Why do I need a preamp?
A phono pre-amplifier is designed to boost the signal from a turntable before it is passed to your Hi-Fi amplifier or receiver. Typically the signal output from a record player is quite weak, and it is necessary for it to be boosted before it hits the main amplifier of your hi-fi system. 
Some turntables and amplifiers have a phono preamp built into them, but more often than not, a dedicated preamp such as this is required to bring the low-level signal to a level that an amplifier can work with.

Many music lovers prefer to use a dedicated phono preamp in place of the one built into their equipment for performance and quality reasons. By using a dedicated phono amplifier, you're getting a cleaner and stronger signal from your turntable.

Subtle Amplification
When working with such low-level signals, subtly and precision are key to achieving an accurate and clean sound. The PHO-8 meets the high demands for analogue audio playback. The design of the preamp's housing has been created to fit the Vincent premiumLine. High-quality workmanship and outstanding value are self-evident.

Noise-Free Sound
As with its predecessor, the power supply is housed in an external unit, separate from where the processing happens. Like the main unit, the power supply is specially designed to avoid hum interference and unwanted noise. The isolated power supply supplies the phono unit with "clean current". The selective choice of the other components in this unit results in a signal with very low noise.

The PHO-8 is designed to suit almost every commercially available pick-up system. The switch on the front selects either Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC) mode, to suit the cartridge of your turntable.
