Music Hall pa2.2 Phono Preamplifier

The swiss army knife of phono preamps

The Music Hall PA2.2 is a phono preamp, a headphone amp, preamplifier, and an analog to digital converter all in one.

A phono preamp has a pretty simple job: boost the tiny signal coming from your turntable so you can hear the warm, detailed analog sounds etched into your records. The Music Hall PA2.2 does that admirably well, but it does a lot more.

First of all, the PA2.2 works with both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges, so it can handle your current turntable, and whatever you might get in the future. If you’d like to hook up a tape deck or CD player, there’s a second set of RCA inputs so you can enjoy them as well.

Digitize your records without losing that vinyl mojo

There’s also a built-in Type B USB port that feeds crystal-clear 24-bit/96kHz digital output to your computer, where you can save each track as a digital file. A superb Wolfson analog-to-digital converter ensures that those files will sound rich and full and, well, vinyl-like.

Variable volume control adds versatility

Like all phono preamps, the PA2.2 has a fixed line output for connecting to a receiver, integrated amp, or powered speakers – basically anything with its own volume control. As an unexpected bonus, it also offers variable output so you can connect directly to a power amp and control the volume with the PA2.2’s built-in volume knob. That’s an added degree of versatility and control that audiophiles love.

And, for those times when you need to retreat into your own lush musical hideaway and leave the outside world in silence, the PA2.2 offers a way to plug in any pair of headphones with a 1/4″ jack.

Need a cable?

This phono preamp does not come with an RCA cable to connect to your receiver or amp.
