phono input

The primary function of the phono input

Science and technology has made a considerable amount of progress and has gifted mankind with numerous inventions and revolutionary innovations. Among them was the invention of the telephone. If for a moment we take a look at the etymology of the word ‘telephone’ we will see that it arrives from ‘tele’ which means ‘far’ and ‘phone’ which means ‘sound, or voice’. The basic construction of the device consisted of a phono input. The basic work of the phono input was to restore and boost the analog signals and also prove the RIAA equalization. This process was very important in order to convert the signals restore them in their original sounds. The phono input was therefore very important and was an indispensible part of the whole system.

The modern usages of the phono input

Nowadays, in most of the modern sound processing systems and units there is a phono input. Generally this is installed on the back side of the device. In the modern days “phono input” usually implies to a set of input jacks. These are generally located on the reverse side of the amplifiers, mixers, preamp with the help of this a turntable or a phonograph is generally attached. As a matter of fact, throughout the late 90’s this input system was widely used on a variety of systems and devices. The ‘phono input’ was in fact designed for the millivolt signals. And nowadays, almost all the DJ mixers and have more than two phono inputs.
