Plugging a record player into a portable Bose speaker thingy
Had a mate ask me on the weekend about getting a simple record player as she's acquired all her folks vintage wax...first of, she only has a Bose bluetooth speaker box thingy...any clues if you can run a record player through one of these with a phono pre-amp?

Like would RCA from record player into pre-amp and then RCA to 1/4 headphone jack into the AUX input on a speaker like this work?

She's not keen on having to invest in a whole amp + speakers hi fi system + record player

I'm not familiar with this particular speaker but I guess it would be like connecting any other powered speaker ie no need for power amps, just need a phono pre-amp

Yeah if the thing has a line in, I can't see why it wouldn't be just Turntable > Phono Preamp > BOSE

Sweet, thanks...I since learnt you can even get turntables with in built amps now, so they run on Line (limited by the internal amp) or Phono output running through a proper amp/pre-amp...far from audiophile shit, but nice and easy for the newby listener
