Product Highlights
  • RIAA EQ Compensation

    I bought the VP29 to use in digitizing my LP collection for storage on my computer and to listen to through iTunes. Looked at some other pre-amps, but the VP29 seemed to have the best combination of quality and features for the price.

    Set up was quick and easy. I attached the phono outputs to the inputs on the VP29, and the outputs on the VP29 to an RCA-to-mini jack Y cable. I plugged that into the line-in jack on my HP PC. SOund is great, with minimal hum.

    I use Audio Cleaning Lab 14 to create and touch up the MP3 files. The 60Hz hum filter removes the hum, and it has crackle and pop filters as well as a "brilliance" filter to breathe some life into well-worn LPs.

    All in all, a solid little unit.

      Comments about Rolls VP29 - Phono Preamp:

      I bought this to connect my old direct drive Technics SL-QD22 to a modern sony AV system. The box works well and the sound is excellent. I connected the ground wire, used quality phono cables and I don't hear any hum or background noise - it's very quiet. Any rumble I get is coming from the turntable itself.

      The unit is simple and easy to install and works very well. I am pleased with the sound quality.

      My final amp and speakers are very high quality and this unit complements them well.

        When I bought my new Home Theater Amp I did not realize that I would need a phono preamp to power my Technics Turntable. I consulted B&H and they recommended the VP29. It comes as a complete package, with the power pack included. Hook up a few wires and I'm able to play my LP's again!

        Purchased this to use with my new turntable (Music Hall mmf2.2) and it works GREAT! Wasn't so sure how a ~$ pre amp would perform, but I am impressed! The sound quality is great and there is no static or buzzing.

            Although I'm not a DJ, I purchased the VP29 to bring my turntable up to line level and run the signel through my mixer and into my powered speakers. I do use the audio equipment for my electronic keyboards but thought I would run the turntable through that equipment as well and it works great. I really like the idea that you can also ground your turntable to the pre-amp and get a nice clean signal that way. The audio cames through distortion free from the hi and low frequencies. This is a well made brand name product encased in metal, and a real deal at the current selling price.

                        The VP29 is a simple and effective way to amplify your record player. I find the warm rich tone to be superior to any record player with a built-in preamp and even superior to many receivers with phono inputs (at least up into the middle grade of receivers).

                        Recommended for its warm sound, negligible hum, and fair price.

                          I've had my turntable sitting next to my receiver for years and now finally am able to play my old albums. The sound is incredible - no hum, just crisp clean sound. Very easy to set up and delivery of the product was fast. Very impressed with B&H (first time purchaser from their site). Being from across the border, the duty/taxes option on the purchase was very easy and seamless. And I was able to track the shipment every step of the way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others, which I've done a few times over the past couple of weeks.

                                    I bought this preamp so that I could hook my turntable up to my newer Onkyo receiver. I use a Technics SL-J3 with Bose speakers and the sound is crystal clear. I also really like that it offers the ability to rip your records to a PC.

                                        This is one of those utility purchases that is hard to get excited about, but it's great when it works just as it should. The quality seems solid and I have no problems recommending this to people who need a basic phono pre-amp.

                                                  I had a receiver that didn't have phono inputs. Rather than buy another receiver, I bought the Rolls VP29.I hooked it up in minutes (literally) and can now hear the wonderful sound of vinyl again.
