Esoteric Sounds Rek-O-Kut Professional Phono Preamp MKIV
Great Affordable PreampAdd a turntable to an amplifier that has no phono input or a second turntable to an amplifier with only one phono input. The REK-O-KUT Professional Moving Magnet Preamp can be used to convert any AUX input to phono use. The Professional Moving Magnet Preamp is designed for both home as well as broadcast and studio applications.
The REK-O-KUT Professional Moving Magnet Preamp will make it possible to use a line level input on any amplifier or mixing console for playback with a turntable that is equipped with a conventional, moving magnet phono cartridge. Typical input sensitivities of such inputs are roughly 250 mVolts, and the outputs of typical moving magnet cartridges is about 3.5 mVolts. The preamp boosts the level of the magnetic cartridge and also applies "record compensation" in the form of the RIAA curve. This adjusts the relative levels of bass and treble to match that of modern records. Used with the Esoteric Sound Re-Equalizer, it makes a fully adjustable playback system for vintage and mono records.

Very happy with this preamp. I had been looking for one for a while to set up my turntable after many years without being able to listen to my records. Great sound, simple set up, nice small size so it's easy to tuck it out of the way. All for a good price. I'm happy enough with this that I am about to order a second one for my other turntable.
