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). This is a temporary situation which should resolve itself over the next few months as new stock is received. In the meantime, buyers should take this variance in color into account when choosing to order silver versions of our products. swatch

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 better-quality PC sound cards.

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 new TC-450 introduces the  first battery-powered model to our lineup. One nine volt battery will run this low current-draw preamp for many, many hours. Or you can use it with the optional 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 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 preamps built into most component stereo receivers and amps! Improved PCB layout and 1% tolerance resistors resulting in extremely accurate RIAA equalization (coupled with a s/n ratio a CD player might envy) 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 extra ten bucks.... Very nice packaging makes this an excellent gift choice for the audio perfectionist. CLICK HERE for the PC World article featuring this preamp.
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 took the new improved edition of our tried and true TC-750 and added an output level control to create the PERFECT preamp for use with computer sound cards. The 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. Definitely a must-have feature if you do a lot of recording, and very useful even if you do not...

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.

NOT A PHONO PREAMP!!!


The TC-780LC provides up to 20dB of gain on 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 MM 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!

with Additional Features

Technolink TC-720 Stereo Mike/
RIAA Phono Preamp

TC-720
 
 $49.50 plus shipping

This preamp features stellar phono specs and  performance, then adds on top of that  the ability to also accept two microphones, either electret (condensor) or dynamic, to allow stereo live recording. These mike 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 mikes and musical instrument pickups which do not require a bias voltage (sound card mike 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
Mike/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 mike AND phono input signals makes this little item 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, CD or TV audio. With the addition of this feature, the TC-740A becomes the ultimate Swiss knife of preamps. 
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.
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-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 new TC-753LC features vastly improved specs (equivalent to the much more expensive TC-754) over the previous version  and adds the output level control feature which has made the TC-750LC our best selling model.  Now there's no reason to choose between specs and convenience; you can have both!
Technolink TC-754 RIAA Phono Preamp
With Three Switchable Aux Inputs
And Output Level Control
Available in either BLACK or SILVER
TC-754

$73.50 plus shipping

Need even more inputs? Our most versatile model combines exceptional phono preamp performance with three additional aux level audio inputs, then adds an 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 reselects 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 make the TC-754 our best performing phono preamp; its additional features are extra icing on the cake!

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 Four Input
Stereo 24 bit / 96kHz
PCM D/A Converter
with 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.

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
 
$42.50
plus shipping


This model allows you to connect up to three stereo aux level sources to one input on a mini-system or home theatre receiver.

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.
 
Technolink 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.

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!
NEW! 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.
NEW! Technolink TC-781 Eight Input
Line Level Source Selector

TC-781



$33.50
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.
