Rolls VP29 Phono Preamp
I have a harmon kardon avr 700 receiver and a dual cs 505-4 turntable with a shure v-15 mm cartridge. Will I be able to utilize the rolls vp29 with this configuration?
If the turntable only has a phono output and the receiver does not have a dedicated phono input, this preamp is what you will need in order for it to work properly with that receiver.

Will this work with a FR3060 Turntable?
this should work fine with that turn table. It appears to use standard cartridges so there is not problems that i can see.

Right pre-amp for Record Player?
I have an Record Player which has the usual red/white RCA cable output. It has a small volume knob on the back of the record player, but no other control for sound level or quality. I'm looking for the right Pre-amp and system so that I can amplify the sound to the speakers with a good RIAA curve, but I'd also like something where I can control the volume better...maybe from the pre-amp?If the Rolls VP29 Phono Preamp the right product or should I consider a different set up?
Question 1: What type of output does your phono put out? Some models have an internal pre-amp. If it has a volume knob, than this might be the case. (It is an extremely unusual feature.) There are many dozens of ways to lay out a system. I can't help you more without a better idea of what you actually have. The complete signal path is something like:cartridge --> MC step-up (if required) --> RIAA --> volume control --> pre-amp (optional --> crossover (if active and required) --> amplifiers --> crossover (if passive and required) --> speakers.The most obnoxious way to solve all that is to take a turntable with a built-in pre-amp and connect it directly to a pair of active speakers, such as a set of computer speakers and call it a day. =P
