    Hi All,

    On the above amp. I have a pair of analogue inputs specifically labelled PHONO. The manual refers to this as somewhere you can connect a turntable. Fair enough. However, it doesn't say whether these inputs are expecting the singal to be pre-amplified or not.

    Anybody know ? I'm looking to buy a turntable as all my vinyl ain't dead yet, but need to know whether I'm looking for a turntable with the pre-amp or not.

    Cheers

    Ian

    Sony STR-VA555ES Phono input does not require a pre-amplified signal, an ordinary turntable will suffice.

    make sure the turntable has a moving magnet cartridge - moving coil ones will need a step up transformer still..(unless it's switchable on the amp)
