T12 will not work well if your turntable has built-in preamp. Avoiding noise please keep T12 away from cellphones, routers and other signals. The sound will not loud if you MC cartridge is with low impedance and voltage output, it is more suitable for MC cartridge whose impedance is not less than 100

Product Features

  • Exceptional signal-to-noise ratio and very low distortion bring high quality sound and make you feel the original audio
  • High-end design and making technology, mini compact size makes it convenient to be carried and full-metal casing feels texture
  • It is not only a phono preamp but also a headphone amplifier, and it supports both Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil(MC) cartridges, you can achieve many functions with it
  • LINE OUTPUT will be auto off if the headphone jack is connected. Turntable GND cable must be connected to T12's GND jack, and the background noise can be greatly decreased if T12's GND jack is connected to the ground
