A turntable just got to have the RIAA filtering. This has got to do with the way a record is pressed and all the way frequencies are handled during pressing.

To make the vinyl hold all frequencies different frequencies are amplified on a different way, this is what the RIAA filter does. The only way to go around this is to buy a turntable that has got a signal level output (like those OEM players).

 the reason i ask this is because , in the manual for the x one 92 it says " rca phono plug in turntables with magnetic cartridges requiring riaa equlisation. For non riaa  turntables plug in the line input instead "

RCA Phono plug is the name of the connector type.

This type of connecter is used for connection of almost all consumer audio products. This means that you can connect the Phono output of a turntable to the phone input and the line output (if available) to any line input.
