The phono preamp is a critical link in the analogue signal chain. The right preamp will compliment the sonic characteristics of your cartridge and will help you get the most from your turntable rig. External preamps tend to have lower noise floors than those built into consumer-grade stereo receivers, so upgrading will yield heightened clarity, deeper bass, and sweeter highs; ultimately you'll get a more lifelike response. We've got tube and solid state phono preamps, all with varying strengths that cater to the specific preferences of close listeners. As always, we welcome your call if you're looking for a recommendation.
