If you needed a phono preamp you wouldn't have ANY noise from your records. What is your equipment - turntable, amplifier in particular?

You don't need one. They are for use with amplifiers that don't have a built-in Phono input, yours does.

Some albums are louder than others - it's how they are recorded and produced.

Not a daft question at all.

A phono stage deals with frequency equalisation and usually increases the signal level from a cartridge to roughly equate to other sources.

As MIB says, your amp has one so adding an external one might increase quality, but won't change the basics.

I'm sure that I and others could suggest ways to 'better' your system, but it's not in any way bad by a long stretch.

Hang around here and best of all, try to get to a few get togethers of like-minded lunatics and get a feel for what you are aiming at.

Alternatively, just buy some more music and enjoy it.

No such thing as a daft question...
What is the right age to teach my dog about sex?

And how do I post a question on this forum?

Why do my balls smell of ham even though I shower every day?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Richard.

Could you offer advice on this conundrum - I enjoy watching Porky Pig cartoons. Is this Halal?

The original question was fine. I was referring to the "what is your turntable and amplifier" question from a 2368 poster wammer when its written on the left.
Don't worry, at least one of us got it :^

Depends on whether you get a semi or not.

Porky Pig is Haram (forbidden).

This is on two counts:

He is a pig.

He stands on his hind legs an talks like a man.

As a non-Muslim (what does that mean?) I personally think he is unsuitable for stud, so I'd eat him myself. But I like cartoons and his dislike for that long eared carrot eating twat chimes in with my own predjudices so he may have his uses. In fact the question has left me genuinely conflicted. Damn you Sir!
