Got this super cheap than the retail price on fleabay. Perhaps for a future buy of a Denon MC cart. :)
Thanks Mikado for your patience and help. :)
Pro-Ject
Product Research
Features

Phono (MM/MC) Preamp: The Pro-Ject Phono Box allows you to connect a turntable with either a MM (moving magnet) or MC (moving coil) cartridge to today's home receiver's and amplifier which do not offer a dedicated phono input. There is a button on the back of the unit which allows you to switch between MM or MC mode.
Metal Case: The Phono Box's metal case shields the electronics from vibration and electromagnetic interference.
Dual-Mono Circuitry: The Phono Box provides optimal channel separation through dual-mono circuitry and low-noise ICs.
RIAA Equalization: The Pro-Ject Phono Box provides amplification and RIAA equalization for both MM and MC cartridges.
RCA Connections: The Phono Box features gold-plated stereo RCA connections. A stereo RCA input connects your turntable, and a stereo RCA output connects your home receiver or amplifier. RCA cables sold separately.
Ground Terminal: The Phono Box also has a turntable ground, in case your turntable has a separate ground lead. This provides shielding to the tone-arm and the sensitive circuitry in the turntable.
Outboard Power Supply: The Pro-Ject Phono Box operates off of standard household AC current, using the supplied AC power adapter. The external power adapter is separate from the phono preamp to further improve sound quality.
  • Input: 100-240V~50/60Hz, 0.6A
  • Output: 15V - 500mA (18V)

According to a YouTuber reviewer it's the best pre phono(Pro-ject) amp for MC budget available. Only wished it had a volume adjustment. Hoping it's loud enough. I enjoy my other MM carts. Just want to see if the Denon MC hype is all that. Saving to maybe get it in a week or so. If not to my liking back to ebay or Craigslist.

Oops - I meant the Pro-Ject pre amp, not the Denon cart.

Jose, phono pre's don't(to my knowledge) have any attenuation rather your Project will provide you 60db of gain in the MC stage, which should be plenty to feed the input of your preamp section of your receiver

Adjustable gain is that unusual? My ART has that....

my response was more in line with Jose's 'volume' comment. I myself don't know of any that do, but, as you've said yours does have variable gain adj. The one that he has selected is a fixed gain of 60db for MC.

I believe there is a differentiation in what is known as 'gain' in a phono-pre and 'volume' of a preamp / linestage.
