ZP100 to integrate a turntable without preamp?
I'm considering adding a turntable to my Sonos setup. There seem to be some good deals on the old ZP100 on eBay currently. Would a ZP100 enable me to add a turntable without the need for an additional preamp?

A phono pre-amp does two things: boost the signal from the cartridge, and apply RIAA equalisation to counter the pre-emphasis used when the groove was cut. Without a pre-amp a phono signal would be too faint and sound bad.
Either you need a turntable which already includes a phono pre-amp or you'll have to buy a standalone unit.
