Connect Phono to Dialog
#31
I have been looking into the same issue for the past 3 days - i have a Carbon DC Esprit too.

Pro ject A/D Phono box S is discontinued unfortunately.

Seb thanks for the suggestions - i will take a look. I emailed Devialet and they could not come up with a single suggestion....

Hello Phantom users,

I'd like to connect my Technics SL-1501 to my Phantom Silver.

After quite some reading, I came up with the following hardware to buy:
RIAA Preamp: Art DJ Pre II https://www.thomann.de/fr/art_deejaypre_ii.htm
A/D Converter: Linky Audio Converter Analog/SPDIF https://www.thomann.de/fr/lindy_audiokon...gspdif.htm
Optical Cable: the SSnake Optical Cable https://www.thomann.de/fr/optical_kabel_2m.htm

Will that work fine ?
Anything I missed, or another suggestion ?

Thanks

In which way you would do that and has anyone experience with that?
Which brands would you prefer?

Thank you for help!!!!

The only way is to use an A/D converter into an optical input. I currently use Rega --> Cambridge phono stage --> A/D converter --> Phantom.

It is rather confusing. Maybe I misunderstand something, but I did nothing but just plug the phono optical cable in one Gold and it works ! What should be the fonction of such a D/A converter ? Sorry if my question is stupid.

Yes, your Project Essential II has a RIAA and an Analog to Digital converter + the optical output needed to connect it directly to a Phantom or the Dialog. The Phono Box S was only 16/44.1. I believe the electronics in the Essential II does 24/96 over optical.

I believe you are using a TT with a digital out, most turntables do not have this facility and need a separate phono stage which will have an analogue out.

Thanks for the clarification. Now it makes sense.

Seems there is a new option for turntable lovers. Pro-Ject introduced the new Record Master Hi-Res turntable incl. Phono-Preamp, USB & SPDIF (Optical) out at CES 2017. It seems to be based on the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC which is nicer quality and better sounding than the Pro-Ject Essential II. So I guess this is a very decent solution for a lot of Phantom owners. The price should be somewhere between $599 and $699.
