The integrated high-quality phono amp allows you to connect the Vestax BDT-2600 to the line input of any mixer, amp or hi-fi system. As amps often omit a phono jack these days this is particularly useful. The pre-amp also offers a simple way to get your analog signal into your computer in order to digitize your vinyl collection. A bypass switch lets you use a conventional phono input. The "S" tone arm system draws on Vestax's professional designs. The heavy-duty metal chassis minimizes feedback and vibration. A power switch is located on the top panel for ease of use.
