      Hi Jan – yes the 25 needs an external phono amp to be able to connect to a turntable. Unless your turntable has one built in. Sonically, an external model will sound better though.

      Yes, looks good Jan – make sure you use decent cabling though. QED is a good choice at a budget but Tellurium Q Blue II speaker cables are best for that department.
