Re: Best phono pre-amp ? ::
|Originally posted by Badtz
I was thinking, maybe it would be better to take a phono signal [technics 1200] and use a separate pre-amp and bring it into the mixer @ line-level, then letting the mixer do the phono-preamp......
would this yield better sound quality? [for recording/etc.?]
any phono pre-amps I should loook into?
I am not clear what applications your are using your 1200 for. If you are speaking strictly home audio the philosophy I've followed is KISS - the shortest possible signal path to minimize corruption.
An example - one of my systems is as follows:
1200 TT -> phono stage -> amp -> speakers.
I even took out the preamp (amp has vol control).
The result was breathtaking - detailed, big soundstage and 3-d image with good instrument seperation.
If your application is commercial - disregard the before mentioned comment.
