Do I need a separate phono stage?
I'm buying a Pro-Ject Debut III turntable, and I'm unsure whether I need a separate phono stage. I'm a huge music fan, but not an audiophile, by the way, so I hope you'll bear with me, as I know very little about hi-fi.
My amp is a Cambridge Audio A500. It has a channel for aux/phono, but I don't know if this means there's a separate phono preamp in there or not. Little help?
