Boasting the same great quality performance as our iconic Phono Box, except now there's the addition of a high-quality A/D converter.

Please Note: You will need interconnect cables to connect this phono stage to your amplifier. When using the LINE input on the Phono Box USB V, we do not recommend using the analogue RCA output to listen to the source. This input is only fully supported when transferring the audio signal over USB to a computer for recording. The RCA output is only for use with a turntable that has been connected to the RCA phono input.

Now at the same time as listening to your music through your traditional hi-fi, you can record your vinyl to a computer or laptop, which will later allow you to transfer your music to your iPod or other digital music source. The front-facing attenuator on the unit allows for full control over the gain of your USB signal; this can help avoid distorted and/or 'clipping' recordings. This unit also benefits from a Line input, allowing you to record Line-Level sources, such as a tape deck, to your computer as well.

Q: Can I play my turntable through my computer/laptop using USB without recording?
A: To play records in Audacity without recording, make sure 'software playthrough' is enabled in the Transport menu, then right click the right-hand recording VU meter with the microphone symbol, which turns on "monitoring". Click in the meter again if you want to turn monitoring off.
