Record Equalization:

A lot has been written about Record EQ's. We, at TitanAudio are primarily concerned with EQ's for 45 and 33 rpm records. Most Phono Pre-Amplifiers cannot properly playback older vinyl records due to the fact that almost all Phono Pre-Amplifiers use the RIAA EQ Playback characteristics, which has been in use world wide since about 1965. Prior to this time most records were cut to different EQ standards.
Our Prinz von Bluecher Phono Pre-Amp Series reflects those different EQ's and some of our Prinz von Bluecher Phono Pre-Amp's have at least 2 different EQ settings.
