Music Hall Mini
Phono preamplifier for moving magnet and moving coil cartridges
Our take on the Music Hall Mini by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Get your turntable connected right
The Music Hall Mini phono preamp makes a great choice for connecting your turntable to a receiver, integrated amp, or shelf system that lacks a phono input. Along with its standard audio connections, the Mini also boasts a 3.5mm minijack output — perfect for plugging in a pair of powered speakers.
The turntable experts at Music Hall gave the Mini premium quality parts to deliver the warm, relaxed sound that vinyl is famous for. Its compact all-metal body rejects interference to ensure clean sound, and the gold-plated RCA inputs and outputs resist corrosion for the best possible signal transfer.

Phono Preamp: The Music Hall Mini phono preamp allows you to connect a turntable to today's home receiver's and amplifier which do not offer a dedicated phono input.
MM or MC Cartridge Compatible: The Music Hall Mini phono preamp cane be used with moving magnet and high output moving coil cartridges.
RIAA Equalization: The Music Hall Mini is designed to amplify an RIAA equalized phono signal to a line-level signal.
Analog Inputs & Outputs: The Music Hall Mini is fitted with a stereo RCA input and output. It also features a stereo minijack (3.5mm) output.
Ground Terminal: The Mini phono preamp has a turntable ground, in case your turntable has a separate ground lead. This provides shielding to the tone-arm and the sensitive circuitry in the turntable.
External Power Supply: The Mini phono preamp operates off of standard household AC current, using the supplied AC power adapter. The external power adapter is separate from the phono preamp to further improve sound quality.
