    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.

    If the power plug isn't inserted just right the sound quality crackles a bit and if you touch or move the wire at all during audio transfer the signal is lost or sound crackles badly. I'll be sending it back. I tried it on several LPs and I'm not particularly satisfied.

    Comments about Rolls VP29 - Phono Preamp:

    I use this in place of a JuicedLink. At about 1/10th the price! Bought a RC Battery pack and now mics - even the cheap ones - sound better. It is geared for RIAA so you will have to do some quick RIAA-Invert. But otherwise it gets the job done.

    Use this in the studio when the client is to cheap to pay for dedicated XLR mics-AKG etc., and real amps. Mostly use this when people want to rent the room on the cheap and insist on using THEIR mics!

                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.

                        A fine quick fix but it has a terrible low frequency reproduction. I'm satisfied with the product but only because it cost [$]. For anyone who loves vinyl for audio quality I wouldn't purchase this product. if you open it up you will see why it is second best

                                  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.

                                      It has a warm/rich old school sound that I enjoy. It doesn't sound like a CD.

                                          no bells and wistles here... this product is simple but very effective.
                                          You will hardly hear it, that's a good thing, and given it's size, you easly get out sight as well...

                                          This item is a no brainer !!!
