Seems you can wire it to the ring of a stereo endpin jack and common ground to the sleeve. This is from their web site:

Sunrise Preamp Buffer Boxes

S-B1 and S-B2

The Sunrise Preamp Buffer Box is a line matching device designed specifically to access the coupling feature built into Sunrise Pickups.The output of a Sunrise Pickup should be sent first to this preamp.

Sunrise Preamp Buffer Boxes provide the pickup signal with 12dB of gain, high resolution, and impedance matching capabilities. The active 18 volt Bi-Polar powered circuit eliminates pickup loading and line loss due to long cable runs, and also delivers up to 4 years of battery life with 2) 9 volt Energizer Alkaline batteries.

The S-B1 has two 1/4" parallel output jacks (Sunrise and Aux) which allows the same signal to be sent to two separate sources.

The S-B2 requires a 3 conductor TRS cable. The SB2 is designed to preamp the Sunrise Pickup along with a piezo pickup with each signal being sent through it's own preamp circuit, and then to the outputs (Sunrise and Aux) with the piezo signal sent to Aux.

The S-B1 and S-B2 produce the widest frequency response possible from a battery powered preamp, and allows the Sunrise Pickup to operate at it's full design capabilities.


Input impedance: 1 megohm

Output impedance: <100 ohms
