Hi again all,

One of the engineers at KFJC really likes this product - use it with  
your own turntable or other analog and digital sources... I don't  
know the price but I think it may be around $100 US. You can find a  
local dealer at http://www.artproaudio.com

> The USB Phono Plus, (Formerly named the “USB Micro•PRE”) acts as an

> Line level signals and a low cut filter removes rumble and wind  
> noise while leaving the audio pristine. The front gain trim control
