Standalone DAC to Vintage Reciever Phono In

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Whilst going through my grandparents house I found a vintage Sansui 7070 in excellent working condition and some real nice speakers as well. My sweet grandmother was kind enough to let me take it back to my college apartment. biggrin.gif





(Phono in is covered by those plugs and is to the right of GND and above TAPE-1)

My setup would go

Computer > Standalone DAC > Sansui 7070 - Phono in > AKG 701 | Speakers | ATH-A900

Now I understand that phono is uses low voltages, but how low are we talking about? Would a DAC that outputs about maximum 1.5V RMS overload phono in?
Should I use TAPE-1 or AUX instead?

Use AUX.

Yes, a phono specific input uses a RIAA filter which is a standardized filter (EQ setting I guess?) for use with turn tables. Don't ask me for a much better explanation than that though.. Suffice to say, it won't sound right any other source or DAC. So yah, use the AUX.
