Yes. You can get a decent phono preamp fairly cheap though.
You don't need a phono amplifier for this model. There is a line output option switch to switch in a built-in phono preamp that allows for it to be used with a receiver or amplifier without a phono stage.

Recommended budget speakers to go with this? Looking at Edifier @$130 or maybe go a bit higher for Audioengine A2+ @$220.

Oh right. I was thinking he bought one already but he mentioned his receiver not the turntable.

In for the cheaper RT80 turntable as this is my first turntable + Edifier R1280T speakers. Thanks OP! Any pointers for a newbie?

Spend the extra $40 for the heavier base, upgraded elliptical stylus and rubber mat. I nearly got the 80 also, but did a ton of research.

You'll enjoy it, the sound quality is so superior to digital it will make your head spin.

What are these? Do they play CD or laser disk? Or these play those plastic disk? Are these better than CD?
Sound is an analog wave & not digital. With this player you use vinyl & the stylus picks up the grooves to make the sound which is analog. Our ear drums vibrate to the analog sound waves. Digital sound is produced from CDs etc which is a sampling approximation of the sound wave.
Vinyl always gives the best sound quality & mp3s are poorer sound quality with compression.

Listening to records is more relaxing because it takes away the ability to skip or change a song. Just place it on your turntable and go about your day. Which is funny since that can bee seen as an inferior option.

I have this turntable btw, no expert but the sound is great and love the look of it.

So, the built-in preamp...same issues as with the one on the AT LP-120? Would the sound be better with it removed?

I have an AR Turntable that I bought in '84 for $300. I hadn't played vinyl records for 20 years with kids, work and CD convenience in cars came to the fore. When I fired it up I heard glorious music that was so much better that once again I'm a vinyl spinner. It's more about the quality of the cartridge. I have a Grace F-9E that I bought also in '84 for $125. I had offers for both for $900 when I was thinking of selling it but for the love of music, I will be keeping them. Vintage turntables are the rage. #backtovinyl.

Some say the built-ins won't be as good of quality and cause noise in the line, but for many folks, they work just fine. I can't personally tell any difference.
I have a built-in preamp in my record player (an AT-LP3) and think it's perfectly fine.
