Phono preamplifier with A/D converter and USB output

Record Box E: Pure vinyl listening pleasure plus recording functionality!

Record Box E is a high-quality phono preamplifier, that offers the possibility to convert your valuable vinyls into computer music data. Record Box E accepts both MM & MC cartridges and gives audiophile music experience at an entry level price. The integrated A/D converter operates with Windows and MAC operating systems and connects via USB to your computer. Therefore your valuable vinyl collection can be digitised, especially for use in portable music players. Advanced circuitry and SMD construction keep noise and distortion at a surprisingly low level. A built-in internal shielding and an outboard DC power supply leave no risk for external interference. Because of its small casing, Record Box E can be placed near the turntable. Input and output sockets are gold-plated for preservation of quality. Record Box E can be connected easily to a line-input (AUX etc) of your amplifier.
