I was wondering if any of you have experience with a Moving Coil turntable connected to an A/V receiver. The turntable I am looking at, the Music Hall MMF-9.1, is a Moving Coil turntable, which outputs at a level lower than a standard turntable...but I am not sure if this will be enough to work with the Phono input on my AVR.
Specifically, the Phono input on the AVR is for a Moving Magnet cartridge; from what I understand a pre-preamp needs to be installed between the turntable and the AVR in order to work with a Moving Coil cartridge.
This leaves me with a few options:
1. Buy the turntable and use it as-is, albeit at lower levels with the Phono input of the AVR;
2. Purchase a Moving Coil pre-preamp and feed it into the Phono input of the AVR;
3. Buy a phono stage that has 2 pre sections (MC pre-preamp to Phono-level and then Phono-level to line-level) and then feed the AUX input of the AVR;
Which would be best and why? I'm getting into vinyl but have nothing to play old records with!
