To make sure the Sequel mk4 suits your Creek amplifier, please read the definitive list below:
