I need a phono pre-amp?


Record players produce a relatively low signal compared to other stereo components. I’m sure there’s a good reason for this, but I don’t know it.

What this means is that if I were to plug it directly into the Sonos player, it would be way too quiet. Even with the volume all the way up.

This is fixed by running the signal through a phono pre-amp. After scouring Amazon, I bought this one:

Once it was ready to go, I just plugged the Dual 1229 into the pre-amp and the pre-amp straight into the Sonos line-in. Worked perfectly.
