Esoteric Sound is marketing a new preamp under the Rek-O-Kut name.
The preamp retails for $99 plus shipping and is promoted as suitable for audiophile archival work in both broadcast and home studio use.
"Add one or two turntables to an amplifier that has no phono input, or a second turntable to an amplifier with only one phono input," the company states. The unit can be used to convert an Aux input to phono use. A switch sets up for one turntable for LP and one for 78s, or one turntable for both types. The output can be connected to a computer sound card.
The firm says the preamp applies accurate "record compensation" in the form of the RIAA curve or the most common 78 RPM record curve. The curve is adjustable with a front-panel switch that adjusts the relative levels of bass and treble to match that of modern records or of vintage 78s and early radio broadcast transcriptions.
