Hi - a couple of months back I purchased a Sony PS-FL1 TT - it's a cool little unit that has a slide out drawer, rather than a lift-up dust cover; great because I am placing it in a cabinet.
So, first issue that comes up is that I need a phono preamp, because my AVR doesn't have phono input. In looking at the preamps I became confused as to how to choose one - I posted on this forum and some responses were that I should choose based on the specs of my cartridge.
I talked to the guy I bought the TT from and he said that he had changed out the needle, but that the cartridge was likely the original - thus, I believe it to be a Sony VL-5. But, I can't find any specs on it.
If anyone could help with this, it would be appreciated.
I love it when a [HT] plan comes together!
