      Extremely easy to install. Small size allows it to be easily hidden. I was instantly impressed with the increase in volume produced by my turntable after installation of this preamp. Before i had to turn my stereo volume all the way up and it was still no where near loud enough, now i have more awesome loudness than i know what to do with!

      A phono preamp is required to boost a turntable up to line-level so you can use it with other audio gear. Most DJ mixers already have two or more of these, as do most home-theatre receivers; but if you don't already have one of those sorts of devices in your home (or home studio), then this is a cheap and unobtrusive way of getting vinyl into your system.
      I've had mostly good experiences with Behringer, as long as one keeps one's expectations reasonable, and this is no exception. The PP400 does NOT give you audiophile-quality sound, but it's okay for casual listening or transferring old LP's to digital. It even has a seperate output for headphones. I was also delighted to see that it has one of those small, skinny A/C adaptors that doesn't take up any extra space on your power strip.

            Unit arrived as expected, good packaging and documentation (not needed, just connect cables and plug in power supply).

            The case and construction are more solid than expected for this price; no noise/interference so far. Very satisfied with sound output, although my current system is definitely not audiophile. Can now play vinyl with any sound system, durable and small enough to put anywhere.

                Its quiet and worked well right out of the box. FOr the price, it cant be beat. I am fussy about audio quality, and I did note a small amount of hum about -55dB, but I had not taken the time to properly ground the preamp. Since the disk I was transferring did not have any content below about 70 Hz, I took the expedient route of applying a software FFT filter to remove everything below 65 Hz which killed the hum plus some low frequency turntable rumble. If you need to capture everything down to 30 Hz, do as the instructions advise and ground the preamp and the turntable chassis.

                  Modern A/V receivers no longer have phono input(s) with RIAA equalization. This little unit is a perfect way to add vinyl playback capability using turntables with moving magnet cartridges. My old and new LPs sound wonderful.

                    I'd have to say that for the price range of this pre amp, it works better than expected. Sound quality is great. Also B&H handled the transaction great. Quick shipment, competitive price.

                          Like others I bought a new receiver without a phono connection so I needed a pre-amp to listen to my records. This inexpensive little pre-amp works perfectly and makes the records sound great. Only hassle is that I either have to leave the pre-amp on all the time or disconnect it after each use.

                                    All I want to say the product exceeded my expectations.Some off the reviews that I read sounded like the buyer wasn't too happy about the product.I bought the product because I wasn't able to listen to my LPs or 45 records. Now Iam in my music heaven.LOL

                                      There's not much I can say about this product. It's well made, compact, caused no noise in my system. Long AC cable with small plug so doesn't need a lot of space to plug it in. The problem I had was that after I connected the unit, I discovered that my very old turntable was not functioning properly. (I would have not discovered this if I hadn't connected the pre-amp) I ended up purchasing a new USB turntable. Worth the $ though!

                                              Link between an 8 year old Harman Kardon AVR 435 Receiver and a Technics SL1300. Compact little unit with separate headphone jack. Decided to go with low end product 'cause I probably wouldn't hear the difference. 4 stars only 'cause I don't know better.

                                                  I have an amplifier without a phono input so I needed a preamp to connect my turntable to the amp. The Behringer PP400 is reasonably priced and works as it should.

                                                    I like this product because it does what I need it to do.... which is amplify my turn table through a newer reciever that does not have a phono pre amp input. I am not an audophile that can tell what one unit sounds like over another however I can say without a doubt that my vinyl sound very crisp and clean and that is really all that matters to me.

                                                      Was happy to see it has a ground post, threaded to be tightened on wire common to DJ turntables. Necessitates an extra RCA patch to home stereo. Though I use this with a modern Technics SL 1210 (the black 1200) with M44 cartridge, bass response is minimal, so expect to boost this with dynamic EQ curve. Sony receiver was a gift, so though it has an impressive jack pack at its rear, am stuck with tinny turntable playback. Makes my DJ setup sound like a Victrola, but I do not blame the Preamp.
