Sonneteer's high-quality Sedley phono stage has joined the growing ranks of audiophile devices designed to talk to your computer. As well as the line outputs of the previous version, the Sedley now has a USB socket, meaning it can be used to record vinyl LPs to a computer.
What's more, the Sonneteer can also act as a USB preamplifier, feeding sound from the computer into a hi-fi system. The unit comes complete with a USB cable and recording software, and is compatible with both PCs and Macs.
It works with both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges, with selectable loading, and comes in standard 43cm wide casework. The Sedley USB sells for £650.
