J33 turntable direct box with active preamp is for the discerning turntablist – be it for sampling, live performance, or simply sitting down to listen to some tunes on a Sunday afternoon.
Designed specifically for dynamic cartridges, J33 begins with a low noise front end. Inputs are standard RCA with the required turntable ground lug. A precise RIAA low pass filter is tailored to produce a smooth, warm response. The signal is then buffered to provide the audio system with a standard -10dB signal with choice of RCA connectors for compatibility with home HiFi entertainment systems, 3.5mm (1/8″) output to feed a laptop or iPod, or a stereo TRS ¼” jack for an audio recorder.
A second set of direct box XLR outputs deliver a mic level signal to feed a multicore, mic splitter and mixing desk preamp inputs. A rumble filter is also available for high sound pressure environments to reduce bothersome resonant feedback.
