Turntable -> phono preamp -> amp -> speakers/headphone


Note that while this is generally true, this particular TT, the Numark TTUSB, has a built in phono preamp, with a phono/line switch. I'm sure the built in phono preamp can be bettered by even one of the $50 models, but strictly speaking, the TT can be connected directly to an amp with the rear panel switch in the LINE position.
