Silver Finish Advisory; We've recently received several buyer reports that the silver model images on this website do not match the actual color of products they have received. We've looked thru our inventory and must agree; the majority of our current silver finish stock has a definite gold or sepia cast (see at right). Buyers should take this into account when choosing to order silver versions of our products. swatch
RIAA Phono Preamps
Good: TCC TC-400G/L Phono Preamp

TC-400G/L


$29.50 plus shipping

The TC-400G/L is a significant upgrade from the entry-level AC-powered preamps you'll find sold all over the internet; its external power supply provides excellent isolation against hum and noise.  Additional features include  a ground wire terminal, gold-plated RCA connectors for input and output, and a LED power indicator ( found only on Phonopreamps.com's TC-400s; these are custom-made to order for us). This is an excellent choice for use with component stereos, home theatre systems and mini-systems.
Better: Technolink TC-450 Mobile Phono Preamp

 TC-450

$31.50 plus shipping
(WITHOUT POWER ADAPTOR)
$35.50 plus shipping
(WITH POWER ADAPTOR)
With a 70dB S/N ratio and 0.05% maximum distortion, the TC-450 is our only battery-powered model. One nine volt "C" battery will run this low current-draw preamp for many, many hours. Or you can use it with the optional AC power adaptor, just like our other models. Either way, this preamp (both lightest and smallest of any we sell) adds a new measure of flexibility for those of you recording or listening to your albums on the go. The same sturdy metal construction used in our other models provides excellent shielding, noise rejection and durability.
Way Better: TCC TC-750 Phono Preamp:
Improved Edition with Even Better Specs
Including 85dB S/N!!!
Available in either BLACK or SILVER

TC-750

  $43.50 plus shipping
 
This preamp features better specs than the phono sections built into most component stereo receivers and amps! Improved PCB layout and 1% tolerance resistors resulting in extremely accurate RIAA equalization makes this THE choice for use with high-end systems and sound cards. If you're looking to make archival quality copies of LPs on CD-R, or just looking to hear that analog LP sound produced without coloration or added background noise, this is definitely worth the small extra cost.... Very nice packaging makes this an excellent gift choice for the audio perfectionist. 
Best: TCC TC-750LC Phono Preamp:
Same Great Specs as our TC-750
 PLUS an Output Level Control
Available in either BLACK or SILVER

TC-750LC

  $48.50 plus shipping

We've taken the tried and true TC-750 and added an output level control to create the PERFECT preamp for use with computer sound cards. Adjustable output allows correct setting of recording levels, something you may find your burning software and / or sound card driver has insufficient range to permit. When used with a stereo, the control allows the phono source level to be set to match other inputs such as CD or video, so that switching between sources requires little or no change in the stereo's volume control setting.

Line Level Boosters;
for Use with iPods, MP3 Players, Etc.
 Technolink TC-780i Mobile
Stereo Line Level Amp / Booster
Designed specifically for in-car use
TC-780i
 
  $36.50 plus shipping
(WITHOUT POWER ADAPTOR)
$42.50 plus shipping
(WITH POWER ADAPTOR
The TC-780i is a tiny (3" x 1.75" x .75") stereo line amplifier designed for either mobile or home use.  Most users will use it to connect a MP3 player, iPod or other portable audio player to an existing auto or home stereo. Doing so is simply a matter of plugging the player into the front panel jack, and adjusting the level control for best balance. Because the TC-780i provides considerable gain, it can correct level mismatch issues that often cause portable players to be lower in volume than other sources. A second rear panel  input (selected automatically when nothing is plugged into the front input) allows the TC-780i to be used even in situations where all available inputs are already occupied. The mobile installation hardware included allows mounting either over, under or in most dashboards. The underdash bracket can also be used to attach to a in-home stereo cabinet or entertainment center, or the TC-780i can simply be set on a shelf.
Technolink TC-780LC
Stereo Line Level Amp / Booster
Available in either BLACK or SILVER
tilt


$49.50 plus shipping

NOT A PHONO PREAMP!!!

The TC-780LC provides up to 20dB of gain for any line level source, allowing longer cable runs or that "bump" you need to cure low volume issues. Or you can use it to add a volume control between a line level source and a power amp which has no level adjustment of its own.
It comes in both black and  silver finish, has a front minijack for temporary connection of MP3 players and iPods, and includes a control-mounted power switch. DIN type 5-pin rear panel in/out jacks allow easy connection of older European brand equipment such as Bang & Olufsen,Tandberg and Revox. Have a magnetic cartridge turntable that just isn't loud enough compared to other sources? Our line amps can solve this problem for you; click on the image above to learn how!

