I see there is a button on the back to move from MM to MC.

Does this work?

Hi Jaxxon.   I saw the same at first but it is blanked off.   
I am sure the MC MM version in the same casework is on the horizon.

Hi Audioears

I havenít had the time to listen to the unit myself. But I am led to believe it is a substantial improvement on the old model. The biggest difference is in the build in 220V power supply, with minor improvements on the actual MM circuitry.

Below a link to a review on the old model. This should give some indication where the unit fit into the market and performance

Spot on G.

We hope to have the MM/MC version available by December/Early Jan 2019
