Thinking of digging my old turntables out of the garage and see how my old vinyl collection sounds on my modern system. My avr is a Yamaha RX-A720 and it doesn't appear to have phono inputs. I'm assuming I just connect the turntable to the preamp, and the preamp to one of the audio inputs on my avr. Something budget minded. Also, is there anything out there that you can run the signal through to remove the clicks and pops inherent in vinyl?

The ART DJPre II Phono Preamplifier is one of the better options available under $100.

For pops and clicks you could watch eBay for one of the old Burwen/KLH or SAE noise filter units. Careful though... most of them that pop up for sale are the general noise filter variety, which is not what you want. You want one of the transient noise filters; I believe the models #s were 7000A and 5000A or something very close to that. Avoid the 1201A.

There are computer programs to process the sound and remove undesirable events to a great degree, but those are very expensive programs designed for professional mastering work.


Electronic filters modify the sound too much and I would stay away from them.


One of the best phono preamps you can get is the Musical Fidelity V-LPS, which is excellent, but it is $199. It is a bargain at that price, but not real cheap.


The Bellari VP-29 is $76 at Needle Doctor. That is about the cheapest one that is worth a toot IMO.
