Phono preamp:

Mr. Oldartq— Indeed. I have two preamps, but I want to use the PS Audio unit if I can figure out what's goofy. Since the Carver preamp works fine, it must be the PS Audio unit, so I guess I'll have to pop the cover and have a look around inside.

This is, in fact, part of a project to digitize some rarities from vinyl to AIFF. I've been looking at ADCs (analog-to-digital converters) but I am tempted to just use the one built into my 24" iMac.
