Help, please.
I'm going to quote a thread I made on a different site because I don't think they're going to be of much help.

Quote:
So I bought a used Music Hall A25.2 "Integrated" Amp [http://www.musichallaudio.com/detail.php?p=18], but it doesn't have a phono out. It has 5 analog inputs (CD/DVD/Tuner/AUX/Tape) + a Rec. out and a preamp out (which can double as sub out).
Would a turn table work in one of the analog inputs? The user manual says the the preamp out is for "an additional power amplifier" (http://www.musichallaudio.com/product_f ... /a25.2.pdf)

Basically i'm confused why it's called an "integrated amplifier" if it doesn't have the adequate preamp signal processing internally to hook up a turn table as is.

If indeed I can't hook one up, i'll need opinions on if it's worth keeping (the gentleman I bought it from is allowing returns)...here's some additional info on my situation:

It was $200 (originally $350). I don't need to play vinyl yet (I was planning on getting a turntable around December). I was going to also purchase a new set of Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 speakers, and use my PS3 as my CD/SACD player.
I see that this Music Hall preamp is reasonably priced for a starter piece (http://www.musicdirect.com/p-3524-music ... mm-mc.aspx) at $150.

Would it be worth it to keep it anyway? As my total cost for being able to listen to my vinyl would be $350 + the cost of the TT itself, or...would it be better to return this and find a different (used) integrated amp which has a phono stage?
Because my plan was to upgrade to a nicer split power&pre-amp combo after using an integrated for a while.

Any help appreciated!

Well that site I had posted it on did return a suitable answer. I may go there for additional research though, thanks!

Found Casket Lottery's "Choose Bronze" sealed for $12 last night. Been looking for it forever. I just need "Moving Mountains" now and I'll be set.
