Phono Amp

Phono Amp

Also called Phono Stage. Since the electric currents generated by a pickup are extremely small, they have to be pre-amplified specifically. In addition, bass and treble are not cut equally loudly into the groove, which is why a mirror image equalization takes place during playback, which puts all sound components back into the correct relationship to each other.
