Pyle Pro PP555 overview

  • 1Description

The Pyle Pro PP555 Ultra-Compact Phono Turntable Pre-Amplifier brings your studio equipment's phono-level output to a more suitable line-level output. This compact electronic preamp features a 9V battery compartment, dedicated RCA and 1/4” output connectors, a DC adapter, and more.

It takes your audio signal, amplifies its strength, and prepares it for further processing by a receiver or amplifier. Preamps technically provide voltage gain to your desired equipment and are key to assisting the signal source, whether it's a turntable, musical instrument, or a microphone.

The low-noise audio conditioning circuitry allows the preamp to boost audio to levels that are more manageable for various types of audio equipment. This makes it easier to adjust the recording level volumes of different sources from microphones and instruments alike.

This easy-to-install device is a good addition for any musician or producer whose audio system doesn't already include a preamp.

    Pyle Pro PP555 reviews

    PP555 Ultra-Compact Phono Turntable Pre-Amplifier with 9V Battery Compartment is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wouldn't buy this again I would give this a no star rating, but that is not a choice. I did not expect a great deal, but I did expect the product to work. Only 1 channel was operational and I did confirm that a signal was coming from the phonograph over both channels. Granted there may be flaws in any product, but I would at least expect that the company would answer my email. There was no way to phone and I followed the instructions to contact the, but after 1 week still no response, therefore I can only conclude that the poor product function reflects a poor attitude at the company. Too bad as the reviews suggested that this may be good. This in no reflects poorly upon B&H who delivered it with their usual efficiency.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ground? I had grand hopes but didn't really think it through. It had a sturdy build quality but the grounding nut didn't, and from my more than basic understanding of electrical currents, simply cannot work unless the unit itself is bonded (connected) to a ground source. Note in the picture there are only two prongs on the DC power supply. Meaning, no ground. If your turntable has a grounding wire separate from the power cord, it needs to be ground/earth. I ended up connecting my ground wire to one of the screws on the AC receptacle which works but even then, with no gain adjustment I was left with very little volume option before the signal became distorted. Oh! ....and no on/off switch other than omitting the battery and using that switch. Sorry B&H. I just believe I'm going to have to through a bit more money at it to get my record on. You'll be okay with that, right?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Got two, both faulty I ordered one, it only worked with the battery, not with the AC cord. B&H Support was very efficient and nice and offered to send a new one right away (no email confirmation, but oh well). It arrived pretty quickly and did work with both the AC cord and the battery, but only one channel worked! No! Out of curiosity, I tried the new AC cord on the first preamp, and it actually worked. So it was just the cord that was faulty with that one, right? Nope. When I originally tested the first preamp, I didn't listen to the sound closely because it didn't work with the AC cord, I just reached out to B&H for a replacement. Now that I got it working, I realized one channel was working well but the other one was only at about 20% volume. Two preamps, both don't work. I have tested the cables and turntable with other devices. I can't find my original receipt at this point. I guess I give up. These things are Pyles 'o .....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for a good price. We have an old TransAudio phonograph which we wanted to use with our Vizio soundbar. Internet research suggested several brands of phono pre-amplifiers at varying prices. We chose the PP555 by PylePro because of the other reviews we had read. We are now enjoying wonderful,nostalgic music in surround-sound (not one bit of hum). Thank you PylePro!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pyle turntable pre-amp Perfect for anyone who has a magnetic cartridge turntable not adaptable to say a home theatre system. Easy hookup. However, after I powered the unit up I got a very loud, annoying hum during play. Luckily, the solution was simple. I just disconnected the grounding wire. Had it not been for this, I would have given the product 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product to a friend We bought a new StanON turn table and needed a pre amp to hear it out of our surround system. Purchsed this per amp. It was easy to hook up, red-white-ground in from turn table, red and white out to surround system and works great without any hum noise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the cost Not too shabby. Surprisingly low noise and having the ground screw is a nice addition to the last model.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design, don't purchase. Tried 2 and sent both back. Only right channel worked on both. Obviously a manufacturing defect.
