What about RIAA equalization?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on October 20, 2008 08:49 PM
When I tried to record directly from my turntable, the results sounded awful, but when I played the record through my stereo, it sounded fine.

I turns out that that records are recorded with RIAA equalization, and a phono preamp reverses it back to normal. When you bypass the preamp, you hear the highly EQ'ed version instead.

Is there an de-RIAA filter?
