Phono Preamplifiers

A phono preamplifier is an electronic device that amplifies and equalizes the analog output of the cartridge in a phonograph turntable. Typically built into an A/V receiver, phono preamps also come as external devices for units without phono inputs as well as for audiophiles who want the highest-quality restoration.
