Turntable --> 10 feet of RCA cable --> phono stage

Hi there. I have a "Project" brand turntable, and a Denon amplifier with a 'phono' stage. The layout of my living room requires me to have the turntable around 3 to 4m (approx 10 to 13 feet), in terms of cable length, from the amplifier.

My question is: will I need a pre-amp in between the turntable and the amplifier to avoid signal loss, or will I be able to run the turntable straight into the phono input, using 10 to 13 feet of decent rca cable?

(I am not an audiophile, so losses of 5%, etc, do not bother me much).

Cartridges cannot deal with the excessive capacitance created by 10' runs of phono lead. You'll squash the dynamics and roll off the highs. Low output moving coils are less sensitive to capacitive loading but will loose signal over the distance you propose.

What if you located the phono preamp at the TT and did the long run after the pre?
Wouldn't that be the ticket?
Forget the Denon's phono input.

The point is - I want to avoid the expense of a pre-amp if I can.

Sounds like you shouldn't have asked the question. Ignorance is bliss.
