AT-LP120 Preamp + Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hello. An AT-LP120 owner here and finally looking to make some moves :)


First thing i'm wondering about: is there an actual noticeable difference between removing the preamp and just switching the preamp off + using an outboard preamp?

It seems like some people say only trained audiophiles will notice. Some other just say fuck around and rip out the preamp. 


Over time I intend to upgrade to…

Nagaoka MP-110 cart

Music Hall Mini preamp

Denon PMA-600ne

+ I already have Klipsch bookshelf speakers


I really love the LP120 build and I figure it's time to get the most out of it. Let me know if you have any thoughts about the preamp shit and if my upgraded gear seem reasonable upgrades.
