The Radial J33 is a combination phono preamplifier and purpose built
stereo direct box made to handle the rigors of the professional recording studio
and the abusive environment of live touring. But don't let the tough exterior
fool you… the J33's sonic performance will easily surpass many audiophile
preamps costing much more.
Designed specifically for dynamic cartridges, the J33 begins with a low
noise front end. Inputs are standard RCA with the required turntable ground lug.
A precise RIAA low pass filter is tailored to produce a smooth, warm response.
The signal is then buffered to provide the audio system with a standard -10dB
signal with choice of RCA connectors for compatibility with home HiFi
entertainment systems, 3.5mm (1/8") output to feed a laptop or iPod, or a stereo
TRS ¼" jack for an audio recorder. A second set of direct box XLR outputs
deliver a mic level signal to feed a concert snake, mic splitter and mixing desk
preamp inputs. A rumble filter is also available for high sound pressure
environments to reduce bothersome resonant feedback.
As with all Radial DIs, the J33 features a 14 gauge steel enclosure with a
unique book-end design that creates a protective zone around the switches and
connectors. The internal I-Beam construction ensures maximum rigidity while
ensuring minimal stress on the sensitive solder joints. These combine to provide
exceptional shielding against noise while ensuring greater dependability in the
most demanding environments.
The Radial J33, a high performance turntable preamp that is ideally suited
for music playback, archiving, DJing and sampling.
