Why do you need a preamp? So you can get all of your signals up to full operating level. Basically, a “pre-amplifier” is connected between the amplifier and the receiver, and prepares the incoming signal so it can be further amplified without additional noise or distortion.
A few reasons to use a preamp include; boosting a low signal, cleaning up a signal to sound better, adjusting the signal (like volume control or equalizer), or blending multiple signals into one. Sometimes called a “phono-stage”, a preamp ensures that your amplifier receives a clear signal, regardless of the source that is producing the signal. A handy device, for sure, when playing or amplifying live music.
