Phono Box USB V‚ Project Box
The same great quality performance as our highly respected Phono Box II, except now there's the addition of a high-quality A/D converter!
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.
Metal case shields the electronics from vibrational and electromagnetic interference.
Small size allows installation close to record player.
Special low-noise ICs used.
Optimal channel separation through dual-mono circuitry.
Gold plated RCA connection sockets.
Outboard power supply included.
Amplification and RIAA equalisation for MM and MC cartridges
Digitalisation of analog signals for recording direct to disk via USB with suitable recording programs
Automatic recognition, without additional driver, by standard PC
Runs on Windows® and Mac OS® operating systems
