Esoteric Sounds Rek-O-Kut Audiophile Archival Preamp: Professional Moving Magnet Preamp
Rek-O-Kut Audiophile Archival PreampAdd one or two turntables to an amplifier that has no phono input or a second turntable to an amplifier with only one phono input. The REK-O-KUT Audiophile Archival Preamp can be used to convert any AUX input to phono use. A Rear panel switch sets up for one turntable for LP and one for 78s, or one turntable for both types of record. If desired, connect the output of the preamp directly to a computer sound card. It is designed for both home as well as broadcast and studio applications.
The preamp also applies accurate “record compensation” in the form of the RIAA curve or the most common 78 RPM record curve. This equalization curve is adjustable with the front panel Equalization switch. This adjusts the relative levels of bass and treble to match that of modern records or of vintage 78s and early radio broadcast transcriptions.

Works great ! Very quiet unit that performs very well with both RIAA for 33 1/3 and 78 recordings. A really great, budget priced performer. If you need a versatile, reliable phono pre-amp, this one is a steal!
