        This product connected easily and immediately performed as advertised. You would not be able to tell a pre amp was not built into the receiver. Amazingly cost was less than $ + shipping and received next day.

        Comments about Pyle Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier:

        I use this with my M-Audio speakers and my Garrard At60 turntable. It works well for the price. Of course you can spend a lot of money on pre amps with amazing sound quality. But if you want one that is cheap and will give you great sound quality, this is for you. If you notice that there is a loud buzzing noise, this is NOT from the pre amp!!! It means you have not "grounded" your turntable. Your turntable should come with a cord that has a little metal bit on the end, and since this pre amp has no place to put a grounding cord, you simply un-screw one of the screws on the side a bit, place the end under, and screw back it. Voila! No buzzing!

                  Comments about Pyle Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier:

                  I have a 34 year-old JVC direct drive turntable that I haven't used in 10 years, because the home video system receiver I bought had no phono input. I saw the P999 advertised, and looked like it would again allow me to listen to the rather large vinyl collection I still have, many of which are unavailable on CD or digital media.

                  When I received it it was simple to connect, but I immediately saw there was no separate ground post to connect the turntable ground to. Turning the system on, there was a totally unacceptable amount of 60Hz hum. I wrapped the turntable's grounding lead around the ground side of one of the channel connectors, and the hum disappeared, but it would still be nice to have a dedicated ground post. I saw other preamplifiers in the same price range that have them.

                  The advertised 70dB S/N is about right, I had sufficient listening volume at moderate amplifier settings without having any noticeable hiss or hum from the system.

                  I'd probably opt for a different preamp if buying again, primarily because of the lack of turntable ground post, although the system can be configured to eliminate the 60 cycle hum.

                    After my stereo receiver died, I needed a way to play my old vinyl music. I got this preamp to connect my turntable to my PA System! So now it's nice and loud, and full sounding.

                    Note: You still will need to ground your turntable to your audio power chassis, or you'll hear hum.

                    Remedy: Wire audio ground wire (not power ground) up to a screw on the back of your audio system.

                        It's a simple but necessary device when upgrading to new audio gear that doesn't support a phono input. This gadget boosts the low-level output from a phono cartridge to "line" levels. I connected mine in minutes and it works fine.

                              I have a turntable and Sony Home Theater system that required a pre-amp interface to hear my vinyl collection. It works flawlessly. Just had to plug in the pre-amp power cord, connect the 2 supplied RCA plugs to the turntable output and into the pre-amp. Then connect another pair of RCA plugs (not supplied) from the out put side of the pre-amp into the input side of an unused audio input of my home theater amp and "voila", let there be sound! A whole lot cheaper than buying a new high-end amp that has a phono jack!
                              I have not experienced any buzzes, hisses, etc.
                              I have noticed, however, that it does not repair vinyl record scratches and cracks nor allow me to understand 1970's Bob Dylan any better.

                                  Easy to set up & sounds great. Some reviewers complain of a buzz or hum noise, but that's likely due to not attaching your turntable's grounding wire. I attached mine to one of the screws on this preamp and it sounds perfect.[...]

                                      Bought this for my Sony PS-LX56 turntable to bring its output to "LINE" level since my receiver has no "phono" input (like most new receivers today). Great sound quality. Very satisfied.

                                          Comments about Pyle Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier:

                                          I have a Technics SL-D20 that I bought on Craigslist, and I don't have a phono input on my receiver, but with this it works great!
