Phono-Microphone Pre-Amplifier

General Electric UPX-003B


The UPX-003B preamp was designed to be used with G-E variable reluctance cartridges.

Sufficient gain is provided to operate the cartridge with a standard radio receiver or audio amplifier.

Equalization in the preamplifier itself provides bass boost to confirm with the RIAA record industry standard.

While intended primarily for use with G-E cartridges, the preamplifier may be used with any magnetic cartridge having a peak output up to 50 millivolts.

The unit is completely self-contained and ready to operate when connected to a power source.
