StereoWise: Brands of Phono - Preamplifiers


R.I.A.A. = Recording Industry Association of America ( standard )

A RIAA or phono preamplifier is a device that amplifies and equilizes the signal of the cartridge so that it is properly processed and can be sent as a line signal to the audio amplifier. Every turntable or record player needs a phono amplifier before the signal enters the amplifier, Sometimes the phono stage is already built into the amplifier, but often a separate phono stage or phono amplifier has to be placed between the turntable and the ( pre ) amplifier.
