About our Phono Preamplfier

How can something so simple be so hard to do? After all, the phono preampliers only job is to take the audio signal from the turntable and pass it to the preamplifier. But, it turns out it isn't that easy and thats why phono preamplifiers are considered one of the most difficult audio products to design and build. It only has one job, but it turns out that job is pretty hard to do right. When playing a record, the turntable creates a complex but very tiny audio signal which needs to be boosted before being sent to the stereo. Doing this requires a very high quality and noise free power supply and circuitry in order to not damage the audio signal while it is adding boosting the gain. To make things even more complex, the audio signal itself must be slightly changed to account for equalization changes made to the music during the recording process. Sounds tough? It is! As our service technician says: "it is amazing vinyl works at all". Analog Audio is well known for its expertise in analog products. We know the difference between a great sounding phono preamplifier and simple marketing hype. Although the finest phone pramplifiers are not inexpensive, price alone does not determine the quality of a phono preamplifier. Whether this is your first turntable, or your crown jewel, we have the phono preamplifier and expertise to take your vinyl experience unforgettable.
