Not necessarily but most often. The turntables manufactured in the old GDR 
seem to have the equalizing preamp builtin. Nice feature...

This is a rather easy (and working) solution. I was told that Jamin has a

and as long as you do not overload your inputs with the distorted signal of 
the turntable, you can equalize the RIAA setting yourself...
