Phono preamps don't get a lot better than this-- just a lot more expensive! This one is true reference quality, designed to extract every detail from your turntable and transport you to sonic nirvana! Audio Research has been making quality pieces like this for years and it shows. Remote control, MC or MM capable (works with the lowest output cartridges available with plenty of gain!). If you have a super system but a lesser phono pre, see what you've been missing! RCA or balanced outputs. RCA inputs only. Has the "plexi-top" they recommend for the best sound. You've heard the rest, now buy the best!! I have a new box on order as the current one was misplaced in a recent move. It is included in the price however! Paypal adds 3%. NEW, LOWER PRICE FOR QUICK SALE!
