Record Box E


The Record Box E is a high quality phono preamplifier that accepts both MM and MC cartridges and gives audiophile music experience at an entry-level price. It can also convert your vinyl into digital format with the integrated A/D converter and USB output connection. Fully compatible with Windows and Mac with no drivers required.

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 minimise the risk of external interference. Input and output sockets are gold-plated for optimal quality.
