TerraTec: New life for ancient vinyl treasures with the phono PreAmp


Who's not confronted with the familiar problem of having old vinyl LP'S somewhere in the attic ?! Actually you'd love to restore and digitise your all time favourites and probably even burn them onto CD's. So far this has been pretty complicated, but now German sound card manufacturer TerraTec presents an easy solution at a more than reasonable price: TerraTec's phono PreAmp is, like the name already indicates, a pre amplifier to work as an interface between record player and sound card.

Usually restoring or reworking of vinyl longplayers with a PC requires the usage of an HiFi- amplifier, because (analogue) record players and sound cards work with using different audiosignals. TerraTec's phono PreAmp now offers a true alternative. It's not even necessary to open the PC, the phono PreAmp is an external box, perfectly shielded.

Simply connect the record player through the phono PreAmp with the sound card – and off you go! No need for a power supply, the energy is already provided by the game port of the sound card. Also, in terms of sound quality, wishes do come true, the phono PreAmp is by far superior to most HiFi- amplifiers. To optimally adapt the moving magnet pick up of the record player, the three commonest input capacities are selectable in steps. And, real power comes from the output amplification, also selectable in three steps. The filter function with precision RIAA noise reduction curve guarantees an optimal preparation of the pick up signal and thus for perfect listening pleasures.

Technical Details:
suitable for all record players with moving magnet (MM) pick ups
external, shielded case
easy to connect to the sound card
selectable input capacity and output amplification
hardware design and components parts of highest quality
precise RIAA equalizer function for natural playback
Signal-to-noise-ratio:> 86 dB (A)
power supply through sound card gameport
gameport is looped through