Phono Preamps
with Additional Features

Technolink TC-720 Stereo Mic/
RIAA Phono Preamp;
Accepts both Condensor and Dynamic Mics
TC-720
 
 $47.50 plus shipping

This preamp features stellar phono specs and  performance, then adds the ability to also accept two microphones, either condensor or dynamic, to allow stereo live recording. These mic inputs are MUCH better than the ones found on most PC sound cards, because not only do they provide a superior signal-to-noise ratio, they work properly with dynamic mics and musical instrument pickups which do not require a bias voltage (sound card mic inputs generally will not work properly with these, resulting in very poor reproduction). Classy retail packaging makes this a super gift choice for the budding musician or recording enthusiast....
Technolink TC-740A Variable Output
Mic/Instrument Pickup/
Line / RIAA Phono Preamp
TC-740A

$55.50 plus shipping

A variable level output control and the ability to handle line, musical instrument pickup, dynamic mics AND phono input signals makes this model very handy indeed. This is an excellent front end for sound reinforcement applications that don't require the complexity of a mixer but that may require handling varying source and output level requirements from job to job. DJs and roadies
in a pinch will benefit from having one of these in their tool box to take the place of larger, more expensive equipment. The rear-panel attenuator switch allows use with higher level line sources such as tape decks, CD or TV audio. The TC-740A is the ultimate Swiss knife of preamps...
Technolink TC-753LC RIAA Phono Preamp
With Switchable Aux Input
and Output Level Control
Available in either BLACK or SILVER
TC-753LC

$57.50 plus shipping
 

Frustrated by the lack of inputs on your minisystem or home theatre receiver? Tired of having to unplug your TV audio or MP3 player whenever you want to play or record an LP? This phono preamp is for you. Our TC-753LC features excellent specs (equivalent to the much more expensive TC-754)  and provides a single line input to replace the one it connects to on your receiver or amplifier. Now there's no reason to choose between specs and convenience; you can have both!
Technolink TC-754 RIAA Phono Preamp;
Three Switchable Aux Inputs and Output Level Control
Available in either BLACK or SILVER
TC-753

$73.50 plus shipping

Need extra inputs? Our most versatile model combines exceptional phono preamp performance with three additional aux level audio inputs, then adds a variable output level control. Soft-touch switches control power on/off and source selection. While off, the TC-754  even remembers what source was last selected,  and returns to it when powered back up. The output level control allows connection to a power amp either directly or through an equalizer; or it can simply be used to fine tune the audio level sent to your computer sound card or receiver. Spectacular RIAA equalization accuracy and a S/N ratio of 85dB places the TC-754 among our top performing models; its additional features are extra icing on the cake!
Technolink TC-778 RIAA Phono Preamp
With 78rpm Equalization Switch and Input
Use one table for playing 78s and another for LPs,
and switch between them without swapping cables!
TCC-778
 
  $65.50 plus shipping 

Have you tried listening to or copying 78RPM records using the phono input on your stereo or an RIAA preamp, and found the result unmusical and harsh? The TC-778 combines our proven low noise stage design found in the TC-750 with the ability to select equalization much more appropriate for playing and recording 78rpm records. Standard RIAA equalization for playing LPs can be selected as well. Dedicated rear input jacks accomodate  separate LP and 78 tables; or the same input can be used for both (for those buyers who have one table capable of playing all record speeds). Simply set the rear panel switch to the position (connect or isolate) which suits your situation. 
Technolink TC-770LC 
High Gain Phono/Mic/Aux Preamp
The features of our  TC-740A and TC-780LC
(and then some) combined in one model!
TC-770LC

$87.50 plus shipping

The TC-770LC introduces both new features and more sophisticated styling to our extensive preamp line. All of our other MM phono preamp models provide the industry standard 38-40 dB of gain, more than enough if your moving magnet cartridge is typical. This preamp is different; up to 60dB of gain is available  to deal with lower output MM cartridges that sound great but just aren't as loud as other sources like CD. A front panel iPod/MP3 input with up to 20dB boost allows your portable player to be heard thru your home system without having to crank your stereo's volume control to the moon. And we've included front panel inputs that accept both dynamic and condenser mics, and a rear AUX input that also can be boosted up to 20dB.

