January 2016 - Out with the old in with the new!

(hide)

Here at Phoenix things are getting old, really old! As a result equipment such as our turntable preamplifier have worn out and stopped functioning as expected. The Alice Phonopak 2 which was about 15+ years old began to give a loud humming noise which meant it had to be retired from service.

It's pictured here:

Once again we can now play out our vinyl collection on air.

I tried to replace the faulty unit with the same make and model but was unable to contact the original manufacturer so had to source an alternative. Many of the boxes we use are made by Sonifex Ltd so I checked to see if they had a turntable preamp and they had. It's the RB-PA2 (link). Below is my picture with the Front Panel Rack Mount Kit (RB-RK1) fitted to the unit.
