I just got a Pro-Ject Phono Box DC preamp to go with my Amp + Pioneer PL-50 setup. Plugged in the Phono Box, dropped the needle, Autoplay worked, and it sounded great. No issues there.
Annoyingly, after I stopped the the record, Autoplay didn’t turn off. It’s been 40min and the Amp still hasn’t automatically turned it off. I believe I understand that Autoplay is based on a voltage from the record player/preamp which sends a signal to the Amp, so I guess that signal hasn’t stopped, probably because the Phono Box doesn’t have an on/off switch.
Is this just the way it is with a phono preamp that stays ‘on’ all the time?
Will I have to get a phono preamp with an on/off switch if I want Autoplay to turn off?
TV Autoplay isn’t turned on, by the way. Thanks!