Speaker and Source Selectors
Technolink TC-721 Turntable
or Line Level Source Selector
TC-721
$31.50 plus shipping

Unlike most source selectors, the TC-721 can be used with phono level signals. This allows two turntables to be connected to the same phono preamp (or phono input on a receiver). Because both the positive and neutral signal lines for each input are switched, this selector will also provide superior isolation and loop hum rejection if used for switching line level (CD, AUX, TAPE etc) signals.
Technolink TC-781 Eight Input
Line Level Source Selector

TC-781



$44.50
plus shipping

Too many sources and not enough analog inputs? No open input to connect your new phono preamp and turntable to? The TC-781 insures you'll never have these problems again, providing EIGHT stereo inputs while only utilizing one on your stereo. We supply labels so you can easily designate and remember which switches control your various audio sources. All switches are interlocked; selecting a new source releases the previously selected input.
TCC TC-25 5-Way
 Stereo Speaker Selector
TC-25

  $39.50 plus shipping

This model allows you to connect up to five pairs of speakers to a stereo originally equipped to support only one or two pair. One or five or any combination in between can be selected to play at once.  Power rating (per channel) is 50 watts; A headphone jack and output protection against shorts are also provided.

TCC TC-9 4-Way
 Stereo Speaker Selector
TC-9

  $33.50 plus shipping

This model allows you to connect up to
four pairs of speakers to a stereo originally equipped to support only one or two pair. One or four or any combination in between can be selected to play at once. Power rating (per channel) is 200 watts; this model provides NO output protection against shorts.
TCC TC-716 6-Way
 Stereo Source Selector
TC-716

Available in either BLACK or SILVER
$29.50 plus shipping

This model allows you to connect up to five stereo aux level sources to one input. One or five or any combination in between can be selected to mix and play at once. Unused inputs can be "reversed" and used as outputs to additional amps or recording devices. Four jack sets are RCA type; the remaining two are 3.5mm stereo minijacks (the kind found on Discmen and MP3 players).
TCC TC-37 3/2 Way
  Source/Speaker Selector
TC-37

$33.50
plus shipping

This model allows you to add BOTH additional sources and more speakers to a mini-system or home theatre receiver. Expand a single CD or AUX input to connect up to three sources; TV audio, MP3 players, etc... This unit also allows you to connect and select between two speaker pairs, even if your stereo only has one set of outputs. The speaker switch portion can handle amps and receivers rated up to 200 watts per channel. This unit is totally passive and requires no power. A sturdy metal case provides excellent shielding and durability.
TEC TC-616
6-Way Stereo Amplifier/Speaker Comparator

 
TC-37
 
$54.50
plus shipping


If you've been looking for a way to select between several stereo amps or receivers to power just one pair of speakers, this is for you. If instead you need the means to select from several pairs of speakers for comparison purposes, the TC-616 can do that too. Commercial duty products that can provide these abilities cost hundreds of dollars and are usually meant the be rack or custom installed in audio store displays; ours will work anywhere, without special plugs or connectors. 
Two Composite / S-Video
Stereo A/V Switchers to Choose From
$24.50 plus shipping

Both of these feature four inputs and the ability to convert S-video signals to a composite video output. Add more inputs to to your current monitor/TV; one of these even can be used with analog TVs that have no input other than an antenna jack!

MC Preamps and Digital Products

Our TC-760LC; the NAD PP-2
Finally Meets Its Match
 at a Much Lower Price!
 
Available in either BLACK or SILVER
TC-760LC

$73.50
plus shipping


The NAD PP-2 is a great product; for years it has ruled the roost among MM/MC preamps. But our TC-760LC aims to change that. Additional features like an output level control, ability to connect MM and MC turntables simultaneously (selecting between them at the push of a switch), and selectable hi/lo MC input inpedance make the TC-760LC the better value; superior specs make it the better choice as well. A price way below the NAD provides the frosting on this particular cake!
Technolink TC-7510
Stereo 24 bit / 96kHz
Four Input PCM D/A Converter
w/Built-in Headphone Amp
front
 
      $109.50 plus shipping

Need more digital inputs than your amp or receiver has? Want better quality conversion than your systems's built-in D/A converter provides? Or perhaps your older amp or receiver has no digital inputs, but you just can't bear to give it up... Here's the solution. Our TC-7510 provides four digital inputs (two Toslink/optical and two RF/coaxial) and two analog outputs, using a Burr-Brown PCM-1716 / Crystal CS-8414 chipset. A substantial metal case and universal voltage SMPS external power supply insure low noise, wide dynamic range and superior sound quality. The built-in 700mW headphone amp with level control permits private listening to a digital source while your main amp plays a different source thru speakers.
