    I'm looking for a phono pre-amp for a decent consumer grade Technics SLQ200 turntable and Audio Technica 311EP MM. I can't justify spending a lot of money but I also don't want the pre-amp to be the week link in the chain. I've looked at budget Pyle, and Behringer pre's but have concerns on...

    I have the Denon AVR X4000 and use it's phono pre-amp stage with my TT. Would anyone venture a guess as to what price range I'd have to start at for an external pre to improve on what the Denon has?

    Anyone using this pre-amp? https://emotiva.com/products/pres-and-pros/xps-1 I was thinking about trying it out so I was wondering if anyone here has it and would it be better than the pre-amp that is in my Onkyo 809 now. The price is very reasonable. Any info would be appreciated.

    I have been looking at phono pre-amps for my turntable and most are lacking in details in their spec pages. What do you own and what would you recommend. I am currently leaning towards this one as it has a subsonic filter...

    Hello all, I currently have an Onkyo TX-SR876 which I use for both movies and music. One of the sources connected to it is a pro-ject xpressionIII comfort turntable (somewhat comparable to the current debut carbon, I think: carbon tonearm, ortofon 2m red). It is currently connected to the phono...

    Looks like Emotiva came out with what they are calling a "High Performance Phono Preamp". This is a very competitive market in what is now in my opinion a 'niche' product world of LP listeners. Their price is very competitive and the unit looks well built. Has anyone already tried this...

    I noticed that the Behringer PP400 phono preamp is available for $20. My experience with their stuff has been pretty positive, especially considering the low price. Has anybody here used one? How does it sound?

    Hello, I have been setting up my new Onkyo 709 and must say I'm quite impressed, this is my first HDMI receiver, it's a little confusing but I'm getting it under control. I have a question about the 709 phono input, it says I can use the phono input with an outboard phono preamp if I turn...

    My father-in-law recently dug out his old turntable and boxes of LPs, but realized that his Marantz receiver didn't have a phono input. Knowing that I spend alot of time reading the audio forums, he asked me what would be a good preamp and the best way to convert his LPs to MP3 format. Since I...
