Technics amp SE-CA01 ( help needed )

My amp is 1996 and still going strong . I recently tried to purchase a Rega RP 1 turntable and the guy says I need to purchase a pre- amp ? . Is this right it do I just plug new turntable and select EXT to listen to vinyl ? . You'd feedback would be appreciated . Surely this amp should support turntable as was produced back when turntables where apart of hi-fi systems . Cheers Ben

I did not see any provision for phono connections on that amplifier, so a phono pre-amp would be necessary.
