I assumed you were already aware of that, but RCA to 1/4" mono TS connectors are pretty common....

if you wanted certainty you can get this as well: http://www.amazon.co...cm_srch_tsr_rtr

(or a similar phono preamp)

you'd still need the above adapters, but that will get you in at line level.

Hi all,

 

I'm looking at purchasing myself a Rega turntable as an early Christmas present.

 

I don't have an amp though and was wondering:

 

Could I connect the turntable into my Line6 UX8 phono in and then have it play through the Studio Monitors I have connected to the UX8 output? Essentially the UX8 would be the amplifier... And could I do this without the PC being on essentially bypassing the PC???

 

Flip I hope the answer is yes!

 

Thanks,
Dean

i think you can, phono level is pretty low though... i'd be worried about cranking the gain/trim possibly introducing noise...only way to know is to try though.

Thanks TheRealZap

 

Suppose you're right

 

I'll have to give it a go and see what happens. I want to try reduce the amount of hardware i have hanging around

I realize i've shot the gun here... the UX8 doesn't actually have phono inputs. Only RCA S/PDIF...

 

Anyone know of a converter that will allow me to connect the converter to the turntable and then converter into the UX8 S/PDIF input??

Thanks for the help TheRealZap.

 

I'll let you know what does and doesn't work but worst case scenario I can hook them up directly to the studio monitors using the phono preamp.

 

Thanks again!

I hooked it up to a project phono out and then studio monitors. Worked like charm!

 

Thanks for the help
