Transcription record question

But if it really is a 16" transcription record he's trying to play, 
the laser player won't work.  He'll need a transcription turntable, 
such as the KAB Transcriber II described on the site. 
Equipped with a 16" platter, and also featuring a built-in preamp, 
it's a bit pricey at $529.  However, it might do the job.

One thing about the preamp -- if I recall correctly, the RIAA 
equalization curve was developed for the LP record; there were either 
different curves (or none at all) for other record types. It's 
unclear if the included preamp includes switchable equalization
